Walter MatthauIs there an actor alive today who deserves comparison to Walter Matthau? For decades, he filled a niche that he himself created, subtly reinventing himself to fit the characters he played and the times in which he lived, all without breaking a visible sweat.

Hangdog. Sardonic. Grumpy. If you're a member of the generation that was introduced to Matthau during the 1990s, in the twilight of his career, those words might be the first to come to mind. 'Grumpy Old Men' and its sequel, 'Grumpier Old Men,' showcased Matthau as a charming curmudgeon, snarling at "those darn kids" and the unfairness of life in general, yet always with a bemused expression at the ready.
