Wilford Brimley ▸ Facts ▸ Comments ▸ News ▸ Videos
Anthony Wilford Brimley was an American actor and singer. After serving in the United States Marine Corps and taking on a variety of odd jobs, he became an extra for Western films, and in little more than a decade he had established himself as a character actor in films such as The China Syndrome (1979), The Thing (1982), Tender Mercies (1983) and The Natural (1984). He was the long-time face of television advertisements for the Quaker Oats Company. He also promoted diabetes education and appeared in related commercials for Liberty Medical, which later became a meme due to his accent causing him to pronounce the name of the disease as "diabeetus".
