    I'd love to see him in anything besides his role as Roscoe just to see what he was like outside of that character. I'll have to look up some clips.
    Always loved Dukes of Hazzard. RIP Mr. Best - thanks for the laughs!

    I remember a western where he was the bad guy, he was really good in that role. I don't remember what it was.

    As Roscoe he was awesome playing that character.

    RIP

    RIP James Best AKA: Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane

    He chased the Duke boys for many years when I was a youngster. He loved his sidekick Flash and had a major crush on the sexy Daisy Duke. Dead at 88.

    Best episode in the Dukes of Hazard is when they though he died .
    Also a good one was when he thought Boss Hogg had died.
    Man he was a good actor in that role.
    I got many a whipping calling my cousin a dipstick.
