BLIND FURY is a film of his that I enjoyed. I enjoyed other roles, too, but BLIND FURY is a favourite.

Incidentally, many years ago, a friend of mine told me he had enjoyed Rutger Hauer in the TV series SLEDGE HAMMER! I had to explain that that was David Rasche, not Rutger Hauer.

Saw him once getting out of a cab on New Bond Street!

Bladerunner, the Hitcher, Guinness ads and hopping into a store on Bond Street, this is how I remember him :)

I really couldn't say what he's done in the last 25 years without Googling it though...

And after Googling it, a few surprising ones I recognise in there that I had forgotten about!

Since his performances in Bladerunner and The Hitcher, I've always cast Rutger Hauer as Magneto in "my" X-Men movie. Thought he could've nailed it.

I'm a big fan, yet it is with some shame that I admit
that it wasn't until he was in Halifax filming Hobo With
a Shotgun that I learned his name is pronounced "Roo-
ger". Oops!

He did some witty intro narration between songs on Dutch
Prog musician Arjen Anthony Lucassen`s `Lost In The New
Real` concept album.

Robbie,Blind Fury reminded of Frank Miller`s Daredevil!
