BRUNO KIRBY (PLAYED HARRY’S BEST BUD JESS)
Despite enjoying success in a number of film roles before When Harry Met Sally…, Kirby’s most notable success in the years following was alongside Billy Crystal in City Slickers where he once again played the best friend to Crystal’s main character. He was dropped from City Slickers II after refusing to sign on unless script changes were made, and seemingly left the silver screen behind for roles on Broadway. He made a few appearances in various TV shows and voiced Reginald Stout in Stuart Little before his death from complications related to leukaemia at the age of 57, in 2006.
After his When Harry Met Sally… role, Kirby was dropped from City Slickers II.
