BRUNO KIRBY (PLAYED HARRY’S BEST BUD JESS)

WHO - - Retro -

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.
