Kevin Bacon paid tribute to his co-star in Tremors, Fred Ward, who died Sunday at the age of 79.
“Very sad to hear unique news coming in. When it comes to combating underground worms, I could not have asked for a better partner,” Bacon chirp.
“I will always remember him talking about his love for Django Reinhart and the jazz guitar during our long, hot days in the high desert. Rest in peace, Fred.”
The duo struck up an unexpected friendship while starring in the 1990 cult classic together.
The film follows two actors who decide to leave Perfection City, Nevada, but stumble upon the body of a friend. They soon discover that strange underground creatures are killing people.
In an interview with Respected Last May, Bacon said “Tremors” was the only movie he was interested in making a sequel to.
“It was one of my films that I wanted to revisit that character. I don’t look back at all,” he told the magazine.
Bacon said at the time that he “still would love to do it” if given the opportunity.
