In 1967 Richard had an accident in Central Park, setting himself on fire in the middle of an LSD trip. Massive reconstructive surgery followed. This left him with a distinctive scarred appearance, and made him an ideal candidate for being cast as villains in sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and action films. He also became a favorite among cult film fans. He also did not know when to say no, and has appeared in many forgettable titles. Which one of his many Movies or TV roles in this list is
your favorite? Please Let me know If I omitted one of your favorites!

Suggestions:
"He also did not know when to say no, and has appeared in many forgettable titles." You don't know why he appeared in those pictures. Maybe he had to. Maybe those were the only kinds of parts he could get after his accident. I would just say "He appeared in many forgettable titles throughout his career."

And the way you have described Jerry Hardin makes it seem like he appeared in The X-FIles and Deep Throat, not in The X-Files AS Deep Throat. I suggest: "A 38-year-old Jerry Hardin (best known for playing Deep Throat on The X-Files) co-stars."

Good? Bad? OK? In 1967 Richard Lynch had an accident in Central Park, setting himself on fire in the middle of an LSD trip. Massive reconstructive surgery followed. This left him with a distinctive scarred appearance, and made him an ideal candidate for being cast as villains in sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and action films. He also became a favorite among cult film fans. He also appeared in many forgettable titles throughout his career. Richard who passed on June 19, 2012, is gone, but not forgotten. Which one of his many Movies or TV roles in this list is your favorite?on this?

Lynch was a superior actor who elevated nearly any movie with his presence. I wonder how on Earth I don't remember him as one of the immortals in "Highlander" being a massive fan of franchise. 

Invasion U.S.A. is an ubelievable movie: it's cheesy as heck, barely logical, but thorooughly enjoyable and sometimes also falls under "reality is unrealistic" category. It also really tries to be in every genre at ones, even looking as a slasher film sometimes. 

Cyborg 3: The Recycler - oh... I've seen that movie very close to it's initial release date a few times (thanks, local television, you gloroious bastards) and despite I was like 2 or 3 years old I remembered it vividly ever since and some shots were pretty much burned in my retina. Lynch is a centerpiece of this movie but other actors are no slouches as well. 

As for Rob Zombie: I can understand why his films are polarizing, but really the fact that each and single one of them has a crazy amount of great actors is already a giveaway that they love working with him. It shows.
