Hollywood a perdu l'un de ses vétérans.

" Son sens de l'humour et son regard unique sur la vie, lui ont valu de nombreux amis et des fans dans le monde entier". Un fidèle de Roger CormanNé à New York, dans le Bronx, le 25 décembre 1928, Dick Miller a suivi des études de psychologie et travaillé en psychiatrie dans des hôpitaux tout en se produisant à Broadway. Il a déménagé en Californie en 1950.

Il a joué dans une vingtaine de films de Roger Corman, mais son souvenir reste plus vivement associé au réalisateur Joe Dante: l'acteur Dick Miller, éternelle figure de la série B américaine, mâchoire carrée, lèvres fines et yeux inquiets dans un visage chiffonné, tantôt flic, pilote d'hélico, livreur de pizza, agent d'entretien, libraire ou éboueur, petit gabarit de toute une Amérique, est mort mercredi à 90 ans. Un réalisateur avec qui il tourne quasi exclusivement ces années-là. Il a joué dans des films de Robert Aldrich, Jonathan Demme, Martin Scorsese ("New York, New York", "After Hours"), Steven Spielberg ("1941"), Jonathan Kaplan, James Cameron ("Terminator") et bien d'autres encore. Il a aussi beaucoup joué avec Joe Dante. Et il aurait pu devenir encore plus culte si sa scène de Pulp Fiction (où il incarnait Monster Joe) n'avait pas été coupée au montage par Quentin Tarantino...

C'est avec Dante, à qui Corman a mis le pied à l'étrier, que Dick Miller trouve le rôle auquel il est associé dans la culture populaire: Murray Flutterman, l'ancien pilote de chasse de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, devenu prolo et harcelé par les Gremlins (1984). "Je suis bouleversé d'annoncer qu'un de mes meilleurs amis et un de mes collaborateurs chéris nous a quittés", a écrit Joe Dante sur son compte Twitter. Il poussa l'autodérision jusqu'à participer à That Guy Dick Miller, un film documentaire sorti en 2014 retraçant sa carrière de génial anonyme du 7e art. "Après ce film, vous saurez qui est Dick", ironisait le doc sur son affiche. Non pas parce que c'était mon ami mais parce que j'adorais le voir jouer!
