Robert and Charles shared the big screen in Martin Brest‘s 1988 flick which centered on Eddie Moscone (Joe Pantoliano), who hires tight-lipped bounty hunter Jack Walsh (De Niro) to locate a mob accountant named “The Duke” (Grodin) and bring him to L.A., Eddie tells Jack that the job will be simple, or a “midnight run.”

However, when Jack finds The Duke, the FBI and the mob are anxious to get their hands on him. In a cross-country chase, Jack must evade the authorities, hide from the mob and prevent The Duke’s erratic personality from driving him mad.

In a statement, Robert recalled working on the movie alongside Charles.

“Chuck was as good a person as he was an actor,” he shared in a statement via Deadline. “Midnight Run was a great project to work on, and Chuck made it an even better one. He will be missed. I am very, very sad to hear of his passing.”

Charles is best remembered for Midnight Run, as well as his roles in the Beethoven movie series, Heart and Souls and Heaven Can Wait.
