Among those expected to speak are actors Sissy Spacek, Sally Kirkland, Estelle Parsons, Jeffrey Tambor, Sandra Bernhard and journalist Michael Riedel.
Torn, whose many credits included a co-starring role on HBO’s The Larry Sanders Show, movies and Broadway productions, died on July 9, 2019, at his home in Lakeville, Connecticut. He was 88.

In March, Festival Internacional de Cine Álamos Mágico in Alamos, Mexico, will host a Rip Torn Tribute. Torn and former wife Geraldine Page shared a second home in Alamos for 20 years.
