Were They All Waiting For Him?

Charlton Heston, dead at age 84.  May he rest in peace.

He played a lot of famous people in the movies: 
     Andrew Jackson  ("The President's Lady", "The Buccaneer")
     John the Baptist  ("The Greatest Story Ever Told")
     The title role in "El Cid" (Rodrigo)
     Mark Antony  ("Julius Caesar", "Antony and Cleopatra") 
     Buffalo Bill Cody  ("Pony Express")
     Moses  ("The Ten Commandments")
     Michelangelo  ("The Agony and The Ectasy")
     General Gordon  ("Khartoum") 
     Henry VIII ("The Prince and the Pauper")
     Cardinal Richelieu  ("The Three Musketeers")

and some others on stage:
     Sherlock Holmes. 
     Sir Thomas More.

I imagine an amazing cast of souls awaited Mr. Heston in heaven.  Hopefully they were all pleased with his performances.
