Agreed. It's sad to see a movie icon or legend die, but it's even sadder to see a young man go. Goodybye, Andy. You were damn fine, and a pretty decent actor to boot, and you seemed to have a great sense of humor and charisma.

Frances Bay has died at 92. She's known most for playing "Grandma" in Happy Gilmore, but she'll always be "The Marble Rye Lady" on Seinfeld to me.

Steve Jobs.

post #4704 of 6902

Love or hate him, he was a fucking giant.

post #4705 of 6902

Charles Napier!

post #4706 of 6902

We all knew it was coming but still saddening to hear.

post #4707 of 6902

I guess we'll never know how Jake Blues would look eating corn on the cob with NO FUCKING TEETH..

Napier, FUCK. I think that one's worse than Jobs for me. He was great a couple years back in The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard as an old, violent car salesman. "He's talking about karaoke you FUCKING QUEERS!"

post #4709 of 6902

I remember Napier last in Austin Powers. "Feed my fish........not too much." 

post #4710 of 6902

I actually got the chance to meet Charles Napier about 15 years ago when he was guest starring on Pacific Blue (I was a PA at the time).  It was a pretty cool experience.  We had being born in Kentucky in common.

post #4711 of 6902

He was Sublime as Bill Henderson in Miami Blues.  I can remember watching Miami Blues for the first time 21 years ago and Napier saying in his first scene that he was going to retire and being pissed because he wouldn't be in any more Willeford adaptations.  If only Miami Blues had been followed by a Hoke Moseley franchise.

Her last role was in GTA IV, playing Packie's elderly mom. Ironically, always talking about how we'll all be judged. I can't decide if that's sad or awesome.

I wonder what the reaction in Oakland is.  Don't Raiders fans hate him?

post #4716 of 6902

Not at all. To the vast majority of Raiders fans he's a God.

Confirmed. It was indeed on his Facebook page.

Smoot has been...smote by death.

post #4724 of 6902

As soon as he signed off 60 Minutes for the last time, I had a feeling he didn't have very long.  

post #4725 of 6902

He was NINETY TWO. I'd think not, really. 

post #4726 of 6902

Joe Frazier.  He was 67.

post #4727 of 6902

Baron Munchausen himself, John Neville, dead at 86.

And one of the great classsical actors...Mr. Beaks wrote a nice bit about him at AICN.

Anne McCaffrey, one of the most first and most influential women in sci-fi/fantasy writing, has died at 85. Gone off on her final dragon ride.

Ken Russell, dead at 84.

Dying peacefully in his sleep seems a bit out of character for him. RIP.

post #4731 of 6902

Shame he never was able to screen his approved cut of The Devils.

post #4732 of 6902

RIP. I've enjoyed his films a lot over the years.  What an original.

post #4733 of 6902

Double post!  wtf.

Haven't seen any of his films except Altered States. But that alone is enough for me to mourn the guy.

Watch The Devils, Tommy, Gothic and Lair of the White Worm.   Those are all gloriously over-the-top, energetic and entertaining.

Agree sfm.  He was one of a kind.  RIP. 

 

post #4737 of 6902

Women In Love, Altered States and Crimes Of Passion are great films, and I really hope that now Warner Bros. can get off their ass and finally release The Devils.

post #4738 of 6902

So long, you nutty genius you.

Wilford Brimley was right: The Diabetes ain't no joke.

post #4745 of 6902

Wow, shocking news. I had no idea he had a stroke, either. 

 

I used to listen to him on O&A. The dude had some interesting thoughts regarding women.

I don't mean to be insensitive but... those names... his step daughter's name is A Million? 

 

post #4746 of 6902

First Greg Giraldo. Now Patrice O'Neal. There must be a "Tough Crowd" curse. Watch out Jim Norton.

 

Seriously, ONeal was one of the funniest guys out there. A sad loss.

post #4747 of 6902

Yesterday, Bill McKinney passed away at the age of 80 due to cancer. While he was in quite a few Eastwood movies, including playing Redlegs Terrell in The Outlaw Josey Wales, we all know him for one of the most terrifying scenes in film history: he was the one who made Ned Beatty squeal like a pig in Deliverance.

 

By the way, as a random aside, that movie was filmed on the Chatooga River, which is on the border between Georgia and South Carolina. Years ago, my dad and his pals went rafting on that river.

 

No, they did not run into any ass-raping hillbillies nor inbreds playing banjo.

post #4748 of 6902

I've always loved the story of him staying in character the whole time, and legitimately freaking Beatty out (to the point Burt Reynolds wanted to fight him). Method!

If I had been on such a journey and had "interacted" with some ass-raping hillbillies I'd have made a pact with my buddies that we never mention it to another living soul.

 

Just saying.

I believe the kayaking events for the 1996 Summer Olympics were held on that river as well.
