    Yeah...Surprised that headline didn't mention Longest Yard. I remember Ed Lauter from the BJ and the Bear and The Misadventures of Sheriff Lobo(hey...I'm a 70's kid). R.I.P., fine fine character actor.

    Don't forget him as coach/girlfriend dad in "Youngblood" - fine character actor. I always enjoyed his work.

    Rough day today...

    Hal Needham 1931-2013 - Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    Hal Needham, probably the greatest stuntman who ever lived, died today at the age of 82. Needham changed everything about Hollywood stuntwork, and when he was done doing that, he made some of the most entertaining movies of all time. SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT was his first time out as a director, but he learned every lesson that Hollywood filmmakers could give him, having worked with so many of the great directors during his long, illustrious career as a stuntman. The resulting film is one of the best films of the 1970s - tight as a drum, enjoyable as hell, and featuring Burt Reynolds in his most iconic role as Bo "Bandit" Darville. There are very few films, pound for pound, that are as flat-out fun as SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT. It's a masterwork of directing and stuntwork, and it's all due to Hal Needham, who made movies for everyone, young and old, who ever wanted to stick it to the man and drink some ice cold Coors beer (preferably brought from over the state lines) while doing it.
    Antonia Bird 1959-2013 - Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.

    Antonia Bird made films and shows about many different subjects and themes. She was versatile and talented, first getting her start working in theater before moving to British television. She worked a stint on the beloved EASTENDERS in 1985, and was very successful working in that medium. Her first film, PRIEST, was hugely controversial at the time, and was condemned by the Catholic Church. But it was also honest and truthful, featuring incindiary performances by Linus Roache, Tom Wilkinson, and Robert Carlyle.

    It was Carlyle who supported Bird when the troubled production of RAVENOUS lost its first directors, and Bird's work on that film is marvelous. RAVENOUS is scary, horrifying, disgusting, and funny, often all at the same time, and Bird made what could have been a simple cannibal film into something so much more, with deep subtext and meaning. RAVENOUS is one of the best horror films of the 1990s, due in no small part to Bird's discipline and skills as a filmmaker.

    Antonia Bird passed away today at the age of 54. We here at Ain't It Cool offer our sympathies to her family and friends. If you haven't seen RAVENOUS yet, I can't think of a better way to honor her memory than to watch it, and this is certainly the right season for it.
    Marcia Wallace dead at 70 - report - MSN TV News

    Wallace's blazing red hair and bubbly delivery were tailor made for the role of the straightlaced Newhart's daffy receptionist on the hit CBS show. In fact, the part was written specifically for her at the behest of CBS chief Bill Paley.

    She would remain with "The Bob Newhart Show" for its six-season run before seguewaying into guest appearances on shows like "ALF" and becoming a regular on game shows such as "The 25,000 Pyramid" and "Hollywood Squares."

    She would also build a second career as a voice-over actress, giving life to Edna Krabappel, Bart Simpson's cynical fourth grade teacher on "The Simpsons." The role, a sublime parody of disaffected instruction, earned her an Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance in 1992.

    Wallace's career began with a semi-regular stint on the "Merv Griffin Show," and also involved successful forays on the New York and Los Angeles state where she appeared in productions of "The Vagina Monologues," "Gypsy" and "Prisoner of Second Avenue."
    awwwwww Mrs. K...you will be missed. Also...they are right about Ravenous. One of my all time fave movies. And Needham was just a badass. They don't make em like that any more. R.I.P. all.

    Aw, dammit! I got Hal Needham's book not too long ago. Hooper is my favorite of his films, though Cannonball Run is pretty fun, too. And Megaforce is the film that makes one of my friends the angriest. Haha. I missed a book signing and was looking for a another, hoping to meet him. Condolences to his family and friends.

    Marcia Wallace died too? :(

    Lisa: I was in the library at the time, but Janey told me that Principal Skinner and Bart's teacher, Mrs. -- what's her name?

    Marge: Krabappel?

    Lisa: Yeah, Krabappel. They were naked in the closet together.

    Marge: [gasps] Oh, my goodness!

    Homer: Wait a minute. Bart's teacher is named Krabappel? I've been calling her Crandall. Why didn't someone tell me? Oh, I've been making an idiot out of myself! [runs out of the room]
