Saw this - quite a bizarre story actually.

The articles I have seen don't really get into the details. Sounded odd from the start. If you have a link with more of an explanation, please post. Thanks.
 
Oh hell... Elaine SCREWED Stritch. She was a saucy old broad. God rest.

And Johnny Winter too.

And Tom Rolf had a hell of a resume.

Ok big guy, you got yer 3. Maybe the rest can sleep through the weekend.
 
R.I.P. Jimmy

one of my favorites.
I enjoyed almost everything he did
 
Loved Rockford Files...that is the Garner I grew up with. In his later years he was a notorious alcoholic and kind of a cranky old man...should be interesting to hear the 'eulogy' Howard Stern gives him today.

Spanish Actor Alex Angulo Dead At 61 | Twitch

?lex Angulo, star of films such as The Day of the Beast, Live Flesh, and Pan's Labyrinth, has died in a traffic accident in his native Spain. Likely best known to film audiences through his work with ?lex de la Iglesia, this is a tremendous loss for Spanish cinema.

While mainly known as a comic actor, he will also be remembered for a dramatic and vital turn in Pan's Labyrinth, in which he plays the doctor who secretly aids the rebel fighters. Knowing it will likely mean his death, he kills with mercy one of the rebels who had been captured and tortured; as he walks away, about to be shot by Captain Vidal, Angulo maintained the character's dignity and moral fortitude. Only an actor such as he could have handled such a part without being overdramatic or indulgent.


Damn.
