Obituaries

Post by jess_sayin on Thu Jun 04, 2009 7:28 pm

I just read something very sad - that David Carradine has passed away. I thought it might be nice if we started a respectful obituary thread for our Hollywood heroes who have passed on. RIP David Carradine. I loved him in "Kung Fu" - the television show.

Damn that sucks. I'll never be able to watch Kill Bill the same way again.

It's kind of strange but the last movie that I saw David Carradine in was Crank: High Voltage. In that film, he plays a sex-crazed old man trying to get a heart that will guarantee him eternal life. Does anyone find that ironic?

It's been reported that Ed McMahon has passed away. Probably remembered him best as Johnny Carson's sidekick. He also hosted "Star Search". Who's played him on SNL? I also thought he was really funny in the "Cash 4 Gold" commercial.

Confirmed. That's too bad, he was a worthy foil to Carson's brand of humor for decades. Then he fell on hard times and had to sell most of his property.

Just saw on IMDb, that Lorena Gale, who played Elosha on several episodes of "Battlestar Galactica" and Don Cheadle's wife in "Traitor" has passed away at the age of 51.

Yeah, but they always die in threes, and that completes the triptych. We'll probably have a dry spell now.

If Jeff Goldblum dies, then we are all fucked.

They're reporting that MJ died of a possible drug induced heart attack. Those are unconfirmed however.

The drugs in question were most likely painkillers that he had been taking. Just like with Heath Ledger's death last year, the drugs in question were over the counter and prescribed beforehand.

Just found out that comedian Fred Travalena died. Known as the "Man of a Thousand Faces", he made numerous game show guest appearances in the 1970's.
