Nichelle Nichols of Star Trek fame has boldly gone. Wretched news.

Bernard Cribbins: Doctor Who and Wombles star dies aged 93 https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-62330478

A seven-decade stint in the acting profession. Lamentable news, but everything Bernard Cribbens did you remember well, like The Railway Children, for instance. That's a talent for you.

... and now David Warner of Tron, Omen, and too many other to name ...

"we know too many of these kids ..."

Damn shame, he was such a fine actor. He was a very tall man who tended to play the bad guy, but with such panache, you'd remember his character. David Warner's famous Four lights scene with Patrick Stewart in Star Trek TNG, where he tortures his subject to believe there are five lights, not four, is fantastic.

Alan Grant was one of his generation's finest writers, making everything he wrote seem special. His work for 2000AD has become a legend, and outside Tharg's House, I'll never forget his Batman's with Norm Breyfogle on art duties. Some truly outstanding work there. What a tragic day, so condolences to his colleagues and family.

If a tree falls in a forest, and it lands on a mime, does anyone care?

The Mime does. Well, they don't because they're dead.

James Caan was a fantastic actor, and I'll never forget him in A Bridge Too Far as the angry soldier driving his critically wounded buddy through enemy lines. The Godfather was probably his best-known role, but Misery and plenty of others showed what talent he had. Another tragic loss to the Film Industry.

Film & TV / Duncan Jones Still Interested In Rogue Trooper Movie.
« on: 06 July, 2022, 11:15:22 AM »
Here's an intriguing interview with Duncan Jones, who confirms he's still interested in a Rogue Trooper Movie. It's a bit of a fanboy interview, so you have been warned, and the Rogue Trooper reference is around the 18:00 minute mark. There are annoying adverts too.

Joe Turkel, a brilliant actor in two Kubrick films, Paths of Glory and The Shining, has died. His Eldon Tyrell in Bladerunner was a magnificent vision of an indifferent Corporate CEO.
