Dean Stockwell did a really brilliant performance as the villain in the re-boot of Battlestar Galactica.

Goodbye, Mr. Cain.

He was one koji the few actors who practically their whole life were in cinema business. Tragic news.

Are you sure you've got the right Dean there...?

But yeah, very sad news.

It was perhaps poorly chosen references. Beverly Hills Cop 2 was not one of better Dean's roles.

Ah, I see.  Thought you'd mixed Dean Stockwell up with Dean Cain - apologies!

Sad news. In weird timing I finished my re-watch of the noughties BSG last night. It says a lot for him, that amongst a great cast he stood out, despite not having loads of screen time compared to some. He pretty much stole every scene in was in.

Author Wlibur Smith aged 88

I loved the film The Mercenaries, based on his novel. A sort of grittier Dirty Dozen. I may revisit it soon.

Was that criticised at the time for its extreme violence? Rod Taylor was the lead, I believe and I think it was called 'Dark Of The Sun' at one point.

I am clueless about that title. I know it as The Mercenaries. I also do not know about violence, but I think I read somewhere that same fate awaited Dirty Dozen. Having watched both films, I can say it is a bit risque, but nowhere bad as today's cinema.

Ray Kennedy was an under-rated genius on the field. He's sadly been fighting dementure for years now and will be remembered for his bravely both on and off the pitch.
