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.

Ah, I'm sorry to hear that. A marvellous actor, indeed. May he RIP.

Sad to report the passing of actor James Cann, star of The Godfather, Misery, The Way of the Gun and so many other great films.  :(   May he R.I.P.

I'm fucking bemused by how my emotions work - so many people die and (emotionally, at least) my brain-chemicals couldn't give a rat's arse. But Jimmy Caan - this has me welling up. I was a weeping wreck over Iain Banks.

I'm not sure Rollerball could even work as a movie without his stalking presence.

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.

Yeah James Caan was a wonderful actor. I always think his role in Way of the Gun perfectly capture his cold, calm menance, touched by a real humanity. He's left a wonderful body of work behind as his legacy.

shinzo abe, former (and longest serving) prime minister of japan, assassinated (apparently with a homemade gun).

there are usually fewer than ten gun deaths every year in japan.
