Reports of Jan-Michael Vincent's passing were released today, though his death actually happened last month.  Best known for Airwolf, he also starred in Damnation Alley, a movie known around these parts for its contributions to Dredd lore (alongside the original novel the film was based upon).
Though he'd had a leg amputated some years ago, 73 still isn't a bad run, especially not when you consider the many films and tv shows he was in and the high profile and earnings he got from Airwolf that admittedly resulted in his infamous/ruinous toot habit.  Was just doing an Airwolf binge watch, too.

Sadly, I can never hear his name without thinking of Rick and Morty

Joseph Pilato.

Sad news. His performance as Rhodes is iconic - he chews scenery like nobody's business, his character's clearly a complete asshole, but by god, he commands the screen.

That's a shame. Ranking Full Stop is awesome.
