Davis died in a hotel room during production of another movie (he had over 80 under his belt). Most will remember him as the Judge in The Stand, or as Da Mayor in Do The Right Thing, but to me, he'll forever be JFK from Bubba Ho-Tep.
RIP, Ossie. You were a great actor and an even greater man.

For those of you not following the dead pool, the leader of the Palestinian world, Yasser Arafat, has passed on to the land of a thousand virgins. Be he statesman or terrorist, sure enough he was beloved by not a few American administrations.

Russ Meyer, one of my personal favorite filmmakers, has kicked the bucket at 82. Russ was a pioneer in softcore smut, recognizing that ginormous boobs could be enhanced with drama and comedy - giving us celluloid gems like Faster Pussycat, Kill Kill! and Mudhoney, and introducing the world to the likes of Kitten Natividad, Tura Satana, and Erica Gavin (some pics NSFW). RIP, Russ - you and R. Crumb had a LOT to do with formulating my ideas of the perfect female form.

Gigantic (6-foot-2!) American cooking legend Julia Child has passed on to the great kitchen in the sky.
Interesting note, her niece, Philadelphia Cousins, announced the news. So, Child had a niece who was a Cousins. *snicker* Sorry, I had to. No disrespect meant. Julia, you were one hell of a lady. I raise my glass to you.

Today, one of the godfathers of DNA research and discoverer of the double helix structure of life on earth, the great Francis Crick, has died of colon hell. Other than being a devoted scientist and DNA theoretician til the day he died, he will most likely be best known as his alter ego, Dr. Goodfellow from Buck Rogers in the 25th Century - played under Crick's super-secret TV pseudonym, Wilfrid Hyde-White.
You can't fool us Cricky-baby! We know that bumbling old codger was you all along.
BTW, when y'all were watching that show, other than looking at Wilma's boobies and thinking how cool Hawk-dude was, could you follow a single thing Dr. Goodfellow was saying? I certainly couldn't.

Don Vito Corleone is gone.
According to CBS 5 in Phoenix, Marlon Brando has died at the age of 80.
This is the only credible source that I can find reporting it right now, but I'm scouring news sources to find another confirmation. More to come...

Grammy-winner Ray Charles has died at the age of 73.
Although it sucks that we'll never hear more of his soulful voice and wonderful songs, I have to say at least there will be no more crappy Pepsi "Uh-Huh" commercials.
