Obit from The Guardian.

Just snagged a box set of I, Claudius this week off of Amazon. Gonna start watching it Sunday. He was always one of my favorite actors. RIP

I love this actor, his death won't change that, just as The Elephant Man will always make me cry rivers. Goddamn... requiescat in pace.

Was just watching him last night in "Jackie" with Natalie Portman.

So 2016 wasn't a fluke...
The rout continues.

Maybe another 10-15 years and then all the greats will be gone....And we'll be stuck with the reality TV celebrities

I love 'I, Claudius', so when I saw the boxset on Amazon for twenty bucks shipped, I had to have it. It's probably been at least ten years since I last saw it. Everyone is fantastic in it.

Perhaps the most depressing thing I've read on these forums, or, in fact, anywhere.

"it is far more terrifying for the body to out live the soul than the soul to out live the body"

the remake of whistle and i'll come to you is one of my favourite horror movies of all time. sad to hear he's gone. may he rest in peace.

This seem's a little more poignant, alway's tug's on the old heartstrings.
