I recently watched both Analayze This & That, and I looked up both films online and was sad to see that Jelly had passed away. He was great and it's very sad to think if there was a third Analyze movie like Deniro said there might be, that he won't be in it.

I was surprised to see Mickey Rooney is not dead. He showed up in Night at the Museum and will be in Tropic Thunder. He is working more than Vin Diesel.


But seriously, Roy Scheider is dead! WOW! How did I miss Roy dying?

^^^LOL When I saw 'Night at the Museum' I was like "this man is still alive?", but when I saw Dick Van Dyke then I realized... something was wrong.


*But thats not big deal when you think that Father Merrin (Max von Sydow) of the 1973 movie "The Exorcist" who looked like 90 years old in that movie is the same man who plays "Reynard" in Rush Hour 3"... and is still alive... damn!!!

Thing is Max Von Sydow isn't even 80 yet. He was born in 1929, and will next be seen in Scorsese's SHUTTER ISLAND.

Didn't Roy Scheider die within a year of Peter Benchley? I vaguely remember their deaths being fairly close together.

Charlton Heston!

He passed away April of this year and I just recently found out. Depressing really

Known for having played heroic roles, such as Moses in The Ten Commandments, Colonel George Taylor in Planet of the Apes, Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar in El Cid, and Judah Ben-Hur in Ben-Hur.

Correction on the death of Heather O'Rourke (Poltergeist)

While setting up this post, I JUST found out the older sister in Poltergeist, played by Dominique Dunne, was murdered the same year of the movie's release in 1982. She was strangled by her boyfriend and died at the age of 23. The murderer even got off on manslaughter and only did a little bit less than four years in prison.


I recently did a search on Heather O'Rourke. She didn't die of Crohn's disease....she died of bowel obstruction. Go to www.youtube.com/watch?v=au-QUyjOF7A This is a youtube video of the 80's show current affairs that was shown after her death and her mom is on there talking about her and her death.

Crohn's Diseas is a disease that affects your Intestines, basically its a bit like IBS, where if you have to shit.. you GOTTA SHIT! But it can get very serious, my brother has it, and his i dont believe is as serious as say the young lady who passed away, but he did have to have part of his Lower Intestine removed. Basically, if it says she passed away from Bowel Obstruction, that was because of Crohn's Disease.. thus she did pass away from Crohn's Disease

some of mine:

Don Adams - completely missed this... I was a huge Get Smart fan, and I got the complete series on DVD when it came out. I noticed the intro to every episode was done by Barbara Feldon (Agent 99) so I checked online to see what happened to every one else, and found out he died. Kind of embarrassed I wasn't aware of it immediately.

Arthur Miller - I just stumbled upon this about a month ago... he died in 2005, but for some reason, I thought he had been dead for decades. Death of a Salesman is still the best play I've ever read

John Spencer - He was from West Wing, but I knew him as Womack from The Rock (the FBI Director). I was watching The Rock with some friends, and someone grabbed my laptop to see if he was older than Connery. Turns out he died in 2005

Merlin Santana - he was Romeo on the Steve Harvey Show, which I used to get a kick out of... died in 2002

Melanie Janene Thornton - sang a lot of annoying catchy songs... I heard "Be My Lover" on the radio and wondered what happened to this group (the group was called La Bouche)... she died in a plane crash

Don Knotts - Wakko Warner must be crushed

John Vernon - Dean Wormer in Animal House... completely missed this too

Stack Bundlez - not a very well known rapper, but he was the victim of some more mindless gang violence. I was a fan of some of his mixtape work. I heard that he died in a song and was shocked.

God this thread sucks (By it's content )

I had no idea the voice of Ducky died, let alone in the manner she did.

Same for Barney Martin (Morty Seinfeld)

And I'll admit, I had a chuckle at Rodney Dangerfield's Gravestone. The way he was, He would put a message like that.

I was watching Hocus Pocus the other day, as I do every Halloween, and decided to look up the cast to see what they were doing these days. And I found out that Charles Rocket (who played the dad) is dead. I know him best as the bad guy in Dumb & Dumber. Apparently he killed himself in 2005 by slitting his own throat. Damn.

I remember being crushed when I learned Phil Hartman had died.


Even though that's going back a couple of years.

Other deaths that I didn't learn until recently

Trevor Goddard
Michael Jeta
Bruno Kirby



edit: just learned that Adam Goldstein died. I don't really care really. But he was famous for a while for dating someone famous.

Yeah, the Jeter thing threw me off as well. I remember him from Fisher King and Evening Shade. And Trang from Power Rangers.

Chris Ledoux - Country singer probably best known for being mentioned in the Garth Brooks song, Much Too Young Too Feel This Damn Old. "A worn out tape of Chris Ledoux..."

Bad News Brown - WWF wrestler most famous for fighting Roddy Piper at Wrestlemania


The next two are sort of minor actors. If anyone here has seen the movie Tales From The Hood, you'll know who I'm talking about. At least the character they played.

Lamont Bentley who played Crazy K and Rosalind Cash who played Dr. Cushing (whose best line was "What's the matter, Jerome? You don't like seeing black people get killed? But isn't that what you've been doing all your life? You know, Jerome, Cain was the world's first murderer. He slayed his brother. And how many brothers HAVE YOU SLAIN? "

I was reading about this recently that a number of wrestlers I knew of from the past 10, 20 years or so have actually passed on. Some of these genuinely shocked me:

Andrew Martin (Test) (March 17, 1975 - March 13, 2009)
Sherri Martel (February 8, 1958 - June 15, 2007)
Bam Bam Bigelow (September 1, 1961 - January 19, 2007)
The Big Bossman (May 2, 1962 - September 22, 2004)
Crash Holly (August 25, 1971 - November 6, 2003)
Miss Elizabeth (November 19, 1960 - May 1, 2003)
Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig (March 28, 1958 - February 10, 2003)

Damn that's sad. I always thought he had a great screen presence. Recognized him right away from Hocus Pocus and D&D.

On the same subject, i recently found out a favorite of mine died similarly.



Ed Flanders played Father Dyer in Blattey's The Exorcist III and cracked me up with his back-and-forth banter with George C. Scott. He was also in one of my favorite films, The Ninth Configuration. He was mostly known for his three time emmy winning run of St. Elsewhere. He hung himself in 95 after a battle with depression and severe pack pain.

Charles Rocket was also in Dances With Wolves (under the name Charlie Rocket, I believe). The way he went out is particularly depressing.

I'm a little surprised at the number of actors/celebrities who succumbed to mesothelioma. Now, since McQueen was a merchant marine, his death actually makes a little bit of sense, as I also imagine that at the time people didn't know much about asbestos' effect on people's health. Did any of the others live in places with asbestos-lined walls/ceilings? That's the only other way I know of people contracting it.

I remember Phil Hartmann from his appearances in Jingle All the Way and Small Soldiers, and it was only retrospectively that I recognized him as the voice of Troy McClure. I always wondered what happened to him, and then I found out that he had died.

Actually he was on Xena first (season one). They added Kevin Smith as Ares to Hercules much later.
