One of my favorite actors passed away. Miguel Ferrer.  Throat Cancer claimed him.  He was awesome in Robocop.

R.I.P. Mike Ilitch Not a major celeb but very sad news for Detroit and Michigan as a whole. Owner of the Tigers, Red Wings, and Little Caesars Pizza. A big reason for the resurgence of the rebuilding of Metro Detroit he loved Motown he did lots for the community and prolly lots more that never got publicized

R.I.P. Alan Rickman, David Bowie and Carrie Fisher!!! :'(You were all amazing actors. I love the iconic roles you played, how you portrayed your characters: Severus Snape, Jareth and Princess Leia will remain as you showed them in my mind. 
Life is great. It's full of surprises!

It has been a sad month.

Chris Cornell of Soundgarden

Powers Boothe who starred in Tombstone, Agents of Shield and Deadwood.

Michael Parks of Kill Bill.

All sudden and without cause of death.

May they all rest in peace.

Agreed.  He was one of my favorites and I was looking forward to seeing him in more movies.  Way too young.

Nelsan Ellis... aka Lafayette from True Blood died.

Gotta admit... I didn't think I would like that dumb vampire show, but Ellis' performance and that sweet sweet "sookie" kept me coming back.  The guy brought that character to life and he owned it.  Poor guy is only two years older than me.... way too young.
