    Re: Rest In Peace.

    I just heard about Meshach Taylor last night.

    My favorite role of his was as Hollywood in the movie "Mannequin". He stole the show with that memorable character!

    I was so sad to hear of his passing. The world has lost a great talent.

    Such sad news. This one hurts my heart. Desiging Women and The Golden Girls are two shows I absolutely love and it hurts when they go.

    British actor Dave Legeno (50) and probably best known as werewolf Fenrir Greyback in the Harry Potter movies, has died while hiking in Death Valley. No cause of death give, but I would guess heat stroke or heart attack. Hiking there in July is not a good idea.

    He was also in Snatch, Batman Begins, and EastEnders.

    Only 62 years old. So sad.

    REf. Dave Legeno. I read that it was heat stroke. He had been there for several days when discovered. He must have not let anyone know his plans and when he would return. So tragic. I'm not from a desert area, but I've watched enough stories to know that you must take precautions when going on hikes, walks, trips, etc. into deserted, arid areas like that. Maybe he didn't know.

    Am I the only person who's never heard of the Ramones?
