Really shocking news to me, as I hadn't heard about his recent battle with cancer. 53 is too young. Besides the previously mentioned roles, I'll always remember his performance in The Namesake.

A lie ain't a 'side of the story.' It's just a lie.

Sam Lloyd, aka Ted the lawyer from Scrubs. One of my favorite shows. He will be missed.

A real taboo breaker. His performance is Let the Good Times Roll (1973) is one of the highlights of the film.

I seem to remember a Little Richard TV movie from my youth. My main memory is how mercilessly it unloaded on fucking Pat Boone.

There's something ironically amusing about that. When I read of his death Festivus was the first thing I thought of...

RIP Jerry. One of those special kinds of comedic actors where just about anything he said - thanks to great comedic timing and line delivery - was hilarious.

Jerry Stiller was a great comic actor and a great person. I'm a big fan of his son, so I really feel for Ben and what he must be going through right now. At least his dad lived a long, accomplished life.

Jerry was such a funny man. I've watched all episodes of The King of Queens, most of them multiple times, so I know him mostly as Doug's crazy father-in-law. :rip:

Fred Willard's passing hurts. Two legends of comedy gone in one week. He always seemed like such a nice man. I learned today that he was close friends with Leonard Maltin, which is a delightful fact.

Really sucks about Shelton too. She was so young and could have had a lot of great work ahead of her. Her career was going very well at the moment. She had just directed four episodes of the new Reese Witherspoon Hulu series Little Fires Everywhere. Having a blood disorder would be horrible.

Monsieur Cinema himself! Beautiful career. I have seen him in well over 40 films (granted, some smaller, early roles in there) and he rarely if ever disappointed. Thank you for your service to art, Monsieur Piccoli!

Eli Hayes, a young no-budget filmmaker and popular Letterboxd personality, has passed away. I did not know him personally, but I know those who did, and he was a very nice person with a passion for film. Of his work, Nobody and A Florida Melancholy are probably the most well-known. Farewell, Eli.
