    The sillyness was the only bit of decent atmosphere in that whole thread, but it was the sillyness that was objected to? Unbelievable.

    Anyway, don't want this thread to be closed too.

    So maybe a proper obituary. I saw that the main guy from Mission: Impossible (also the Captain in Airplane!) - I think his name was Peter Graves - has died. Oveur and out.

    I worked with him a few years ago, served under Oveur with two other guys. They were called Dunn and Unger. I was under Oveur and Oveur was under Dunn who was, in turn, over Unger.

    RIP Malcolm McLaren

    RIP.

    One of those actors who always seemed to be playing versions of himself, tbh.

    Was only a matter of time, RIP. Had many great roles in many great movies, but playing the villain in Speed was always the closest to my heart (followed by Super Mario Bro).
