    RIP Alan.

    He played the Sheriff of Nottingham.
    The Sheriff of Nottingham is now a muzz.
    RIP England.

    • No, I didn’t like his politics either.

        I don’t like the politics of the Housemartins, either, but they were a great band.

  • By Grapthar’s hammer, he shall be avenged!

      Ha! I forgot about that one! I didn’t know anything about his politics or anything about him for that matter. i doubt if I would have cared had I known.

      I don’t care much for the actors just their characters. “Hey! They’ve got the guy from Die Hard playing professor Snape! Great!

      He did some terrific performances.

    I suspect, BCF that like me, you are reaching an age where you know all the famous people who are dying. Twenty years ago just as many famous people died, it’s just you hadn’t grown up with them, so when their passing was noted, you thought “who is so and so”. Now you know them all.

      Or perhaps it’s just that they’re closer to your age.

        Hell, Bowie and Rickman are younger than me.

          I’ve lived longer than Elvis.
          I don’t know why I find satisfaction in that.

            Ya but how do you look in a jumpsuit?

          • dance…dancetotheradio

            Pretty good.
            Two percent body fat.

    • It’s my post, and I’m – quite a bit younger than Rickman.

      • Xavier

        8 whole years?

        • dance…dancetotheradio

          Professor Snape was pretty hot.

    When the news broke a member of my family (no names, no pack drill) told me it was Rick Wakeman!

    Die Hard, great actor. A very impressive villain. Loved his acting.

  • Hard Little Machine

    I hope he’s sexually servicing Rachel Corrie in hell for eternity.
