The world’s most loved child star, Shirley Temple Black, passed away today at the age of 85 according to The NY Times. America’s Sweetheart was discovered at a dance studio when she was just 3 years old and made her first short movie in 1931. After a few small roles, she finally landed her first lead in 1933. In 1934, Stand UP and Cheer was released, just in time for her 5th birthday, and the world fell in love with her. Now over 75 years later we still love this little girl who was sweeter than the Good Ship Lollipop and Animal Crackers in our Soup.
In her later life, the mother of 3, retired from acting and became a US Ambassador from 1969-1992.

RIP Russell Johnson
January 16th, 2014 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Russell Johnson passed away this morning at the age of 89 according to his co-star, Dawn Wells. Johnson, was best known at The Professor stuck on Gilligan’s Island. Even though he had a long career, it was this role that people of all ages since 1964 have fallen in love with him over.
Earlier today, TV Land announced that Gilligan’s Island is rejoining their lineup on Monday, so make sure to watch at least one episode during the 12 hour marathon that starts at 9a, to keep his spirit alive. And maybe have some coconut pie while you watch him try to invent different things that will help them get off the Island, but none of those things ever seem to work.


RIP James Avery
January 1st, 2014 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

James Avery passed away yesterday at the age of 65. His Fresh Prince of Bel-Air co-star, Alfonso Ribeiro, broke the sad news on Twitter by saying, “I’m deeply saddened to say that James Avery has passed away. He was a second father to me. I will miss him greatly.” It was the role of Phillip Banks that made him a household name and gave him a special place in our hearts. But this is only one of the many roles we will remember his boisterous voice for, I say that because he was the voice of Shredder on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and many other cartoons like Iron Man and Aladdin. It was that vocal deepness and his powerful look that throughout his 30+ year career he played a judge, doctor and reverend on several TV shows like Amen and LA Law and in many movies.
So today let’s honor him with a laugh and watch at least one of his many funny episodes of Fresh Prince.


RIP Peter O’Toole

Peter O’Toole passed away this morning at the age of 81 after a long illness according to The Guardian. The actor was known for so much of his work like Lawrence of Arabia, The Lion in the Winter, Goodbye Mr Chips, My Favorite Year, What’s New Pussycat?, Hamlet, Supergirl, King Ralph and The Tudors to name a very few. No matter what he did, he always stood out as the good looking talented actor. Although he never brought home an Oscar for anyone particular role, he rightfully brought it home for his whole body of work.
So today remember this legendary actor and watch one, if not more, of his movies or television performances.

December 3rd, 2013 under Obits. [ Comments: none ]

Paul Walker and Vin Diesel became household names after they did the first Fast and Furious flick when it was released in 2001, and after many sequels together they formed a special bond. Yesterday Dominic Toretto came out to honor his fallen friend, Brian O’Conner at the site where we lost him on Sunday. The actor grabbed one of the police car radios to broadcast a special message he has for all of Walker’s fans that have been visiting his shrine in Valencia, Ca. He said, “I just wanted to say to all of you, if my brother were here right now and he saw all the love you were bringing here. If he could see for himself that all of you have showed up to show my brother love at this hard time. And the family gets to see all of you, to show the love you have shown Paul. It’s gonna stay with me forever.” Then he added, “I just wanted to say, ‘Thank you, thank you for coming down here and showing that angel up in heaven how much you appreciated him.’” And with that he put the radio down and the crowd cheered him. Somewhere up in heaven Paul is thanking his brother for those kind words.
So today honor Paul Walker’s legacy by donating to his charity Reach Out Worldwide.
