Oh wow, he's gone! Remember him playing some nasty characters very well.

So add him to Patrick McGoohan and Ricardo Monteban. :(

I keep wondering if the newer generation of actors, and some of those recently established, will be missed the same way those passing now are.
Can't see it myself. Too many stars coming and going and not enough actors who will build a career.

I never liked him much from what I remember, nonetheless another piece of childhood gone.

Real name William Wallace?! :shock:

I saw the name Ron Silver somewhere else and couldn't place it.
Sure he was in Blue Steel, or something like that, with Jamie Lee Curtis as a cop. But yeah, remember him from WW and TC too.

Shame. Oh, he was in this crappy movie about alien's among us starring Charlie Sheen. :ugeek:

Just read on IGN that Andy Hallett has died aged 33. For those that watched it, he played Lorne in Angel.
Ebenezer Scrooge was a weak minded lightweight.

She had a seriously distinctive voice. Remember her in Futurama. Knew her immediately.

Sounds like Dave and Michael Hutchence will have a bit to talk about up in heaven. Fair play to him for having that much life in him at 72. Good on ye fella, good on ye.

Yeah, that one has turned out to be quite weird.
Not the way a kickass action hero is meant to go, but leaves a mark in the memory, that's for sure. The Five Point Palm Exploding Heart technique has a whole new concept!
