@Silhouette Man, Yes Al Matthews played the US Air Force MSgt. who instructs Bond in the HALO jump in TND. It is shame that both he and Ricky Jay died this year.

As a comic book reader, Stan Lee's death this year was really sad. I started reading Spider-Man in the late 1990's and it has quickly become one of my favorite comic books along with Batman and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. He was an amazing storyteller and he  was never shy about addressing major social issues in his comic books( Iron Man being an Alcoholic for example). Always loved his cameo's in the movie adaptations of his works and his interviews on television. Without him, I am not sure that comic books as whole would have the popularity in mainstream society that they have.

Penny Marshall has died at 75.  She was part of my childhood as Laverne in Laverne & Shirley, and then she went on to a fine career as a film director, giving us such classics as Big and A League of Their Own.  RIP.

Thank you for that confirmation, PPK 7.65mm. I Googled him and found out that's who it was. Thought it must've been him. As you say, it's sad we've lost two actors from TND this year.  ajb007/crap
