Leonard Nimoy Passes at 83.

Today, I want us to take a minute to honor a great man we lost yesterday. Leonard Nimoy. The man who would be known as Spock, the half-human, half-Vulcan member of the Starship Enterprise in the original Star Trek series, its animated sequel series, and several of the films.

Most recently seen on the series Fringe (of which I am a major fanboy), Nimoy had kind of retired from acting, returning only to previously created characters to continue the arcs he created for them. His most recent major role was in a cameo role for Star Trek Into Darkness. Below is a list of titles most notable for the actor, as well as his final message to his fans, in the form of a tweet.

Thank you Leonard, and, as always, LLAP.

Some sad news this morning coming from Hollywood. The wonderful and talented James Garner has passed away.

Garner was most famous for his role on television’s The Rockford Files, which ran from 1974-1980. He won his first Emmy for his performance.

Garner was also notable for his work on Maverick, The Great Escape, Promise (for which he would win a second Emmy), Space Cowboys, The Notebook, and Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

No cause of death has been released, though there may be some connection to the stroke he suffered back in 2008.
