Steven Franken has passed away, at the age of 80, as a result of cancer. May he rest in peace. If he’s who I’m thinking of, he played a warlock who was henpecked by his mother, and had a crush on Samantha on Bewitched. Where he also played five other characters. He was also in an episode of the Adam West version of Batman as a valet, and was the voice of someone in Batman: The Animated Series. His best remembered role would be as the rich and snobby Chatsworth Osborne Jr. on The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, and for MST3K fans he ended up in Stranded In Space.

Tony Scott has passed away, at the age of 68, following him jumping from a bridge. It looks like he had recently been diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer. Condolences to his family, and may he rest in peace. He co-produced Prometheus, and helped make films such as The Hunger, Days of Thunder, and many others. He produced the forthcoming miniseries Coma, along with working on the tv series Numb3rs. David Krumholtz posts his remembrance of the man.

William Windom has passed away, at the age of 88, due to congestive heart failure. May he rest in peace. Star Trek fans will remember him from The Doomsday Machine as Commodore Matt Decker.
