There are damn few people who can lay  claim to being married to the same person for 56 years,ESPECIALLY attractive people who work in movies and on tv shows.
Anyone who isn't paranoid in 2021 just isn't thinking clearly!

Simply, WOW!

As Ilya Kuryakin he was coolness. Loved him as Dr. Mallard. I wonder if to some degree he played himself as "Ducky".
If, as anti-Covid-vaxxers claim, https://www.poynter.org/fact-checking/2021/robert-f-kennedy-jr-said-the-covid-19-vaccine-is-the-deadliest-vaccine-ever-made-thats-not-true/ , https://gospelnewsnetwork.org/2021/11/23/covid-shots-are-the-deadliest-vaccines-in-medical-history/ , The Vaccine is deadly, where in the US have Pfizer and Moderna hidden the millions of bodies of those who died of "vaccine injury"? Is reality a Big Pharma Shill?

Millions now living should have died. Anti-Covid-Vaxxer ghouls hardest hit.

One of my favorite lines from NCIS was when Jimmy asked 'Dr. Mallard' what he looked like when he was younger and he replied "A lot like Ilya Kuryakin."

I howled...

He will be missed, because I recall that role, too.

There was an episode where Bishop sees a younger pic of him and just goes off on how good looking he was, and I don't think she was acting at that point. It was hilarious.

Always Like McCallum and enjoyed his work. My wife and I still laugh about how one day decades ago he came up in a conversation with my mother and she said about him "Oh that communist!" Apparently because he played a Russian character in The Man Frum Uncle she assumed that he was one in real life. The truth is that McCallum was actually quite conservative in his political views including the need for strong families.

I came across and old series he did offered on I think Tubi, called Sapphire and Steel from 1979 that I meant to check out, sounds interesting from the synopsis, the Brits did a lot of shows like this at that time.

He certainly does. Good man on and off the field is what I’ve read.
What is the gospel? I’ll put it in a sentence.
The gospel is the news that Jesus Christ, the Righteous One, died for our sins and rose again, eternally triumphant over all his enemies, so that there is now no condemnation for those who believe, but only everlasting joy.
That’s the gospel. (John Piper)

Yes!  His glove in the 1970 World Series is stuff of legend. I read this morning that he holds the record for driving in the lone run for 1-0 games at 10. The score on the day he passed?  Orioles won 1-0.

Harry Potter actor Sir Michael Gambon dies aged 82


Quote

He was best known for playing Professor Albus Dumbledore in six of the eight Harry Potter films.

The Dublin-born star worked in TV, film, theatre and radio over his five-decade career. He had won four Baftas.

His widow Lady Gambon and son Fergus said their "beloved husband and father" died peacefully in hospital with his family by his side, following a bout of pneumonia.

I liked that Actor.
He changed the dress code at a lot of Hollywood restaurants. Robert Vaughn asway wore the suit and tie and MacCallum always wore the Turtleneck in the show.
People began to follow his style and the restaurants were not left with much choice when the wealthy showed up without a tie.
In a time of universal deceit - telling the truth is a revolutionary act.

Well maybe he was well known for far more than playing Dumbledore, I just re watched the Maigret series and was going to watch his Rumpole of the Bailey series next. It's sad when someone who passes is best known for their last popular role which is usually far from their best work.

Wow. Can Newsom appoint himself?

Edit to add: Any minute now, the QAnon in my family will post something about how "they're dropping like flies," as if most people don't manage to live to 90.

Second edit: Yep, the fly emoji was posted. Good grief.
