Henry Silva 95. Versatile character actor with 140 credits. Voiced Bane in animated Batman/ Superman series. Was the go-to guy when Hollywood needed a "foreign" bad guy.

I wasn't familiar with that name, but Silva has certainly been in a lot: MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, the original OCEAN'S 11, and a slew of other Rat Pack-starring films (including the dopey-but-fun CANNON BALL RUN 2 where he played a 'gangster' with his old pal Frank Sinatra).  He was even in DICK TRACY!  His last acting credit was as an extra in the OCEAN'S 11 remake, so he seemingly rode into the retirement sunset awhile ago.
What a resume: and a very solid character actor who never quite made it as huge as most of the other Rat Pack entertainers.  His first credit is from 1950, so he had a solid half century career!!

That's six years longer than Queen Victoria.  She reigned from 1837-1901.  She was 81 when she passed.

She was also Kai Winn on Deep Space Nine, which is the first thing I saw her in. She was fantastic.

I've never been a big rap fan, but Coolio was a fun live performance I caught one year at Lollapalooza when he was on the second stage.  His music (at least at the performance) was such a great vibe: not exactly chill, but not aggressive or angry or whatnot either.  I remember his "Fantastic Voyage" being really fun live, and his interaction with a mostly white, mostly rock fan crowd was great: he really endeared himself to a bunch of folks who likely would've never gone to his concerts otherwise.

Talk about a career:
* 4 Oscar nominations, 1 win
* 6 Tony wins, 8 noms
* 18 Emmy nominations
* 6 Golden Globes, 15 noms

And she was BFF's with Bea Arthur, as well!  To top it all off, by most accounts she was incredibly nice as well.  I marched in the 1993 Rose Parade, where she was the Grand Marshall.  To pay tribute to her, we had an arrangement of 'Be Our Guest' we played as part of our repertoire, and when we were warming up before the parade began she heard us playing it, stopped by, asked us to play it again for her, and stuck around to chat with a bunch of us.  Very sweet lady, to give a bunch of kids from OH a taste of Hollywood  :P

Not a good year for comics, with the passing of George Perez, Neal Adams, Tim Sale, and now Carlos Pacheco.
