A five-time Emmy Award winner, Conway died Tuesday at 8:45 a.m. at a health care facility in Los Angeles, his rep told The Hollywood Reporter. According to recent reports, he was suffering from dementia and unable to speak after undergoing brain surgery in September.

If you want to see the brilliance of Max Wright watch the "Buffalo Bill" tv series. He was so funny. Of course the show was cancelled after about a season and a half.

Actor in original sci-fi classic ‘The Fly’ dies at 92

By JONATHAN LANDRUM Jr.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — David Hedison, who starred in the original sci-fi classic “The Fly” and appeared in two James Bond films, has died. He was 92.

He died Thursday in Los Angeles with his daughters at his side, a representative for the family, Jennifer Allen, said in an email Monday.

Hedison portrayed Capt. Lee Crane in the long-running sci-fi television series “Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea” and Spencer Harrison on the daytime series “Another World.”

“Even in our deep sadness, we are comforted by the memory of our wonderful father,” his daughters Alexandra and Serena said in a statement. “He loved us all dearly and expressed that love every day. He was adored by so many, all of whom benefited from his warm and generous heart. Our dad brought joy and humor wherever he went and did so with great style.”

Hedison played scientist Andre Delambre who turned into an insect in the 1958 film “The Fly.” He played CIA agent Felix Leiter in Bond films “To Live and Let Die” and “License to Kill.”

The Providence, Rhode Island-native began his career under the name Al Hedison. In 1959, he took his middle name David after signing a contract with Twentieth Century Fox.

Hedison’s family said the actor entertained friends and family with a positive attitude and “wicked” sense of humor.

Author Paul M. Sammon, a frequent San Diego Comic Fest panelist, posted this tribute to Rutger:

One of the joys of getting to know Rutger Hauer over the decades was my increasing awareness of shared similar interests.

One was out abiding affection/respect for the sea; both of us knew from first-hand experience that the ocean is always ready to kill you. Rutger would regale me with tales of his experiences in the dutch merchant marine - I would swap my own yarns of being a commercial hookah diver in the early 1970’s, in addition to the 7000 plus nautical mile ocean voyages I seemed to take every two years between San Francisco and the Philippines, back in the 1950s and 1960s m, when I was a Navy brat roaming Southeast Asia with my military family.

Perhaps that affinity for salt water was partly why Rutger usually invited me to formally interview, or sometimes just hang out with, him on his boat. Visits that always felt like I’d partially returned, somehow, to the seas that I still yearn for today.

We also shared a deep compassion for and understanding of the realities of Third World poverty. In that regard, Rutger quietly but consistently always put his money where his mouth was. His Rutger Hauer Starfish Foundation, a non-profit whose monies went towards education about and medical treatment for AIDS sufferers (primarily women and children), did much good. It will continue to do so.

In any event, earlier this evening, still stung by his passing and wondering how to privately honor Rutger’s memory, I remembered his love for sailing and the sea-“My escape from insanity,” he once told me.

Thus my recently-completed hour long walk. Through drizzling rain and overcast skies, alongside the beautiful St. John’s River. By myself, on a solitary trail, accompanied only by my thoughts, the soft sussuration of the river’s flow, the occasional cries of Blue Herons, Ospreys and Ibises, and the melancholy memories of a unique, iconoclastic individual I wish could have walked beside me.

Sail on, sailor. Sail on.

Grant Thompson, popular YouTuber known as the King of Random, died a few days ago at the age of 38 in a paragliding accident. So very sad. My son and I loved his videos.
