Such a shame. Notting Hill is one of my all time favorite movies, and she did a REALLY good job on her character in that film.

RIP David Ogden Stiers, age 75. http://ew.com/tv/2018/03/03/david-ogden-stiers-dies-mash/

He played Major Charles Emerson Winchester III on M*A*S*H, as well as the voice of Cogsworth in Beauty and the Beast, and even guest starred in an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation, among other things.

This is a sad one for me, as despite my relatively young age I love M*A*S*H. My condolences to his family and friends.

Oh no

I'm also a huge fan of M*A*S*H. When Larry Linville left the show, they made an amazing choice with replacing Burns with Winchester. He was a much more 3 dimensional character and Stiers brought a perfect combination of aloofness, wit and even compassion to the character.

There have been few people in life who so perfectly demonstrate how you can overcome the limitations of your physical shell if you have the imagination and determination to do so.

Hawking was a great physicist who could not only grasp some of the most complex ideas we currently grapple with, but could also find ways to try and share those ideas with everyone, so that everybody's horizons could be expanded by realising what an incredible universe we live in.

May he rest in peace.

He had a small part in ‘Seven’as a police captain, where he sits down at a desk to discuss the case with Pitt and Freeman and the phone rings, he picks it up and says “This isn’t even my desk” and hangs up, then tells them to continue.

I do that all the time on in-house calls when I’m at work at one of my employees stations. 10+ years and only 1 dude got the reference.
