I haven't been paying attention to the news in 2009. Is this the first "celebrity" death of 2009?

Note to Krispistofferson - please don't use my picture as your avatar.

Never watched Fantasy Island, but saw him in some other roles. He will be missed.

This one as well.

"The Prisoner" star Patrick McGoohan dead at 80



1 hr 40 mins ago
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) Actor Patrick McGoohan, a British television star in the 1950s and 1960s best known for two shows that crossed over to American TV, "Secret Agent" and "The Prisoner," has died at age 80, his agent said on Wednesday.
McGoohan, born in New York City but raised in Ireland and England, was in the midst of restarting his career with two recent film offers but died on Tuesday at his Los Angeles home after a short illness, agent Sharif Ali told Reuters.
"He was vital," Ali said. "It wasn't like he was out to pasture at all. He was busy right up until the end."
Often cast in roles as angry or evil, McGoohan won two Emmy Awards for his guest appearances as a villain on the television detective series "Columbo" and gave a memorable performance as the ruthless King Edward "Longshanks" in the Oscar-winning film "Braveheart," starring Mel Gibson.
McGoohan first made his name in Britain, where he starred as the brainy spy John Drake in the espionage show "Danger Man," which ran for three years in Britain and was imported to the United States as "Secret Agent."
The series lasted just one season on U.S. television, but its theme song, "Secret Agent Man," recorded by Johnny Rivers, became a hit.
After quitting "Danger Man," McGoohan created, produced and starred in the more cerebral British series, "The Prisoner," playing a former spy, known only as Number 6, held captive in a bucolic but brutal prison colony for people who know too much.
The show ran for just 17 original episodes on U.S. television but endures as a cult classic that was even spoofed on "The Simpsons."
McGoohan's other film credits include roles as a mysterious agent in "Ice Station Zebra," the warden in "Escape from Alcatraz," a scientist in "Scanners" and Judge Omar Noose in "A Time to Kill."

we just watched RM in a really old film - he was awesome.

the man i consider the MVP of the entire ST franchise only got $100,000 to play Khan in 1982.

he had some rough health issues towards the end. RIP, sir.

RM's pecs were the real deal... the man was a great athlete and at at an age when most men would be happy to sit in a rocking chair he still worked out rigorously.

And as far as work went... he was a busy man to the end despite the fact he was confined to a wheelchair since 1993 due to a spinal injury.

Amazing to note also that his wife of 63 years passed away a little over a year ago.

I will always remember his as Khan while my daughters would know him as the grandfather from Spykids.
