Star Trek Actor Leonard Nimoy Dead at 83

28 February 2015 2:29 AM, PST | WorstPreviews.com | See recent Worst Previews news »

Leonard Nimoy, the actor, director and author, known mostly for his work on "Star Trek," has passed away at his Bel Air home due to complications from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 83 years old. Nimoy started his acting career in early 1950s, which mostly included guest spots on shows like "The Outer Limits" and "The Man From Uncle." But in 1966, he signed on to play Mr. Spock on Gene Roddenberry's NBC series "Star Trek," which would go on to air for only three seasons. Thanks to a cult following, the show spawned an animated series, twelve feature films, four spin-off shows, video games, theme park rides and lots of merchandise. After directing the third and fourth films in the "Star Trek" franchise, he proved to be a talent behind the camera, going on to direct the 1987 hit "Three Men and a Baby." In recent years, Nimoy appeared in »

Leonard Nimoy lived long and prospered

27 February 2015 5:20 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Film Nerd 2.0 has become one of the things I am most closely identified with, which is fine by me. I think there is real value in talking about how we introduce media to our children, and there's absolutely value in talking about how that media affects them. It wasn't a column that I consciously set out to create, though. It just sort of gradually became clear that it was something I wanted to write, and the turning point, the moment of actual creation, was all because of "Star Trek." For Toshi, the 2009 film was not just his entry point to "Star Trek," but also his entry point to movies in general. When I took him to the theater to see the film, he stood the entire time, and he didn't want to be touched or spoken to or distracted in any way. He was fascinated, and he had a million questions afterwards. »

Rip Leonard Nimoy

27 February 2015 10:58 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

It is with great sadness that we have learned of the passing of actor Leonard Nimoy today at the age of 83. Best known as Mr. Spock from the Star Trek series, Nimoy garnered a legion of loyal fans throughout his career and his contribution to sci-fi over the last six decades has been immeasurable. An avid use of social media, we found out that he had been hospitalised over the last few days, but he said his goodbye to us on Monday, with this his final tweet, signed off with Llap - Live Long And Prosper. Last year it emerged that he had been diagnosed with a respiratory disease that was incurable, and he encouraged people to stop smoking as a result of the impact it had on his life. Beginning acting in 1951, and making appearances on everything from Bonanza, The Outer Limits, The Man From U.N.C.L. »

27 February 2015 9:21 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Leonard Nimoy lived up to his longtime catchphrase: Live long and prosper. Having achieved success in many arenas during his lifetime, the actor, director, writer and photographer died Friday in Los Angeles of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. He was 83.

He also dabbled in singing and songwriting.

But despite his varied talents, Nimoy will forever be linked with the logical Mr. Spock. Spotted by “Star Trek” creator Gene Roddenberry when he appeared on Roddenberry’s NBC Marine Corps. skein “The Lieutenant,” Nimoy was offered »

Patrick Melton & Marcus Dunstan to Write New Halloween Movie

9 February 2015 6:04 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

In October of 1978, we saw Michael Myers come home. It was the first time he’d stepped on his town’s soil in 15 years, but it certainly wouldn’t be the last. Over the decades, we’ve seen the serial killing prodigal son of Haddonfield cross back into small town limits to create carnage with everything from a butcher knife to a pitchfork, though we haven’t seen his silent rage at work on the big screen since Rob Zombie’s H2 in 2009.

But we’re now one big step closer to seeing Michael come home again, as the folks at Dimension Films have hired a pair of writers to pen the long-gestating next entry in the Halloween franchise, and many horror hounds are very familiar with the duo tasked with bringing back The Shape.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan have been hired to write »

Don Harron, Canadian Writer and Actor, Dies at 90

18 January 2015 5:28 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Don Harron, a Canadian actor and writer who brought laughter to Canadian and American audiences alike with his alter ego Charlie Farquharson, died Saturday. He was 90.

According to the Associated Press, his daughter Martha said Harron died in his Toronto home surrounded by his family. He had chosen not to undergo treatment for cancer.

Martha said he didn’t lose the wit he was known for at the end of his life.

“He was still sharp. He was still capable of being funny even though his voice was barely above a whisper,” she told the AP. “It’s horribly sad, but it’s beautiful too.”

Harron first introduced Farquharson, a country bumpkin who took any chance to make fun of all things Canadian, on a CBC television revue in 1952. He would go on to appear as the character on U.S. television variety show “Hee Haw.”

Farquharson was an author »
