Actor Robert Earl Jones, Father of James Earl Jones, Dies

20 September 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Broadway veteran Robert Earl Jones has died at the age of 96. The actor, whose son James Earl Jones found fame voicing Darth Vader in the Star Wars movies, passed away at the Lillian Booth Actors' Home in New Jersey earlier this month. Jones starred as boxing champion Joe Louis in Spirit Of Youth among other films and Broadway productions. However, his career was briefly interrupted in the 1950s when he was blacklisted for refusing to testify before the House Of Un-American Activities Committee. He later had roles in Odds Against Tomorrow, Wild River, The Sting and Witness, as well as a string of stage parts alongside his son. He is survived by James Earl Jones, another son Matthew Earl Jones and a grandson. »

Set Designer Bumstead Dies

30 May 2006 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Oscar-winning set designer Henry Bumstead, who collaborated with Clint Eastwood on 13 movies, has died at the age of 91. Hollywood veteran Bumstead, who worked on over 100 films, won Academy Awards for production design on To Kill A Mockingbird and The Sting. In a career that spanned nearly 70 years, he was also an Oscar nominee for Alfred Hitchcock's Vertigo and Eastwood's Unforgiven. Bumstead was diagnosed with prostate cancer during the filming of Eastwood's 2004 Oscar winner Million Dollar Baby. The disease was reportedly the cause of his death. Eastwood told The Los Angeles Times, "(He was) one of a kind. He seamlessly bridged the gap between what I saw on the page and what I saw through the camera lens. He is a legend in his field and a cherished friend. We will all miss him terribly." »
