ZitatScottish actor Nicol Williamson has died aged 73, reports The Daily Telegraph. According to his son Luke, the stage and screen actor died of esophageal cancer on December 16. He was best known for his roles in Excalibur and The Exorcist III, as well as a long and much acclaimed stage career.Williamson was a star turn as Merlin in John Boorman's dark folk fantasy Excalibur, in which he was reluctantly cast alongside former lover Helen Mirren. Boorman's mischief-making paid off: the pair share the best scenes in the film, with Mirren's Morgana and Williamson's wizard playing wittily off against each other. Williamson and Mirren had worked together once before, although much less auspiciously, in a radical staging of Macbeth. The Hamilton-born actor made his name in John Osbourne's Inadmissible Evidence for which he received great acclaim and, later, a Tony award on Broadway. Osborne later described him as the greatest actor since Brando, a claim another playwright, Samuel Beckett, would corroborate. He was an actor, said Beckett, "touched by genius".Williamson's last screen outing came in 1997's comic-book noir Spawn in which he played a demon-cum-mentor to Michael Jai White's superhero. "By the time he'd made Spawn, he was done with it," Luke Williamson told Empire. More recently, he'd worked with his son on musical collaborations that showcased his diverse interests.The actor's rich and occasionally tempestuous life took him not just to Hollywood, but into the corridors of power. Harold Wilson was so impressed by his performance in Tony Richardson's Hamlet that he commended him to Richard Nixon. The result was an invitation to perform at one of the president's 'Evening at the White House' series.But Williamson was prouder of his performance as a different kind of politician, in the movie-length adaptation of The Resistable Rise Of Arturo Uri. He played a Hitler-like protagonist in the BBC's potent take on Bertolt Brecht's rise-of-the-Nazis parable. He also spoke fondly of a rare bad guy role alongside Sidney Poitier and Michael Caine in 1975 thriller The Wilby Conspiracy. Richard Lester's Robin And Marian, meanwhile, brought a much-valued opportunity to work with Audrey Hepburn.The actor, who was known as a straighforward, private man, leaves his son, Luke. "He was the most honest, funny and intelligent man I have ever had the pleasure of knowing," writes Luke on Williamson's official website. "He was my father and words cannot adequately express how proud I am of him."
ZitatSome sad news has come in: Producer, director, and screenwriter Zalman King, age 69, died this morning at his Santa Monica, California, home following a six-year battle with cancer. While best known for his erotically-charged projects like 9 1/2 Weeks, "Red Shoe Diaries," and Wild Orchid, King did dip his toes into the horror genre on more than one occasion.He got his start as an actor in the 60's and 70's (this writer being a big fan of his back in those days) but gained the most notoriety for writing, producing, and directing the aforementioned titles. His genre-related performances included appearances on the small screen in "The Alfred Hitchcock Hour" back in 1964 and "The Munsters" in 1965 as well as the feature films Saint Francis, Galaxy of Terror, Blue Sunshine, and Trip with the Teacher.In his later career King focused on documentaries about musicians, directing films about country singers Willie Nelson and Dale Watson and musician Toledo Diamond. He also directed music videos for rap groups, typically free of charge. "He loved to support artists everywhere he went," his son-in-law, Allison Burnett, said.Actor Charlie Sheen, a longtime friend of King's, posted the following on his Facebook page today: "The world lost a brilliant and noble soul today. My dear friend of 40 years, Zalman King, just lost his battle with cancer. Fought like a recon Marine til the bitter end. Say a prayer for his amazing wife Pat and their lovely daughters. Safe travels my friend."King is survived by his wife, Patricia Louisianna Knop, and their two daughters, screenwriter Chloe King and designer and painter Gillian Lefkovitz.(Dread Central)
Zitat von: StS am 5 Februar 2012, 20:19:10We've just heard the sad news that SANCTUM producer Andrew Wight has died in a helicopter crash off the coast of New South Wales in Australia. The filmmaker perished with BAFTA and Emmy award winner Mike deGruy in the accident whilst they were apparently scouting locations for a new project. Wight was just 51 years old and deGruy 60.Wight was worked on a variety of projects for James Cameron including the 3D underwater film GHOSTS OF THE ABYSS in 2003 before going on to write and produce SANCTUM last year, a film that was executive-produced by Cameron. SANCTUM was based on Wight's own experience revolving around his near-death incident in an underwater cave. It went on to take $100 million at the box-office.Mike deGruy was an award-winning cinematographer, workign on such projects as DEEP BLUE and many other TV wildlife documentaries. He tweeted four days before the crash; "Been in Australia 2 weeks, one to go then off to PNG. Love this place – especially Sydney on Australia Day."They were apparently due to work on an upcoming project together said to be a documentary about Papua, New Guinea.Imdb.com/thehollywoodnews.com
