Oh no. I got to meet him a few years ago at a con on Long Island. He was there with his wife and selling nicknacks at their table.

Well, this is embarrassing: I forgot Gene Wilder had died, posted a post and a thread about it because some idiot had done the same on Facebook, and here we are now. Anyway, here's Gene Wilder. FML

Kids, don't drink. Stick with weed like RVD

EDIT 17487849: Aaaaaaaand this hit a bunch of people too apparently. Which just makes me slightly less stupid than everybody else. Right?

RIP Sid Haig

😞

I was about to post that in the Horror Forum.

Most people will associate him with the role of Captain Spaulding from the Rob Zombie movies, but he will always be Dragos to me.

I knew that his role in Rob Zombie's 3 From Hell had been significantly reduced due to his health issues, but I didn't realize how sick he really was until now.

RIP.

This one stunned me when I saw it on social media yesterday.

It didn't help that I then read all the tributes from his fellow chefs

The other role aside from Spaulding and Spider Baby I always remember Sid for is the pilot in Foxy Brown.

We would not be true horror movie buffs if we did not include a pic of Sid from the Roger Corman schlock classic, Galaxy of Terror.

Sid was a legend. A great character actor, a star in blaxploitation films, television (he played 8 different villains on Mission Impossible!), Roger Corman movies, and even a Bond movie. 

He was a favorite of both Tarantino and Rob Zombie (Sid once said he would sign on for any movie either of them did, without even asking what the role was) 

He was one of the all-time great heavies in film and tv. A large man with a booming voice, dripping with charisma, able to switch from genial to menacing instantly, sometimes in the middle of a line.

I knew this was coming from what I heard last week, but I'm still devastated.

Keith is a good dude.

My Sid Haig memory is him walking into the bathroom at Monsterpalooza when me and my friend were loudly talking about playing Battleshits while pissing

I actually had a chance to have dinner with him and Bill Moseley via a friend who owned a horror/clothing store at a horror con, but that got scratched for some reason that I don't recall. She was probably too busy hustling that night.
