recent deaths...

Besides Richard Pryor, who you've all probably heard about;
Willaim Hootkins (who played Jek "Almost theere" Porkins, the overweight rebel pilot who died in the Battle Of Yavin at the end ov "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope", as well as Lt. Eckhardt in Tim Burton's "Batman" ('89), and many other horror and fantasy roles).
Moustapha Akkad, who produced all ov the "Halloween" movies (and many believe ended up being the reason a lot ov the later movies weren't too good). He was killed by suicide bombers in a triple hotel bombing in Jordan last month.
