Actor Lane Smith died this past week. Geek-folk may remember him from Lois & Clark, he played Perry White, but i'll always remember him as Jim Trotter, the opposing attourney in My Cousin Vinny. It's one of my favorite comedies, and smith all-but overshadowed his co-stars. His brief appearence in Showtime's excellent Out of Order was his last on-screen film credit.
The Great Curve has also posted that Jeph Loeb's son, Sam, has lost his battle with cancer. He was 17.
My thoughts and prayers go out to the families and friends of both in their time of grief.
