    Movie legend Albert Finney died at 82.

    Loved him as Poirot in Murder in the Orient Express.

    I can remember him as a player at the end of his career and also as the first African-American manager in the ML. Inner-circle as a player, he unfortunately didn't stand out like he should have due to Mays, Mantle, and Aaron playing at the same time.

    RIP

    I was just watching him on TCM this morning (Tom Jones)! Damn!

    Maybe not his best performance, but my favorite of his is as ol' Ebeneezer in Scrooge.

    I liked his version of Scrooge and Hercule Poirot in "Murder on the Orient Express" too. I wasn't there that day but I know I saw him on the local TV broadcast from Arlington Racetrack. He loved to go watch horse races and I think he was there for the Arlington Million. His dad was a bookmaker, which are legal in the UK.

    Agreed. Not the best Ebenezer or acting by Albert, but I did enjoy him as Scrooge (plus he had the only musical version, and the songs were really good!).

    Also really enjoyed his performance in Erin Brockovich.

    I loved him in that underrated gem called "Big Fish." And I've seen him in many films by this point already.

    Swiss actor Bruno Ganz passed earlier today at the age of 77. He had a long and successful career, working with directors like Wim Wenders, Werner Herzog, Wolfgang Petersen, Jonathan Demme, Francis Ford Coppola, Ridley Scott, and Lars von Trier. His most iconic role was when he played Adolf Hitler in 2004's "Downfall (Der Untergang)".

    I suspect that’s probably being prepped even as we speak.
