I couldn't possibly comment.

The Voice of Death died this morning. Otherwise known as Ian Richardson. Boo :( I may go and buy the DVDs of House of Cards. I suppose, though, that if you're going to go, dying quietly in your sleep after not having been ill at all can't really be beaten.

My friendslist is awesome, though. More people have mentioned Ian Richardson's death in the past half hour than mentioned Anna Nicole Smith's at all. *hugs flist*

Bah. I want miss_s_b's Francis Urquhart icon now.

A Playboy bunny who was "famous" for marrying an ancient millionaire and then getting in a legal fight for his money after he died...

It was an overdose, but there are tons of conspiracy theories going around :) Cos there's a paternity battle over her baby daughter, who inherits it all, apparently.

Roger O'Neil anyone? ;) Is it just me, or is passing the inheritance to a baby of questionable paternity rather stupid? Unless it's all kept in trust until she's 18 or 21. That shouldn't even rate as news IMHO, but I'm not Ben Landless Kerry Packer.

*sniffs* I was a serious House of Cards fan, especially due to Richardson's performance. (May I please, please steal your icon with That Phrase on it?) Reading Dobb's novel after seeing the TV series was an enormous mistake; not only was FU not half as confident (and there weren't any lovely musings in asides!) but the plot changed significantly.

Dying in one's sleep is certainly a preferable way of passing away.

Oh dear. CNN.com links to the story on the front page using the text "Actor in Grey Poupon ad dead at 72".
