    René Auberjonois Dies: ‘Benson’ And ‘Star Trek’ Actor Was 79

    René Auberjonois, an actor who rose to prominence with roles on Benson, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and the film M.A.S.H., died Sunday at his home in Los Angeles of metastatic lung cancer, the Associated Press reported. He was 79.

    Auberjonois was a character actor and performed in theater of the 1960s. He made the transition to film in the 1970s, and appeared on a string of popular television series in the 1980s and ’90s.

    He made a mark as Father Mulcahy in Robert Altman’s 1970 film M.A.S.H. Auberjonois would later win over a legion of television fans as Clayton Runnymede Endicott III, chief of staff at the governor’s mansion on the sitcom Benson, which aired from 1979-1986.

    He segued to sci-fi television with his portrayal of Constable Odo, the station’s chief of security, on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, which aired from 1993-1999.

    In 1984, Auberjonois received a Primetime Emmy nomination for his role on Benson. He picked up a second Emmy nomination in 2001 in the guest actor drama series category for playing Judge Mantz on legal drama The Practice.

    His other memorable recurring roles were as Walter Nowack in Madam Secretary; a cardinal in Archer; and a judge in Judging Amy.

    Auberjonois also did extensive voice work in animation, including as the singing French chef in Disney’s 1989 film The Little Mermaid. He played Kangent in The Pirates of Dark Water; and Dr. March in Batman: The Animated Series.

    The actor was born in New York in 1940. He graduated from Pittsburgh’s Carnegie Institute of Technology, now Carnegie Mellon. Auberjonois later decided to pursue a career as a performer, joining theater companies and landing roles on Broadway in 1968. He earned Tony nominations for his stage work in 1973’s “The Good Doctor,” 1984’s “Big River,” and 1989’s “City of Angels.”

    Star Trek: The Next Generation Star Marina Sirtis' Husband Michael Lamper Dead at 61

    Usually when a star from Star Trek: The Next Generation tweets it is usually for some fun fact or a bit of promotion. But, Marina Sirtis came to the social media platform with some sad news. Her husband Michael Lamper has passed away at the age of 61. Lamper was both a guitarist and an Acamarian Gatherer on an episode of The Next Generation in the third season. This development is quite shocking and sad for fans who enjoyed both her work as Deanna Troi on The Next Generation and her husband’s appearance in an episode as well. Everyone has a favorite episode and “The Vengeance Factor” is probably it for someone out there.

    The actress wrote on Twitter, “I’m going to be gone for a while. My beloved husband passed away peacefully in his sleep last night. For those of you waiting for a shout out on Cameo, please forgive me I don’t feel up to i. I’ll let you know when the service is back on.”

    Back in 1992, Lamper married Sirtis with Bret Spiner and Michael Dorn as groomsmen. They met after one of the actress’ personal friends introduced Lamper. He played alongside a number of accomplished musicians like Tommy Shaw from Stix, Quiet Riot and Los Lobos.

    Marie Fredriksson of Roxette Dead at 61

    Marie Fredriksson -- lead singer for the pop-rock duo, Roxette -- has died after a 17-year battle with cancer ... TMZ has learned.

    According to her management group ... the Swedish musician passed away Monday. After being diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2002, Marie received aggressive treatment that was ultimately successful, allowing Roxette to return after a long hiatus and release new music.

    However, Marie was advised by doctors to stop touring and focus on her health in 2016.

    Roxette formed in 1986 and became an international sensation with their breakout #1 hit in 1989 -- "The Look."

    The duo's success continued the following year with the single "It Must Have Been Love," which was featured on the soundtrack of the iconic Julia Roberts/Richard Gere rom-com, "Pretty Woman."

    The group's other big hits include "Listen to Your Heart" and "Joyride." All in all, Roxette put out 10 albums to go along with 10 major tours.

    Marie's management says she "leaves us a grand musical legacy." It says, "Her amazing voice – both strong and sensitive – and her magical live performances will be remembered by all of us who was lucky enough to witness them," adding ... "But we also remember a wonderful person with a huge appetite for life, and woman with a very big heart who cared for everybody she met."

    Her former bandmate, guitarist and singer Per Gessle, says ... "Thank you, Marie, thanks for everything. You were an outstanding musician, a master of the voice, an amazing performer. Thanks for painting my black and white songs in the most beautiful colours. You were the most wonderful friend for over 40 years."

    Fredriksson's survived by her husband and 2 children.

    She was 61.

    RIP

    Philip McKeon, ‘Alice’ Star, Dies at 55

    Actor was brother to “Facts of Life” star Nancy McKeon


    “Alice” star Philip McKeon has died at the age of 55, according to a representative.

    McKeon died on Tuesday after a long battle with an unspecified illness.

    “We are all beyond heartbroken and devastated over Phil’s passing,” family spokesperson Jeff Ballard said in a statement. “His wonderful sense of humor, kindness and loyalty will be remembered by all who crossed his path in life.”

    McKeon, who was the older brother of “Facts of Life” star Nancy McKeon, was best known for co-starring alongside Linda Lavin in the CBS comedy “Alice,” from 1976 to 1985. He went on to make appearances on shows including “CHiPs,” “Fantasy Island” and “The Love Boat.”

    After his career as an actor, McKeon went on to work in radio, serving in the news department at the Los Angeles station KFWB News 98 for a decade. Most recently, he was the host of his own radio show in Wimberly, Texas.

    Charlie Sheen, who appeared alongside McKeon in an episode of “Amazing Stories,” was among those who paid tribute to McKeon on social media on Tuesday.

    McKeon is survived by his sister Nancy and mother, Barbara.

    Veteran actor Danny Aiello, star of ‘Moonstruck’ and 'Do the Right Thing,’ dies in N.J. medical center

    Blue-collar character actor Danny Aiello, a New Jersey resident who made his mark in numerous hit movies such as “Moonstruck” and “Do the Right Thing," has died at the age of 86, his publicist confirmed Friday morning.

    Aiello, an Oscar nominee, was born and raised in New York City and moved to Ramsey in Bergen County in the 1980s with his wife Sandy. The couple lived in the affluent suburb of Saddle River since 1998.

    The actor died Thursday night in a New Jersey medical facility, TMZ reported, citing family members who said he was undergoing treatment for a sudden illness and “suffered an infection related to his treatment.”

    Aiello started his acting career in the early 1970s, when he landed a supporting role in the baseball drama, “Bang the Drum Slowly.” The actor gained prominence when he appeared in “The Godfather: Part II” and in Spike Lee’s famous comedy-drama “Do the Right Thing” in 1989, which earned him an Oscar nomination for his role as a pizza worker.

    In the Godfather sequel, Aiello played the role of Tony Rosato and uttered the memorable line, “Michael Corleone says hello!” before putting a chokehold on a rival mob associate.

    Aiello, whose full name was Daniel Louis Aiello Jr., was born on June 20, 1933 in New York City, according to imdb.com. The database cites 106 credits as an actor, mostly in movie roles but also in some television roles, and six credits as a producer of TV shows and documentaries, including the series “Celebrity Taste Makers” in 2012.

    His most recent stint was working as an executive producer of the 2017 TV movie, “Broken Dreams Blvd."

    Recognizable, if not famous, for his burly build and husky voice, Aiello was an ex-union president who broke into acting in his 30s and remained a dependable player for decades, whether vicious or cuddly or a little of both.

    His breakthrough, ironically, was as the hapless lover dumped by Cher in Norman Jewison's hit comedy "Moonstruck." His disillusion contributed to the laughter, and although he wasn't nominated for a supporting-role Oscar (Cher and Olympia Dukakis won in their categories), Aiello was inundated with movie offers.

    “Living in New York City gave me training for any role,” he said in a 1997 interview. “I’ve seen people killed, knifed. I’ve got scars on my face. I have emotional recall when I work; the idea is simply to recreate it. I’ve seen it and experienced it. I’ve played gangsters, teachers, but most of my work has been in the police area. And for that I’m adored by the police in New York City.”

    In a tweet posted on Friday, Cher mourned the man she called “a genius comedic actor” and described her work with Aiello in “Moonstruck” as ”one of the happiest times in my life."

    Actor Michael Rapaport tweeted that Aiello was a “huge inspiration” and “such a nice guy.”

    Aiello and his wife were married for 65 years.

    The actor is also survived by three children — Rick, Jamie and Stacy — and 10 grandchildren. A fourth son, stuntman and stunt coordinator Danny Aiello III, died in May 2010 of pancreatic cancer.

    ‘Star Trek: Picard’ Renewed for Season 2 at CBS All Access

    Patrick Stewart’s return as Captain Picard isn’t going to be a one-season affair.

    CBS All Access has renewed “Star Trek: Picard” for a second season, over a month before its first season debuts.

    The new show stars Stewart as he reprises his iconic, titular role as Jean-Luc Picard, which he played for seven seasons on “Star Trek: The Next Generation.” Isa Briones, Santiago Cabrera, Michelle Hurd, Alison Pill, Harry Treadaway and Evan Evagora also star. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Secret Hideout and Roddenberry Entertainment.

    Stewart and CBS’s “Star Trek” universe chief Alex Kurtzman executive produce alongside Michael Chabon, Akiva Goldsman, James Duff, Heather Kadin, Rod Roddenberry and Trevor Roth. Aaron Baiers serves as co-executive producer and Kirsten Beyer is a supervising producer.

    Chabon had previously been named as the showrunner back in June, but the prolific author recently set an adaptation of his “Kavalier and Clay” novels at Showtime as part of an overall deal with CBS TV Studios, meaning that he is slated to step away from “Picard” to run that other project sometime in 2020.

    Season 1 of “Picard” will premiere on Jan. 23, 2020. CBS All Access declined to comment.

    News of the renewal became evident when the California Film Commission announced which shows would be receiving tax credits in the upcoming year on Monday morning. A season 2 of “Star Trek: Picard” was on the list alongside four new shows including “Nine Perfect Strangers” starring and executive produced by Nicole Kidman, and the “Untitled Showtime Lakers Project” at HBO which hails from executive producer Adam McKay.

    “Picard” is the latest in a growing line of series that CBS is rolling out to build up its “Star Trek” TV universe. In addition to “Star Trek: Discovery,” which finished airing its second season on All Access back in April, upcoming shows include the animated comedy “Star Trek: Lower Decks” and a Nickelodeon animated series as well. A drama series centered on Michelle Yeoh’s character from “Discovery” is also currently in development at All Access.

    ‘The Getaway’ Producer David Foster Dies At Age 90

    Veteran Hollywood producer David Foster died Monday. He was 90 years old.

    Foster’s career spanned 60 years and he produced such films as McCabe and Mrs. Miller, The Getaway, and John Carpenters’ The Thing. Foster began his career as a publicist representing such talent as Steve McQueen, Peter Sellers, Richard Attenborough, Shirley McClain, Andy Williams, James Coburn, Sonny and Cher and many others. He worked first at Rogers and Cowan, and then as a partner at Allan, Foster Ingersoll and Weber from 1960 to 1968.

    In 1968, at the urging of many of his clients, he became a film producer. He partnered with Mitchell Brower and right out the gate they produced Robert Altman’s classic McCabe And Mrs. Miller, starring Warren Beatty and Julie Christie. He partnered with his close friend, Steve McQueen and Ali McGraw to produce the Sam Peckinpah-directed hit The Getaway.

    In 1974, he formed a company with The Graduate producer Larry Turman. Their first collaboration was The Drowning Pool, which starred Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward, and their 20-year partnership spanned 17 films, including 1977’s Heroes, John Carpenter’s The Thing in 1982, 1986’s Running Scared, 1994’s remake of The Getaway and 1994’s The River Wild.

    Following The Turman Foster Company, Foster continued producing into the 2000’s with such films as 1998’s The Mask Of Zorro, 2002’s Collateral Damage and a remake of The Thing in 2011. In all, Foster produced over 30 movies in his storied career.

    His sons, former IMAX chief Greg and veteran producer Gary Foster, followed him into the business.

    Per his family, David Foster was a no-nonsense man who called it as he saw it. He loved life and his family. He also loved adventure and The Apple Pan. He was an avid USC Trojan fan and could be seen roaming the sidelines during the Pete Carroll years. Born in 1929 in the Bronx, NY, David Foster was the son of immigrants. At the age of 17, his parents moved to California where he lived in both La Jolla and finally settling in Los Angeles. After graduating college, David was drafted into the army and served during the Korean War. Thanks to his journalism degree, he became the head speech writer for General “Iron Mike” Daniels in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

    Foster was married in 1959 to Jackie Pattiz. They celebrated 60 years of marriage this past July. He is survived by Jackie, their sons Gary, Greg and Tim, daughter-in-laws Lisa and Marci and grandchildren Daryn, Drew, Kayla, Jackson and Lucas. Foster was an industry mentor to many and loved sharing his enthusiasm for the business with anyone who would listen.

    David Foster’s funeral will be held at Hillside Memorial Park, January 2, 2020 at 11am. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to The Jewish Home for the Aging, 7150 Tampa Avenue, Reseda, CA, 91335.

    Star Wars: Disney CEO Says Disney+ Shows Could Become Movies


    After issuing a Star Wars slowdown and putting the feature film side of the franchise on carbonite until 2022, Walt Disney Company CEO Bob Iger says television will serve as a big component of Star Wars moving forward through live-action and animated original programming to premiere on the Disney+ streaming service. Already home to the debut season of The Mandalorian, the first live-action series set in a galaxy far, far away, Disney+ is part of Disney’s plans to be “agnostic” with its platforms, says Iger, allowing Disney to convert movies into television — as it will with its Rogue One: A Star Wars Story spinoff — and, conversely, creates potential for television shows to become movies.

    “Yes. I don’t look at it as just television, I look at it as an extension of Star Wars storytelling,” Iger told The Star Wars Show when asked if television is a big part of the Star Wars brand moving forward. “What Disney+ has given us the ability to do is to do just that, is to bring Star Wars to people in new ways, and to bring new Star Wars to people.”

    Iger continued, “It’s not the same places or the same characters. Just look at Mandalorian. While, obviously, there’s a lot shared, there’s a lot that’s really fresh, and I love that.”

    The Jon Favreau-created series most famously introduced the world to its breakout character, colloquially referred to as “Baby Yoda,” as well as a slew of other original fan-favorites, including its titular armored bounty hunter (Pedro Pascal), former Rebel shock trooper Cara Dune (Gina Carano), bounty hunter guild head Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) and Ugnaught Kuiil (Nick Nolte).

    Because the Star Wars galaxy is wide and its library of characters near limitless, The Mandalorian and other Disney+ shows have the potential to transition into feature films.

    “I love the ability to really be agnostic in terms of what platform it’s being made for,” Iger said. “And so it could be, down the road, that a TV show becomes a movie and a movie becomes a TV series. I’m not making any announcements here or not, but I think it’s important for us to be agnostic.”

    Asked what’s next for Star Wars over the next 40 years following the arrival of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the ninth and final entry in the episodic saga started in 1977, Iger notes Lucasfilm will determine what “makes the most sense” for its film slate post-Skywalker.

    “The beauty of all this is that we’ll continue to tell stories between now and whenever the next film is, and while we’re doing that, we will work to find what makes the most sense to be released as a big screen experience,” he said. “And there are a number of choices, there are a number of discussions, there are a number of very talented people, and that to me is very exciting. In the meantime, fans of Star Wars are being well-served, I believe, with The Mandalorian and with what’s to come with the prequel to Rogue One and with Obi-Wan and with Clone Wars.”

    Disney+ is now developing an untitled Rogue One spinoff centered around Diego Luna's Cassian Andor and an Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor as the exiled Jedi.

    Legendary Artist And Designer Syd Mead Dies, Aged 86


    Syd Mead, the widely renowned conceptual artist and "visual futurist", has died at the age of 86. His work informed some of sci-fi's greatest cinematic achievements, including Blade Runner, Tron and Aliens.

    A talented artist from childhood, Mead began his professional career as an industrial designer for the Ford Motor Company in 1960s Detroit. He started his own company in 1970, with clients over the next two decades including Philips, United States Steel, Sony and Honda. His imagination had been fired in early life by the pulp sci-fi magazines to which his father subscribed, but his subsequent work in film was grounded by that eye for the practical and functional. "The logic to doing (science fiction) is it has to look like it works," he told Empire in 2014. "Once you have that, then you can start doing weird stuff with it, but if you don’t have that initial familiarity link then you’ve failed."

    Even as a corporate and industrial artist, his work was extraordinary enough that he was lecturing and exhibiting at one-man shows from the early 1970s. That high profile eventually caught the eye of director Robert Wise, who brought Mead in as a production illustrator to design the V'Ger spacecraft for Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979. He immediately moved on to Tron and Blade Runner, which he worked on concurrently. "Once Ridley Scott found out I could paint... he just let me go," Mead recalled. "I painted my way much further into the film than would normally be the case. I designed all the vehicles, and saw my little wash renderings become real on the Warner Bros. backlot."

    He designed spaceships for Peter Hyams' 2010 ("the G.E. kitchen of tomorrow") and James Cameron's Aliens ("a massive armed freight carrier"); the playback decks for Kathryn Bigelow's Strange Days; and the portable mask kits in the Mission: Impossible movies, among many other extraordinary creations. His most recent credits numbered Neill Blomkamp's Elysium and Brad Bird's Tomorrowland, and his final film work was for Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2049.

    Mead had been suffering from lymphoma for the last three years, and died at home in Pasadena, California on December 30. He had been due to receive the Art Directors Guild’s William Cameron Menzies Award during the Guild’s 24th Annual awards in February.

    "Science fiction," he always said, "is reality ahead of schedule."
