    Stephen Furst Dies: ?Animal House?, ?St. Elsewhere? Actor Was 63

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/news...cid=spartandhp

    Actor*Stephen Furst, best known for his performance as the hapless Flounder in Animal House and put-upon rookie doc Eliott Axelrod on St. Elsewhere, died yesterday due to complications from diabetes.

    His death was announced by his sons Nathan and Griffith Furst, who asked that fans ?celebrate *his life by watching one of his movies or use one of his bits to make someone else laugh ? really, really hard.? See their entire statement.

    Furst had a couple of small credits before landing the part of Kent ?Flounder? Dorfman in 1978?s Animal House. He went on to reprise the role in TV?s short-lived Delta House in 1979.
    Guest credits on series like The Jeffersons, Chips and Newhart preceded his second most-memorable role, as Dr. Axelrod on the groundbreaking St. Elsewhere, a performance by turns comic and dramatic as he was forever subjected to the ire of William Daniels? tyrannical Dr. Mark Craig.

    He later played Vir Cotto in the 1994-98 Babylon 5, and was the voice of Booster in TV?s Buzz Lightyear of Star Command, among numerous other roles. He was also a spokesperson for the American Diabetes Association.

    Michael Nyqvist, ?Girl With the Dragon Tattoo? Star, Dies at 56

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/news...cid=spartandhp

    Swedish actor Michael Nyqvist, who starred in the original ?The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo? films alongside Noomi Rapace, died on Tuesday following a battle with lung cancer, his representative confirmed. He was 56.

    ?On behalf of Michael Nyqvist?s representatives and family, it is with deep sadness that I can confirm that our beloved Michael, one of Sweden?s most respected and accomplished actors, has passed away quietly surrounded by family after a year long battle with lung cancer,? said his rep in a statement. ?Michael?s joy and passion were infectious to those who knew and loved him. His charm and charisma were undeniable, and his love for the arts was felt by all who had the pleasure of working with him.?

    Though best known for his role in the Swedish ?The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo? trilogy, Nyqvist also broke into American film. He played the villain alongside Tom Cruise in ?Mission: Impossible ? Ghost Protocol? and starred as Viggo Tarasov in ?John Wick? with Keanu Reeves.

    Nyqvist first garnered international attention as Mikael Blomkvist in ?Millennium,? a six-part television series based on Stieg Larsson?s books following Lisbeth Salander. The series aired on Swedish television in six parts, and was expanded on three theatrically released films in 2009: ?The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,? ?The Girl Who Played With Fire,? and ?The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet?s Nest.?

    The Swedish series? success helped spawn an American film adaptation, which was released in 2011. Daniel Craig took over Nyqvist?s role as Blomkvist, and Rooney Mara starred as Lisbeth Salander.

    Nyqvist found his first big breakthrough in 2000 with Lukas Moodysson?s ?Together.? The dramedy starred Nyqvist as a misguided husband with anger issues, and earned him his first Guldbagge Award nomination for best actor.

    He also appeared in ?Colonia? (2015), starring Emma Watson and Daniel Br?hl, and in Donovan Marsh?s 2017 action-thriller ?Hunter Killer? with Gerard Butler and Gary Oldman.
    His additional Swedish film credits include ?As It Is in Heaven? (2004), ?Suddenly? (2006), ?The Black Pimpernel? (2007), and ?The Guy in the Grave Next Door? (2002), for which Nyqvist won a Guldbagge Award for best actor for his role as Benny the farmer. He also appeared in American films ?Frank and Lola,? ?Disconnect,? and ?Europa Report.?

    Nyqvist was an author as well, publishing autobiographical memoir ?Just After Dreaming? (?N?r barnet lagt sig? in Swedish) in 2010. The novel was a compilation of memories from his childhood, and details his life from his adoption as a baby to tracking down his biological parents at age 30.

    He is survived by his wife, Catharina, and their children, Ellen and Arthur.

    Joan Lee, Wife of Marvel Comics Legend Stan Lee, Dies at 93

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/cele...AOk?li=BBmkt5R

    Joan Lee, the wife of Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee, died Thursday in Los Angeles. She was 93.

    "I can confirm the sad news that Joan Lee passed away this morning quietly and surrounded by her family," a*spokesperson for Stan Lee and his family said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "The family ask that you please give them time to grieve and respect their privacy during this difficult time."

    Joan Lee suffered a stroke earlier in the week and was hospitalized, according to sources.

    The former British hat model and Lee were married on Dec. 5, 1947, and were by all accounts hopelessly devoted to each other. They had two children: J.C. (Joan Celia), who was born in 1950, and Jan, who died three days after her birth in 1953.

    Last year, Lee recounted how he met his wife in a story for The Hollywood Reporter that celebrated his 75th anniversary in comics. After a childhood sweetheart wed another woman, Joan Clayton impulsively married an American soldier during World War II and moved to New York, where she was extremely unhappy. Meanwhile, a cousin of Lee's wanted to set up the struggling writer with a hat model. Lee tells what happened next:
    "When I was young, there was one girl I drew; one body and face and hair. It was my idea of what a girl should be. The perfect woman. And when I got out of the Army, somebody, a cousin of mine, knew a model, a hat model at a place called Laden Hats. He said, 'Stan, there's this really pretty girl named Betty. I think you'd like her. She might like you. Why don't you go over and ask her to lunch.' Blah, blah, blah.

    "So I went up to this place. Betty didn't answer the door. But Joan answered, and she was the head model. I took one look at her - and she was the girl I had been drawing all my life. And then I heard the English accent. And I'm a nut for English accents! She said, 'May I help you?' And I took a look at her, and I think I said something crazy like, 'I love you.' I don't remember exactly. But anyway, I took her to lunch. I never met Betty, the other girl. I think I proposed to [Joan] at lunch."

    In those days, the quickest way to get divorced was to move to Nevada and stay for six weeks to establish residency. Soon after Joan arrived in Reno, Stan received a letter from her addressed to "Jack," and that worried him.
    "Now I'm not the smartest guy in world," recalled Lee. "I know my name isn't 'Jack.' And so why did she write 'Dear*Jack?' Maybe I better go to Reno and see what's going on. I got there and she was waiting for me. And there's three guys with her. They all look like John Wayne. Big Western guys! Rugged! And I get off the plane fresh from New York with my little pork pie hat and a little scarf and my gloves. And she's with me. I thought, 'I don't have a chance.' Luckily, I had a chance."

    A judge granted Joan her divorce and about an hour later, he married her and Lee in a room next door.

    The couple returned to New York, where Lee worked at Marvel Comics forerunner Timely/Atlas Comics, a job he initially landed because his cousin Martin Goodman owned the company. Comics were a middling enterprise until Lee and Jack Kirby co-created The Fantastic Four in 1961 (followed by the Hulk, Avengers, Iron Man, X-Men and other characters) and turned the company, renamed Marvel Comics, into a pop culture powerhouse.

    In some versions of the origin of the Fantastic Four, Lee credits Joan with inspiring him. He was depressed about his career (Lee had dreams of becoming a serious novelist) and the state of comics (the industry in the 1950s was dominated by stories of war, science fiction and romance, genres he didn't like) and contemplated leaving the business.

    "Before you quit," Joan told him, "why don't you write one comic you are proud of?" And thus was born the Fantastic Four.

    In 1981, the Lees moved from New York City to California so Stan could work on developing Marvel TV and film projects. Joan did voice work on two 1990s animated Marvel shows, Fantastic Four (as Miss Forbes) and Spider-Man (as Madame Web). She also made a cameo in 2016's X-Men: Apocalypse. *

    Joan Lee also wrote a 1987 novel, The Pleasure Palace, about a man striving to build the most luxurious ocean liner ever while romancing several women at once. According to her daughter, she had three more unpublished but finished novels at home).

    Martin Landau, Oscar winner for 'Ed Wood,' dies at 89

    http://www.msn.com/en-us/movies/cele...cid=spartandhp

    Oscar-winning actor Martin Landau, most closely associated with scene-stealing character turns in such films as ?North by Northwest,? ?Crimes and Misdemeanors? and ?Ed Wood? as well as the classic TV series ?Mission: Impossible,? died Saturday in Los Angeles, according to his publicist. He had been hospitalized at UCLA where he experienced complications. He was 89.

    The lanky, offbeat-looking veteran of the Actors Studio, for he which he was currently West Coast co-artistic director, had many ups and downs in his career. *His greatest successes (three Oscar nominations and one win) came later in life when he returned to character roles like the one that first won him notice, as James Mason?s sinister gay henchman in Alfred Hitchcock?s ?North by Northwest.?

    He was Emmy-nominated five times, and most of his leading man roles came on television, most notably as Rollin Hand, a master of disguise on ?Mission: Impossible.? He later spent a couple of years starring in syndicated sci-fi series ?Space: 1999,? on which, as with ?Mission: Impossible,? he co-starred with then-wife Barbara Bain.

    After a dry spell, his career roared back to life in the late 1980s when Francis Ford Coppola cast him in ?Tucker: The Man and His Dream,? which brought Landau the first of three supporting noms. It was, he reminded one journalist, the first time this ?Jewish kid from Brooklyn? took a role that called for him to play Jewish.

    An even more impressive turn as a successful Jewish ophthalmologist haunted by a secret in Woody Allen?s drama ?Crimes and Misdemeanors? brought him an Oscar nomination for the second year in a row.
    In 1994 came the part of a lifetime for a character actor, the dying, once-famous screen ghoul Bela Lugosi, in Tim Burton?s whacked-out ?Ed Wood.? Landau won the supporting actor Oscar.

    Landau made his first bigscreen impression in Alfred Hitchcock?s action suspenser ?North by Northwest,? playing the villain who does Mason?s dirty work. The role led to a major supporting role in the epic ?Cleopatra,? on which Landau spent a year, only to find most of his role as General Rufio on the cutting-room floor. ?What could I do?? he later lamented. ?They couldn?t cut Richard Burton or Elizabeth Taylor.?
    During the 1960s he had character roles in ?The Greatest Story Ever Told,? ?Nevada Smith? and ?The Hallelujah Trail.?

    Landau had been doing television work since the 1950s but got busy in TV in the mid-?60s, with several guest appearances on sci-fier ?The Outer Limits? and spy skein ?The Man From U.N.C.L.E.? He was producer Gene Roddenberry?s first choice for the role of Spock on ?Star Trek,? but the role wound up going to Leonard Nimoy after Landau opted for ?Mission: Impossible.? (Nimoy would later take a recurring role on ?Mission: Impossible.?)
    On the enormously successful ?Mission: Impossible,? Landau and Bain played well off one another and with the rest of the regular ensemble, which included Peter Graves. Landau stayed with the series for three years, through 1969, drawing Emmy nominations three years in a row. He said his reason for leaving (and Bain?s as well) was artistic differences over the general direction of the show, though others claim salary demands were the real problem.

    However, roles in ?A Town Called Hell,? ?Operation Snafu? and another villain role in ?They Call Me Mister Tibbs? didn?t result in major acclaim.

    Television came to the rescue again with the two-year run of ?Space: 1999? in the mid-?70s. Numerous TV movie turns reached a nadir with ?The Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan?s Island? in 1981.
    He and Bain divorced, and Landau spent the ?80s in roles in mostly obscure films. He also worked as an acting teacher.

    After the successes of ?Tucker,? ?Crimes and Misdemeanors? and ?Ed Wood,? Landau had a steady stream of mostly supporting work on the bigscreen from the mid-?90s through the late 2000s.

    He brought poignancy to his role as a judge in ?City Hall? and played Gepetto in ?The Adventures of Pinocchio.? He contributed a memorable turn to ?The X-Files? movie in 1998, worked for Burton again in ?Sleepy Hollow? and took roles in ?Rounders,? ?The Majestic? and ?Hollywood Homicide.?

    He had a series of roles in small films including 2006?s ?David and Fatima? and starred in 2008?s ?Harrison Montgomery.?

    There was also higher-profile work: Landau starred with Judy Parfitt in 2004 Holocaust drama ?The Aryan Couple.? He also had a role in ?City of Ember? and did voicework for the 2009 animated feature ?9? and 2012?s ?Frankenweenie.?

    Landau provided voices for the 1997 Oscar-winning documentary ?The Long Way Home? and appeared as himself in the docus ?Off the Menu: The Last Days of Chasen?s,? ?Cannes: Through the Eyes of the Hunter? and ?Broadway: The Golden Age, by the Legends Who Were There? (2003) as well as a 2011 ?American Masters? documentary on Woody Allen.

    He kept his hand in on the smallscreen as well, starring in the miniseries ?Bonanno: A Godfather?s Story? and appearing as a series regular on the brief ABC series ?The Evidence.? He recurring notably on ?Without a Trace? as Anthony LaPaglia?s father with Alzheimer?s and on ?Entourage? as a washed-up producer, drawing Emmy nominations in 2004 and 2005 for the former and in 2007 for the latter. Most recently he appeared in ?The Last Poker Game? with Paul Sorvino, which screened at the Tribeca Film Festival, and in ?Remember? for director Atom Egoyan.

    Also in the 2000s, Landau worked as an acting coach in a venture with director Mark Rydell and screenwriter-playwriter Lyle Kessler.

    The Brooklynite started out as a cartoonist, spending four years with the New York Daily News from 1948-51, then turned his attentions to acting. He claimed that he and Steve McQueen were the only two among 2,000 applicants whose auditions gained them admittance to the Actors Studio (of which Landau later became an officer).

    Landau did some stage work, most notably touring with the Paddy Chayefsky play ?Middle of the Night? in 1956-57. He married one of the understudies, Bain, whom he met in Curt Conway?s acting classes.
    His film debut came in a small role in ?Pork Chop Hill? in 1959, followed by a larger role in ?The Gazebo.? Then he drew attention for his role in ?North by Northwest.?

    He is survived by two daughters, writer-producer-casting director Susan Landau Finch and thesp Juliet Landau of ?Buffy the Vampire Slayer? fame, a sister and a granddaughter.
