Hello World!

This is turning into a really sad week. First Caroll O'Connor passes away, which was already a huge loss. Then this morning, probably my favourite actor ever also died: Jack Lemmon, well-known from films such as 'The Apartment' and 'Irma La Douce.'

His most famous roles are already three to four decades behind us, but since there has never been an actor so good at portraying just a regular Everyman, and I don't think anyone will ever be able to forget that slightly surprised, bemused look he always had on his face. Whether teamed with director Billy Wilder or with fellow actor Walter Matthau, his performance was always fantastic - he kept working until almost the very end, so it's a great pity we now won't be seeing anything more from him. He'll certainly be missed.

For Lemmon's full biography, please visit his IMDB page, or read this AP story on his passing.
