"Oh my god - the quarterback is TOAST!" RIP Clarence Gilyard Jr., who in Die Hard gave us the archetypal wisecracking computer-hacker baddie. Sounds like he had a rich full life away from the screen, too..

I admit to being morbid. I check the Wikipedia Death Index every day without fail if I'm online. I also look back a few days to see who I might have missed . . .
CLIFF EMMICH died Nov. 28 at age 85 of lung cancer at his home in Valley Village in Los Angeles. He would've been 86 on Dec. 13th.
He was a heavyset actor who never 'thinned out' so his appearance stayed the same over the years. I saw him in various movies and TV shows.
Michael Myers gave Cliff a lethal hammer to the head in Halloween II. Emmich played 'Mr. Garrett,' the hospital's security guard, who checks out some storage areas where the locks are busted. And he runs in to Michael M. Uh-oh.
I am still freaked out by Ann Heche’s death.
