Thought he died ages ago to be honest. I'm not the biggest Burton/Depp fan, but Ed Wood is a brilliant film and he fully deserved his Oscar for his role in it.

Yeah was shocked upon hearing about Chester. Not the person I would of said if someone asked me who's next.

One of those bands that helped me get into music as a teenager. Another reminder that mental illness doesn't care about the size of your bank account.

Never knew he was 72, thought he was in his early 60's.

Yeah, I thought the same. Home Alone is nearing 30 years already so he would have been around 45 then.

He deserves better than to be remembered for Home Alone. I don't doubt that it made him a ton of money, but that film is garbage. He did an award winning guest spot on The Sopranos once; that's more like it.

Yeah but unfortunately people tend to remember celebrities for their most famous work and not for their best work.

Aw... damn shame. I guess he hadn't really done much of note for the past thirty years, but he had a really hot streak during the 70s and early 80s. I guess I'll have an excuse to go and watch Lifeforce again, not that I'd really need one.
