Lord Richard Attenborough 1923 - 2014 R.I.P.

Richard Attenborough as Lew Moran from Flight Of The Phoenix, 1965.

They always go in 3's, so it seems. First Robin Williams, then Lauren Bacall, and now Lord Richard Attenborough.  He is probably most well known, to people under age 30, for portraying Richard Hammond in the Jurassic Park films.  He has been acting for many many years.  He was also the accomplished director of many great films including A Bridge Too Far, Gandhi, and Chaplin.  He won two Academy Awards for Gandhi.  Richard is survived by his wife of nearly 70 years, Sheila Sim and his younger brother David Attenborough, well known for narrating excellent nature documentaries such as Planet Earth.   He is one of the most accomplished British filmmakers and actors ever.   Richard Attenborough had a long and eventful life.

Film director Colin Trevorrow recently tweeted his own homage from the set of his new film 
Jurassic World.
"In Memoriam."

Kari Byron, Grant Imahara, and Tory Beleci Are Leaving Mysthbusters - Sad News For Fans

Mythbusters has been one of the Discovery Channel's most watched shows since it began 11 years ago on January 23, 2003.  Today Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage announced that co-starts Tory Beleci, Kari Byron and Grant Imahara would be leaving MythBusters. They thanked them for being an important part of the show and explained that the show would be returning its original format with only Jamie and Adam performing experiments and busting the myths. It isn't clear why they will be leaving, if they have been asked to leave or if it's simply a decisions by Discovery Channel to change the format.  It could simply be an effort to reduce production costs in order to keep the show going with Jamie and Adam.  It's possible that contract negotiations went south.  Either way this is sad news to millions of fans and the end of an era for the Discovery Channel.  Tory, Kari, and Grand have proven to be a valuable part of the show. Their charisma and personality have added greatly to Mythbusters. They will be missed.
