Actor Bernie Mac passed away earlier today, apparently of pneumonia. He was fifty years old.
To be honest, I wasn’t that familiar with Mac’s work. I loved his performance in Bad Santa as the head of security for a Phoenix department store. If I caught a bit of The Bernie Mac Show, the sitcom he did for FOX, I’d sit down and watch it. I’d forgotten entirely that he was in George Clooney’s Ocean’s movies, but now that I think about it, I’m nodding my head and going, “Oh, yeah.”
And now, he’s gone.
Fifty’s far too young. 🙁
