No doubt you have heard of the passing of Alan Rickman. There is little I can add that hasn't been said already by his colleagues from Daniel Radcliffe to Kevin Smith. My favorite Rickman part? Sir Alexander Dane aka Dr. Lazarus in Galaxy Quest. Not that he wasn't always great, but he brought so much of his own experience as a stage actor who made the leap the screen with him in Galaxy Quest.

But you might have missed another actor passing on. Brian Bedford died at the age of 80. Theater aficionados would have known him his appearances at the Stratford Shakespeare Festival. Or his many roles on Broadway, most recently as the aunt in "The Importance of Being Earnest." But I suspect most of you would know him specifically as Robin Hood. Or rather, as the voice of Robin Hood in the beloved Disney animated film from the 70s.

So thus it is a sad day for fans of various versions of the Robin Hood tale. I wonder if anyone made a fanvid splicing together Bedford's Robin and Rickman's Sheriff.
