That's a real shame, but 88 years is a pretty damn good run. To me, he'll always be Armondo Guitierrez from Freakazoid. Nobody ever made fun of Ricardo Montalban better than Ricardo Montalban.

Ricardo Montalban was the COOLEST.

IMO, one of the more underappreicated actors of our time. Such a long and varied career, from westerns to dramas to comdeies, he did it all. I didn't really watch much of either Fantasy Island or Star Trek II, but I got to see him in plenty of other roles. Loved him in the first Naked Gun movie, also liked his voice acting in shows like Kim Possible and Freakazoid. Even just a year or two ago, with the Family Guy ep. with him as a cow, it amazed me that he was still going strong and that he had such a sense of humor about himself .

Based on the wikipedia article, he not just had a long and sucessful career, he had a great life as well with a long lasting marriage, several children, and accolades from all over. I don't think you can ask for anything more. He will be missed. RIP.

I've hurt you. And I wish to go on hurting you.

One of my favorite ever lines from a movie.

Mr. Roarke, Khan Noonien Singh, Rest in peace.

We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

DiCaprio as TR doesn't work for me. Perfect TR would have been Gene Hackman 20 years ago. Even Tom Hanks 10 years ago when he could do no wrong as an actor would have been pretty good. But DiCaprio? I'll pass.
