Dead Pool 4th August 2013
Welcome my morbid minions to another writing of the Dead Pool. It’s with a heavy heart that I announce that Kang, one of the most feared Klingons in Star Trek history, has died. Also, none of us had him on our lists, which is even more of a travesty! I might even make a whole list of Trek actors next year, they’re all getting on a bit, even Kirk, but I expect he wont die unless he gets a chance to over-act his own death.
Look who you could have had:
- Suzanne Krull, 47, American actress (Nash Bridges, Race to Witch Mountain, Go).
- Eileen Brennan, 80, American Emmy-winning actress (The Last Picture Show, Private Benjamin, Clue), bladder cancer.
- Christian Benítez, 27, Ecuadorian footballer (El Jaish SC, Birmingham City), heart failure.
- Michael Ansara, 91, Syrian-born American actor (Broken Arrow, Star Trek, Batman: The Animated Series).
- John Amis, 91, British broadcaster, classical music critic and writer.

Case closed! Doctors looking for a problem in Dick van Dyke’s brain when he complained of head pain in April, should have been looking in his mouth. The 87-year-old Mary Poppins actor revealed on Twitter that his mystery illness, previously described by his agent as a neurological problem, was actually a side effect from some earlier dental work. “It seems that my titanium dental implants are the cause of my head pounding,” he tweeted. Thank god for that! This world isn’t ready to lose our foremost cockney accent aficionado.
I suppose you’ve all heard that Britain’s most eligible homosexual has managed to get some lass up the duff. Yup, Simon Cowell has got some talent in him. What makes this story slightly worse is that he’s been releasing his X-factor into a married woman! For shame Simon!! He’s released a statement saying that all will be clear in due course and we should be respectful of peoples privacy. Looks like he’s trying to play Simon Says!
