    Charlie Murphy, relatively small-time actor and talent has died. Best known for his roles in Night at the Museum, Norbit and a member of the Chappelle show.
    www.imdb.com/name/nm0614151/

    Looking at his filmography it's kind of funny, I know him mostly for Grand Theft Auto San Andreas (voice of Jizzy B)

    Erin Moran, best known as Joanie Cunningham on Happy Days. She was in a few movies many of us know and of course many we do not know.

    Nobody has mentioned Michael Parks. Died May 9, 2017 at age 77. I thought he was pretty amazing.

    Kind of astounding trivia: In 55 years, Chris Cornell is the first artist who sang a James Bond opening titles theme song to die.

    (Technicality: The theme song to From Russia with Love, sung by Matt Munro, plays over the film's end credits not the opening.)
