Who's next? We all know the urban myth that movie stars/famous people die in 3s. Odd thing is, it seems to be not so much urban myth as truth. Every time a famous person dies, 2 more are soon to follow. Now, I don't know if it's just the fact that we're looking for it and will connect any 3 who die, even if they're a star from the 50s and haven't been heard from in decades or if there's some kind of Hollywood voodoo going on, but there's one more to go and I hope it's not one of my favorites. Alan Alda is getting on up there and Clint Eastwood is in his 80s.
Who do you think is scheduled to meet the Reaper?

David Bowie was about a zillion times more famous than this actor was.
Why didnt you start your post with him dying?

Additionally I see exactly 0% supernatural about people dying as roughly 150000 people die every day around the world.

I would put Lemmy ahead of this guy, what with him being a musician and somebody I actually heard of.

The whole point was not which order or how famous they were, but that 3 famous people/actors die close together. Now that I think of it, this guy is the 3rd. Lemmy, Bowie and now him. That's 3.

Again roughly 150000 people die daily around the planet so why is it noting that 3 people over 60 died?
Im sure i can very easily find other famous people that have died in the past week , like the ones listed here: www.tmz.com...

People that want to see patterns in something will see patterns in everything.

Have you never heard of the "famous people die in 3" myth?
And that's not what I'd call famous.

Celebrities, just like us normal folk, can and do die. There's just more hubbub about it. For example, going by the information on CNN, in 2015 we lost the following:

83 Celebrities, actors, and directors.
30 Musicians.
29 Leaders, politicians, and military figures.
24 Journalists, authors, media, and academic figures.
38 Sport, design, and business figures.

That's a total of 204 "famous" people. That's an average of one every two or three days.

Going by the page CNN has set up for 2016 there have already been eight deaths of "famous" people.

Edit to add:

And if you look at the Wikipedia page for 2015 deaths, it's easier to count the days a "famous" person did not die. For example, there were only seven days in January 2015 where a "famous" person did not die.
