Sad to hear, right after the passing of one of my idols Leonard Cohen. Just recently I was watching re-runs from "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." in one show featured Sonny and Cher and was very amusing.
Thanks Napoleon.

Awesome actor, I loved his role in Superman 3 when he said to Richard Prior: "I ask you to kill superman for me, and you're telling me you can't even do that one simple thing... pftt"..

He will be missed.

Robert Vaughn played many, many great roles.

Funny thing is, I can't help thinking about him without remembering one particular movie he was in. It was a low-budget, T/A, B-movie called Witch Academy. He played the Devil trying to trick this virtuous, mousy girl into marrying him. Typical B-movie stuff. But he played his part very professionally.

That always impressed me. Me? I'd be happy just to be in a stupid movie where I get to see lots of T/A. But if you watch the bloopers at the end of the movie (yes, I have it on DVD) you can see that he took the job very seriously. A lot more seriously than I would have taken the job in his place, talent or no.

Robert Vaughn was very passionate about his craft. He would try to give an Oscar worthy performance in any role he played.
