It's being reported that the actor Alan Rickman has passed away at the age of 69. He'll forever be Snape to generations of Potter fans. To people like me, he'll always be Hans Gruber. His IMDB is just a list of wonderful roles; Dogma, Michael Collins, etc... Hell he was even the only thing anyone really remembers from Robin Hood Prince of Thieves.
It's being reported that he lost a short battle with Cancer. Fuck Cancer.
