Why would they be missed?

Their best work is readily available with a few keystrokes on a computer or a few clicks on the TV remote.

When Harrison is dead, I can watch Han Solo whenever I please. It's not as if any of these people are making any great contributions in their old age. When's the last time you saw Jack in a movie? Would it matter if he were already dead? He's not making any new movies. His best stuff can be watched anytime.

Sam Elliot definitely belongs on any such list. Always a scene stealer in spite of few blockbuster leading roles.

Sorry, "missed" him on the list. I do miss Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Robin Williams, Walter Matthau, Jack Lemmon, James Gandolfini and Leonard Nimoy. Sad to know they'll never make another movie.

Sigourney Weaver - how could I forget? Did I?

Losing Robin Williams at a mere 62 was tough.

Not sure Star Trek would have made it without Leonard Nimoy playing Spock so perfectly. I'm a pretty big Trekkie. Still watch TOS - The Original Series at times. Some of the shows were amazingly well done. Others not so much. Gene Roddenberry was one heck of a talent in spite of his foibles.

That was one of the shows where (IMO) everyone was perfect for their role. I am not a William Shatner fan, but I can't imagine anyone else playing Capt. Kirk. I kind of feel the same about TNG as well.

Agreed. They tried very hard to reprise the original characters with the "new" cast - the cast used from 2009 to present day.

Shatner is 87 and always working on "five projects". Seems to have done alright without your approval?

Star Trek captains age well.

Forest Whitaker - one of the more talented actors in my opinion.
