'Prisoner' actor Patrick McGoohan dies in LA
Jan 14th, 2009 | LOS ANGELES -- Patrick McGoohan, an Emmy-winning actor who created and starred in the cult classic television show "The Prisoner," has died. He was 80.

McGoohan died Tuesday in Los Angeles after a short illness, his son-in-law, film producer Cleve Landsberg, said Wednesday.

McGoohan won two Emmys for his work on the Peter Falk detective drama "Columbo," and more recently appeared as King Edward Longshanks in the 1995 Mel Gibson film "Braveheart."

But he was best known as the title character Number Six in "The Prisoner," a surreal 1960s British series in which a former spy is held captive in a small village and constantly tries to escape.

I'll miss you, you crazy-ass misogynist fucker.

Misogynist? What'd he do?

He had a reputation for abusing his female co-stars.

Well, that takes some of the glow off my warm feelings for The Three Lives of Thomasina. On the other hand, KITTIES!

The funeral cortege will be led by a large weather balloon-lookin' blob.

And a small, ragtag brass band.

Alas, another talent leaves this plane of existence (talent, yes, in spite of his personality). I expect he'll be joining the Shakespear in the Round troupe in the Elysian Fields. It's THE in after-life-theatre this millenium.

No, really.

And I've already slapped myself for mis-spelling "Shakespeare"

*sigh*
