RIP Michael Gough

Michael Gough, 1917-2011

From /Film comes the sad news that actor Michael Gough has passed away at the age of 94.

Mr. Gough was best known to many (myself included) as the original Alfred in Tim Burton's Batman and its three sequels. He was not only the most consistent aspect of that series but also its best feature. As a rule he improved every film he appeared in by virtue of honouring the film with his presence.

He will be sorely missed.

  1. Just as sad is the news of Nate Dogg passing on the 15th. He brought a smooth R&B presence to some of the best rap songs of the 90's. Is it just a coincidence that Gough and Dogg passed on the same day? I say it was either the same drive-by or a murder suicide.
