Wow. You beat me to it. This is as close as you get to saying that the father of Rock and Roll just died.

If you don't know the name Denny O'Neil, it's because you aren't a comic reader. He was part of the innovative new wave of writers from the late 60's and early 70's. He modernized Batman and created the Green Lantern/Green Arrow team. He died last at the age of 81.

Yes, I know.
I never heard the radio play, but I have seen "The Lord of the Rings", and a few other of Sir Ian Holm's films. Bilbo Baggins is one that stands out as the most recent role.

Farewell to a great writer and performer. Anybody who doesn't know his work here he is in 1960 as The Reporter interviewing Mel Brooks as The 2,000 Year Old Man.

I hope you don't mind, but I felt that needed a slight correction. A huge loss but a stunning back catalogue of over 500 film scores.

I want to believe that he was just shutting down so his consciousness could boot up in an R2D2 unit somewhere, or because he has decided to log out of our current instance of the Matrix.
