Hm.

1 - Donald Trump
2 - Mike Pence
3 - Reince Priebus
4 - Paul Ryan
5 - Mitch McConnell


I figure 2017 owes us, and I remain hopeful.

I think I'd rather be a bystander this year. 2016 sort of stole the fun out of the game for me.

A few years ago I nailed 5 in a row in the death pool I was in among some friends.  It freaked me out and I stopped participating in them.   :uncertain:

i've never been a fan of these lists, but i really want mitch mcconnell gone. i guess he doesn't have to die, but a debilitating stroke could work.

Pence first, then trump and mcconnell and ryan simultaneously.

Remember with Nixon we had to get Agnew out first.

Sadly I think McConnell and Ryan will be with us for a long time.  But I think Trump will go first, probably heart attack when he realizes what his job actually is.  Pence will be taken out by friendly fire.

Well, Trump's walking a fine line with the Russians.  Putin has zero qualms about taking people out.

Robert Osborne (https://www.nytimes.com/2017/03/06/movies/robert-osborne-dead-turner-classic-movies-host.html?_r=0)  :(

He'd been MIA from TCM for over a year. Everyone that they brought in to fill in pales in comparison. He was so perfect at what he did. I've already been missing him, but there was a remote hope he might return.

Sucks about Glenne Headly. (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/glenne-headly-dead-film-tv-actress-dies-at-63-1011839)

I always want to type her name Glenn Headley.

I wasn't expecting Stephen Furst the other day. Then again, I wasn't expecting Doyle last year, either.

This really screws up a Babylon 5 reunion tour, you know?

If The Purge will happen in real life, it will be Donald Trump that will die first or maybe not?  :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'll always think of him first as that guy in Repo Man.

I know, we all saw him in "Alien" before that, but "Repo Man" just cemented him in my head.
Title: Re: 2017 Death Pool
Post by: random axe on September 16, 2017, 09:26:53 AM
Yep.  He was great in a lot of films.  For some reason, I always remember him from Blue Tiger (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Tiger_(film)), which I thought throughout the 90s was extremely underrated. 

I haven't seen it since the 1990s, so I'm not sure I'd still think it was that good, but I'd watch it again.

Post by: mo on September 17, 2017, 12:12:06 PM
I remember being really impressed by him in Paris, Texas, but don't remember a thing about the movie. I watched it on VHS back in the 80's.

He was highly underutilized in the industry.

That one too in addition to Repo Man.  I also really liked him in The Straight Story.

In other news Grant Hart died.  :cry:
