RIP Christopher Lee

Christopher Lee Demotivational by will-o-the-wispy
Brother, you ain't peddlin' vacuum...
Ladies and gentlemen, bow your heads and doff your hats, for we have lost a legend:
Actor Sir Christopher Lee, best known for playing villain characters, has died. He was 93.

The legendary actor passed away at a London hospital on Sunday after he had been hospitalized for three weeks due to respiratory problems and heart failure, the Telegraph has confirmed.

His wife, who he had been married to for 50 years, waited to release the news of his death so family members could know first.

His career got started in the late 1940s, and he landed what would be one of his most well-known roles in 1958, when he was Dracula.

Later on he would play Lord Summerisle in “The Wicker Man,” and Saruman in the Lord of the Rings franchise. He’s known for his roles in “The Man with the Golden Gun” and the “Star Wars” prequel.
I... I don't know what to say.

I can't believe he's gone. I half-expected him to live on forever, as a reminder to the rest of us that God does, in fact, care enough to send us the occasional epic badass. Sort of like Lemmy, from MOTORHEAD.

In memory of this one man's absolutely amazing life and career, here is a woefully inadequate selection of some of his finest moments- he had so damn many of them, it's actually difficult to pick just 5:

Clear skies, Count Dooku Saruman the White Dracula Lord Summerisle Charlemagne Sir Christopher Lee. You will be greatly missed by a world that is terribly diminished by your passing.
