At first I thought this was just a rumor but sadly actor-comedian Bernie Mac passed away yesterday. He died of complications from pneumonia at the young age of 50. He was a hilarious comedian and a focused family man. He had two Emmy nominations for his role on The Bernie Mac Show and starred in the concert film The Original Kings Of Comedy. I especially remember his talent from his roles in the Ocean’s films and Charlie’s Angels, among many others. He will be greatly missed and this is a huge loss to the Hollywood community.
“I always want to top myself. I want to get good,” Mac told Time magazine in 2003. “You just don’t know how much I want to get good. I want the audience to leave the theater and say, ‘He did good.’”
