Rest in Peace
WOW, very, very sad. A truly great actor who never really got his due in the movies. I just watched him yesterday playing a judge in He Hate Me. RIP Da Mayor
a great actor and great human being.
Slightly O/T: Since we're so close to Oscar time, do you think Davis and John Vernon will be in this year's "In Memoriam" montage, or will they be in next year's? Sincerely, John Kilduff... I also think Ossie was good in "Do The Right Thing".
Besides Spike Lee's films (Do The Right Thing), he was also great as JFK in Bubba Ho-tep. RIP, Mr. President.
I'm thinkin' with SAND here... RIP, Ossie. You ruled.
Every time I saw Ossie Davis in a film or on television, he always had this aura of wisdom and grace about him whenever he interacted with cast members or whenever he spoke. He always came off as this wise sage you learned from. You could tell from his lines that he didn't simply project the words as the character, you felt that he actually believed them from his heart. That's truly rare in an actor, and Ossie Davis was genuinely one of a kind. RIP, Mr. Davis. You will be sorely missed by all.
I just heard this about 2 hours ago
I hope Ruby Dee is doing OK. It seemed out of the blue, even considering his age.
R.I.P Mr. Davis, I loved you in Bubba Ho-tep
It wasn't too long ago, when I watched on Fox Movie Channel "Fourteen Hours", the 1951 movie that Grace Kelly made her film debut and there was a young Ossie Davis playing a cab driver. RIP, Mr. Davis, you will be missed! Crawdaddy
Wow, very sad. A special screening of Bubba Ho-Tep will be happening tonight.
"Always do the right thing." RIP
He was always my favorite JFK.
Heres to a great man, a legend on and off the screen, to his grace, his intelligence and his wisdom...Truly one of the best. R.I.P. Ossie Davis
I remember him as "The Judge" in The Stand. He projected dignity without half trying. Rest in Peace, Ossie Davis. You were a one in a million!
Rest in Peace Mr. Davis. You were a true inspiration.
I remember him most as the ultra conservative father in Jungle Fever. Not the most likeable character, but a memorable turn nonetheless. RIP. -- H
