    Out of the two, I believe Carter will go first.

    Clinton's also still alive. I believe she comes before Rice in terms of age.

    Any thoughts on a Shelley Duvall (1949) thread? The actress from the Shining, she's had a history of mental health issues. Seems unlikely she'll live to an advanced age.

    I'm not familiar with him. What's his most famous work?

    David Jason

    In that case, I'm considering legal recourse for emotional distress. Also, perhaps consider going after Hayley next time she creates one of her random threads.

    Not a matter of admiration. I've honestly never seen any of his work nor have I ever watched a single episode of "Only Fools and Horses". I was merely bringing up that many people recognize him as an icon. He's very well known and as Paul bearer said, his work encompasses a number of well known projects outside of "Only Fools and Horses". I think we'll just have to agree to disagree.

    I understand what your saying and completely respect your viewpoint. I think what sometimes gets lost about this site, is that it's more than just a contest. Our fascination with who lives and dies isn't a callous fetish, as much as it is a peculiar means of paying tribute to those who have shaped our world. I'm just a millennial from the States, but David Jason to me is a true legend of comedy and British TV. So often, it feels our heroes are dying off faster than they can be replaced. These giants who we laughed with, grew up with, and changed the way we viewed our world sometimes seemed more like friends and family members than celebrities. So often whenever theirs a big miss on the list, all the idiots come forward and say "why wasn't he/she on the list?' and as pointless as it is, sometimes, there is a feeling that the big Hollywood names crowd out other great candidates who contributed equally to the worlds cultural tapestry. Just because someone isn't known to have age related health issues, doesn't mean they don't exist. Famous people who chose to keep their health battles private will inevitably become misses on this list. All i'm saying is this contest can benefit with considering colorful personalities whose health may not be considered front page news after they have stepped away from public eye. Facepalm me away for making this sentimental comment. Just expressing how I truly feel.

    After conducting an extensive search through the forums, I was surprised to discover that David Jason did not yet have his own thread. Although he doesn't appear to suffer from any known illnesses, I would argue that as one Of Britain's most famous TV actors, the "only Fools and Horses" deserves his own thread. Especially with the recent passing of John Challis, it just appears that his generation is beginning to disappear.

    I dare say, Kissinger might also outlive Frankie Muniz!

    I should have gotten more input before creating this thread. I think my reasoning was that former U.S. Secretary of State, George Schultz had received a thread when he was in his mid eighties.
