    The Dead of 2019

    I see your point, but it's not front page news. Jeffrey Epstein's arrest seems to be getting a lot more attention that Cameron Boyce's death. I would think that the sudden tragic death of a popular Disney teen idol would garner more headline news, but again, Epstein's arrest seems to be the focus of most mainstream media. I would acknowledge that if Boyce died of either a suicide or drug overdose or was murdered, than his death would be rippling across the media. His death was due to natural causes (epileptic seizures) so there was no scandal surrounding his death. That's why it was not the lead news. I would think for example that TMZ (considered the gold standard of celebrity gossip and news) would be all over covering his death, but nothing from them.

    The Dead of 2019

    Disney teen idol Cameron Boyce dead at just 20 years ago. Star of several Disney franchises including Jessie and The Descendants. https://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/disney-channel-star-cameron-boyce-dies-20/story?id=64174031 I'm shocked at the relatively lack of mainstream media coverage of his death. You would think that given his very young age, and that he is quite popular with teenagers and kids, that they would be more news covering his death. Instead, it barely made a blip on the radar. Not even TMZ covered his death. And TMZ has given media coverage to deaths of relatively obscure people who just happened to have their 15 minutes of fame on garbage reality TV shows. Hell, TMZ has given friggin' media coverage to RELATIVES of reality TV personalities, yet ignores the sudden death of Cameron Boyce? One possibility why Cameron Boyce's death is not making national news is that he didn't die of a drug overdose or suicide. He simply died of "natural causes" due to a seizure and apparently has had medical issues lately but the family wouldn't elaborate. So there is nothing scandalous about the way he died.

    The Dead of 2019

    Character actor Billy Drago, best known for playing slimy villains in many movies and television shows, has died of a stroke at the age of 73: https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/people/2019/06/27/billy-drago-the-untouchables-actor-dead-73/1581273001/ He is probably best remembered for playing the Mafia enforcer Frank Nitti in The Untouchables. He was also the main villain in Delta Force 2: The Colombian Connection as well as Papa Jupiter, the head of the cannibal family in The Hills Have Eyes.

    Actress Peggy Lipton, of The Mod Squad and Twin Peaks fame, has died of cancer at the age of 72. Pretty big loss for the entertainment community. Always enjoyed her work. https://www.cnn.com/2019/05/12/us/peggy-lipton-dies-of-cancer/index.html

    The Dead of 2019

    Fairly big news out in the States. Film director John Singleton was taken off life support today and has untimely passed away at the age of 51. Singleton is best known for directing the gritty urban drama Boyz n the Hood as well as the action thriller Four Brothers. https://www.tmz.com/2019/04/29/boyz-n-the-hood-director-john-singleton-dead-coma-massive-stroke-dies/#disqus_thread

    The Dead of 2019

    I agree with everybody's sentiments here. Seems that this year has been unusually slow in terms of celebrity deaths. Only real big names I can think of this year who have passed away are Luke Perry, Carol Channing, and Albert Finney. I guess Nipsey Hustle would be this year's shocking celebrity death, though he's not really well known outside of hip hop circles. Celebrity deaths though tend to go in cycles. Remember we had a lot of big names who passed away from 2016 to 2018, so 2019 is bound to be a slow year. It's possible that we could seeing a deluge of celebrity deaths coming our way though in the forthcoming months. Or 2019 will just be a slow year overall. Last time we had a real lukewarm year for celebrity deaths was probably 2000...or maybe 2007.

    The Dead of 2019

    It does seem like 2019 has been a fairly slow year in terms of celebrity deaths...so far. But you never know. In America, the biggest celebrity deaths this year are...Luke Perry and Carol Channing. But let's not forget 2016 to 2018 have been very brutal years in terms of celebrities dying so we are bound to get a slow year. Celebrity deaths tend to go in cycles. We would have a year or two when we get a lot of celebrity deaths, and the following year, the Grim Reaper decides not to take as many of our beloved celebrities. For example, 2008 and 2009 we lost a ton of celebrities, but 2010 was kinda slow to my collection. From 1997 to 1999, we lost a ton of celebrities as well, many of them way too young (including Princess Diana), but 2000 was a lukewarm year for celebrity deaths. So it all depends.

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2020

    Keep an eye out on this one... Actor and comedian Sam Lloyd, best known for appearing in Scrubs (a very famous television sitcom out here in the States), has been diagnosed with metastatic lung cancer, which has spread to his liver, spine, and jaw bone... Stick a fork in him, he's done. probably doesn't have a lot of time here left on this planet... https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/scrubs-actor-sam-lloyd-given-devastating-cancer-diagnosis-200754730.html

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2019

    I predict 2018 will be a rather slow year for celebrity deaths. And so far, really only two marquee names have passed away this year: Dolores O'Riordan and Billy Graham. Besides those two, not really any real big names who passed away. Aren't too many celebrities right now that appear to be gravely ill, but Kirk Douglas is 101 years old and looks absolutely terrible. He will likely pass away soon. I also think Robert Wagner will croak before he faces any justice for the death of Natalie Wood.

    While I don't think Rick Ross is gonna make it, quite a few celebrities had very close brushes with death but survived. Bret Michaels Lamar Odom Lil Wayne Kevin Smith So it's possible Rick Ross will pull through. Doubt it though. dude's a goner.

    I don't think Rick Ross will make it. At best, he'll end up in a vegetative state.

    Thoughts On The 2017 List

    Pretty decent list. Seems that all the "big" names have already bit the dust. My prediction is that the three "big" celebrity deaths in 2017 will be Bill Cosby, Burt Reynolds, and Val Kilmer. All of them are frail and in bad shape. Of course, i made the same prediction as last year...
  15. BCAlum2000

    Ideas And Possibilities For 2017

    Three big names I predict will croak w/n a year... Bill Cosby (he's going blind now, plus the stress of his legal woes will do him in) Burt Reynolds (looks absolutely TERRIBLE) Val Kilmer (has terminal throat cancer) I also predict that a major young celebrity who's hot w/ the teen and tween crowd right now will die an unexpected death, most likely from drug overdose or suicide b/c of depression. 2015, we didn't really have any major celebrities die young (unless you count Stuart Scott, Beau Biden, and Scott Weiland and they're really more semi-famous than anything, and no, I don't really consider Bobbi Christina Brown to be famous b/c she had no notable fame other than being the daughter of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown), but we've lost young celebrities every other year.
