Ideas and possibilities for 2023

Recommended Posts

Alain Delon is also a very big must for the 2023 DL. Not only because of much speculation suggesting he has wanted to end his life for years but also because basically every other French male actor and director from his era is now dead. And what a big miss Delon would be...

I couldn’t agree more; Jones is a must for the 2023 DL. And if the DL would like to include another old male Hollywood name next year, may I suggest Robert Wagner? A cinema icon from the 1950s onwards, he would be too big to miss (like Jones) and I see him going at 93 for some reason. And for a third male Hollywood type, Jack Nicholson wouldn’t be a bad 2023 DL inclusion.

 

On female Hollywood types, Joanne Woodward must return and Eva Marie Saint and Glynis Johns must be introduced on the 2023 DL. If room, maybe Lee Grant as well...

Can't have a hit with every famous person

 

I'd say you'd be lucky to have 2 from all those names. Jack Nicholson and Joanne Woodward are my guesses

Done. Added Jane Fonda, too.

 

Not going to add Glynis Johns, because while I think she should be on the DL, whether she will is another matter.

I had to Google Rosey Grier and I am none the wiser

 

May be too US centric for the DL

True, that was the one that I think is the least DL-y, but he had a successful American Football Career and, following that, worked as a bodyguard for RFK, present at the assassination, and was the subduer of Sirhan Sirhan. I think that he meets the fame criteria, albeit only just.

I knew who he is, but only because I came across a mention of him somewhere a year or two ago (not on this forum) and looked him up because he sounded interesting.

Not least because of his sewing activities!  https://www.maharam.com/stories/boyer_dual-threat-the-needlepoint-of-rosey-grier

Bertrand Cantat, singer of Noir Désir (french well known group) who murdered his mistress and actress Marie Trintignant (daughter of Jean Louis) in 2003 might be someone to keep an eye on : alcoholic, drug addict etc… 

 

edit : don’t know if you’ve ever heard about Marie Trintignant’s death but it’s a sad story of domestic violence, it’s a big part of french « culture » and is still often talked about in news 

 

edit 2 : just found out that his first wife Kristina Rady (whom he cheated on with Marie Trintignant) died in 2010 from suicide apparently. There is doubt though cause prior to her death, she told everyone around her that Cantat was violent with her since his release from prison…

Carl Douglas does seem to be a little bit reclusive. He's the guy who sang "EVERYBODY WAS KUNG FU FIGHTIIIIIIIIIIIING" and he hasn't really been seen in public recently. He did an interview recently, but I didn't see his face in there. He's 80 years old. His most recent statement:

“I feel blessed to have reached this milestone and wish everybody good health and happiness.“

Anyway I hope he's doing okay. He's a great singer.

French icon Anouk Aimée, Who starred in La Dolce Vita, Un Homme et une Femme and Lola (amongst others) turned 90 this year. Maybe one to consider. The equivalent of Claudia Cardinale Who will also deserve consideration soon imo

French icon, Yvonne Furneaux, who also starred in La Dolce Vita, turned 96 this year. Definitely one to consider.

Keeping Loretta Lynn, Akihito, Scales and Joss Ackland over Noam Chomsky, Milan Kundera, Faithfull and Bucharach ? Hum… choices !


Also, agree with your returnees but instead of Musharraf and Redgrave I would have prefered Nigel Lawson and Tina Turner 

 

for the newcomers, I love your suggestions but I think there is better picks (and frailer) than Farnham, Watson, Spencer and Plowright. Nicholson is a good addition but I think he has a few more years to live 

 

anyway all this is my own opinion :)

French icon, Leslie Caron, who starred in An American in Paris, Father Goose, Gigi (amongst others) turned 91 this year, so another one to consider!

Cecilia Suyat Marshall is still alive at 94. US civil rights activist, widow of Thurgood Marshall (1908-1993), first black US supreme court justice 1967-1991. She already looked quite frail six years ago (video from July 2016):

Minor correction: he served until 1991; it's why his replacement was Clarence Thomas. Had he clung to the seat till his death in 1993, his replacement would have been a more competent person.

For what its  worth I thought it was worth mentioning that the wife of Lee Majors hasn't posted a picture on her Instagram that features her famous husband since May last year.. Her habit prior to this was to post current pictures of him quite frequently.There could be many explanations for this but I felt it worth mentioning to deadpoolers.

So, here's one to test the limitations of the various dead pool rules. 41 year old Emma Fisher, terminally ill but just chosen by Adidas as the face of a campaign promoting a clothing range from which some profits will fund cancer research. Clearly FFBI but also clearly doing a job and young enough to be a high score in the DDP. 

 

Just thought I'd - like - kick off the debate, or summat - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-south-yorkshire-63095279

With all the mysterious rumours about Putin’s ill health, he is probably bound to make the 2023 DL. Eva Marie Saint is also another very likely 2023 DL newcomer.

 

A few more likely returnees for the 2023 DL (even though I do not necessarily agree with them) are Imelda Marcos, Raul Castro, Louis Farrakhan and Betty Boothroyd.
