Not Awesome: Richard Attenborough Has Died

Richard Attenborough

A screen legend has passed. Richard Attenborough, actor since 1942, died today just a few days short of his 91st birthday. Best known to many (well, 90s kids like me) as the billionaire who created dinosaurs in _Jurassic Park_ Attenborough had a prolific career spanning 60+ years. He had memorable roles in _The Great Escape_, _Brighton Rock_, and the remake _Miracle on 34th St_ as well as directing Robert Downey Jr. in _Chaplin_ and Ben Kingsley in _Gandhi_, the latter of which won him the Oscar for Best Picture and Best Director.

Truly one of the greats. He will be greatly missed and our thoughts are with his family and friends.
