Daily Actor/Producer/Director

Unfortunately, today's SAll-Star is also an "In Memoriam" post.

Sydney Pollack passed away at the age of 73, after a 10 month bout with cancer.

Pollack was known for his movies "Tootsie", "Out of Africa" (for which he won two Academy Awards), "The Firm", and "Michael Clayton", as well as many others. His last film was a role in "Made of Honor" (an unfortunate end to his career, just about on par with Raul Julia's last role being M. Bison in "Street Fighter").

Pollack was widely respected by all his peers and he will be missed.
