Dammit, Christopher Lee Died

Legendary actor Christopher Lee has died after being hospitalized for heart failure. He was 93 years old, yet was still starring in films and cranking out metal songs because he was that goddamn awesome. I’m guessing some of you are old enough to remember him as Francisco Scaramanga, The Man With The Golden Gun – and even further back, the definitive version of Dracula – while most of you probably know him as Saruman from The Lord of The Rings. However, if someone tries to tell you Christopher Lee played some sort of Count Dooku in something called the Star Wars prequels, you should spit at that person’s feet for telling vicious lies about a dead man because I just made all of that up. It never happened.

Rest in Peace, Sir Christopher.
