November 25, 1920 – January 14, 2009
Ricardo Montalbán passed away yesterday at the age of 88. He had an extensive career but I’ll alway remember him as Khan Noonien Singh. He originated the role in 1967 for the Star Trek episode “Space Seed” and reprised it in 1982 with Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. 
Check him out in action in this short clip from the classic episode, or you can view it in it’s entirety on YouTube courtesy of CBS and the original trailer for the film. His talent and charisma will be missed.

    Khan was easily the best performance from the original series. His power and charisma just oozed through the screen. In any role, Ricardo Montalbán was truly a class act.

    Another great actor passed away yesterday. Patrick McGoohan, star of the Prisoner and Secret Agent before that also died yesterday.

    He was one of my favorites. I highly recommend to anyone who hasn’t had a chance to see it yet, watch the Prisoner. It is one of the most cerebral programs ever to come out of the BBC. AMC is doing a remake of it later this year and you can watch episodes through their website.

  3. I read about this earlier today. What a great movie!
