Omar Sharif--gone at 83
I just saw this on the web. It seems like he has been acting in films forever. He was an actor of iconic roles in Dr. Zhivago and Lawrence of Arabia. He was even good in some Seventies kitsch films too.

Virgil Cane is the name ...

I liked him. Professional cards player too, I think. Classy man, by all accounts, sad to hear he died...

I've been so consumed with tennis, I hadn't heard about this, so thanks for letting us know, Shawn. I've always loved Dr. Zhivago & Lawrence of Arabia, and Sharif was excellent in both.
