Who will die before the end of the year?
You never know. You might think of the obvious older person, and then someone younger unexpectedly passes away as happened to Carrie Fisher last year.
Tom Petty made me sad.
It's October, OP. A tad late, no?
Use this one. Lots of mileage, still good, used by little bronze age gays on Sundays
You ain't gettin' rid of me that easily, OP!
Remember when Zsa Zsa first got very sick? Then she had her leg amputated and was bed ridden. She was on the death watch list for about three years before she died last Dec 2016 at age 99.
So you never know.
George H.W. Bush has been circling the drain for years.
Look for performers who are of a certain age but don’t have any recent or upcoming credits. It’s been two years since John Mahoney worked and Shelley Morrison is retired and was in a wheelchair for her “Will & Grace” stint last year, so I’m picking those two.
And even though he signed to do the “Toni Erdmann” remake, I’m still convinced Jack Nicholson doesn’t have much longer.
Gotta worry about John Cougar. That man smokes non-stop. Gotta take its toll eventually. And once it does, it all over quick.
If I were Nina Blackwood I'd make an appointment to see the pulmonologist Monday morning. Her voice sounds like a smoking toad. She sounds awful on SIRIUS. Put her on the deathwatch.
Prince Philip is also circling the drain.
^^ As is ex King Juan Carlos of Spain.
Oh [R13] I hadn't heard that King Juan was ill?
Paul McCartney has another 20 years to go. Too healthy. Young wife. Takes care of himself.
George H.W. Bush
Ronnie Wood (Rolling Stones - hoping not)
Agree, Mellencamp looks like he's ready for the oxygen tent - emphysema stage 1.
Queen and/or king
With Robert Guillaume passing, I was surprised that Katherine Helmond and Robert Mandan were still alive and kicking.
Their Soap castmates Richard Mulligan and Cathryn Damon have been long gone.
I honestly thought Robert Guillaume died awhile ago.
Burt Reynolds. Aaron AND Nick Carter. Dick Van Dyke. Zac Efron. Selena Gomez. Justin Bieber, if we're lucky.
[R28] Dick Van Dyke was in very good sprightly form for a man in his nineties when he gave a eulogy at Barbara Sinatras funeral.
Did anyone have Fats Domino as one of their their deathwatch suggestions ?
R14 Juan Carlis is pushing 80 & looks ashen these days. Not a good sign.
It brings me no joy to write this, but Lisa Marie Presley does not look well.
Lisa Marie is a trooper, she's known nothing but drama her whole life, she'll be fine
Jonathan Rhys Meyers
Jonah Hill and/or Seth Rogen
Is Cindy Adams ill [R42]?
Dick Van Dyke is one of those guys who could definitely make 100.
I think Scott Disick is a good candidate. Not for age of course but an OD or traffic accident.
Christie brinkley. I know something.
When is the 2018 prediction speculation /Deadpool thread likely to be started?
Miles Teller in a tragic autofellatio accident.
When is that right-wing asshole Pat Boone going to kick the bucket?
How old is Pat Boone [R49]?! He seems to have looked old and angry forever!
Pat Boone is 83.
Billy Graham is also hanging on at 98.
Mac the Kinfe
Cheers [R51] [R52] There was an article recently published online about Billy Graham in recent weeks by a religious publisher I think in anticipation of his 99th birthday. But the way it was written was almost as a eulogy rather than a living person. I suspect it's known or believed in certain circles that he's likely on his way out sadly before his 100th.
[R21] Keith Richards is pickled, he will never die.
R42 Brendan Coyle stays.
Marion Ross (HAPPY DAYS) celebrated her 89th today.
Since I'm a few hours too late to say Fats Domino, I'll give a shout out to other 50's rock 'n roll legends Little Richard and Jerry Lee Lewis.
Not sure if there's any truth to it, but I've read that Clint Eastwood is not long for this world.
Trump - like Elvis - will drop dead on the toilet while he's rage tweeting.
Is it too much to hope that a certain pussy-grabbing former reality show star will choke on some KFC?
Robyn. Piper Laurie.
i can't believe I'm saying this but Lindsay Lohan.
George Wendt or John Goodman.
Bill & Melinda Gates
R68 - I have been feeling as if Lohan has used up the last if her nine lives.
R70 She doesn't seem well, but then again, she would be the type to survive another fifty years.
Christmas is always a popular time for a celebrity death. I do think prince Philip has one foot in the grave. I’d rather the Queen died though. I’m British so I’d get the day off for the funeral. I’ve ran out of annual leave so I could do with it. Wishful thinking would be a Kardashian. How much more can the word endure ? No chance of Trump dying anytime soon. Satan always looks after his own.
As Corey Feldman is about to expose the Hollywood paedophile ring I’d say he is at risk.
I thought Fats Domino died in the 60's!
yeah, i thought fats domino died years ago...
I think a rock star will croak. many of them are elderly and still touring, i don't think their bodies can handle the stress
I think Prince Philip will hold on until next year.
Oh! R64 speaks the truth to me. It’s the most sensible way to go when you’re a blonde whale on the toilet.
R29 I’ve family that have worked with the elderly. I know from experience ; they may be spry but just about anything can take them out. A cough, a broken bone, a cold. Bed rest leads to pneumonia and bam. Gone.
Brendan Fraser, auto accident, possibly drink / drug driving related.
Eddie Vedder, heart attack or aneurysm.
Now, Morgan Freeman?
Christie Brinkley by absolute stupidity. By Xmas 2018. Probably sooner if you knew what I know. The empay she'll with no soul will just dissipate. Not even purgatory. Her son will secretly celebrate with a big race and lots of molly.
Trump - like Elvis - will drop dead on the toilet while he's rage tweeting.
An iconic epitomising image fit to be captured for posterity.
I worry about Mitch Miller.
Graham is 98? Only the good die young.
Why doesn't that bastard Pat Robertson die? He will do his damage for ever I guess. I wish there was a hell he could go to.
Rose McGowan. Ronan Farrow.
Trump, Bush 1, Barb Bush, judge Thomas, Doug Ducey, the entire Huckabee tribe.
R24, a digression. Many years ago I saw Cathryn Damon as Beatrice in "Gamma ...Marigolds" off-Broadway. Terrific.
R75, me too! RIP.
The empay she'll with no soul will just dissipate.
I have read this three times and I still don't know what it means. What kind of English is it: millennial?
Selina Gomez is young why so many votes?
Lupus and a kidney transplant over the summer, r99.
R98, I think I know! Is it: “The empty shell with no soul will just dissipate.”
I would like to be on Wheel Of Fortune. Who has Pat Sajaks’ number?
Michael J. Fox
R100 - she does seem to have had a bad run of luck, health wise.
The BushClintonObama crime families.
Robert DeNiro has been in such a hysterical frenzy since Trumps election, I wouldnt be surprised if Bob had a heart attack, or stroked out.
Corey Feldman will likely die of a "drug overdose" which will really be murder to shut him up once and for all.
Do we get a wish list? Mine is every Republican in this country but especially DT, Pence, Ryan, McConnell, that Moore guy and that fat ugly woman speaking for DT.
I hate to say it but Sean Connery is up in years as well. He’s 87.
I've stopped counting for 2017, which likely means three people reserved on my list for 2018 will bite it before December 31.
George P. Schultz
How's John Mahoney's health?
Hopefully, those old crones Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi are nearing the end.
Nah Nancy has a way to go, she'll continue to waste resources and have people wiping her ass for years to come, whether she'll be aware that she's alive or not.
I hate the thought of it too [R108] Sean Connery was my first crush and basically how I discovered I was gay. IE getting a massive rise in my pants watching repeats of him as James Bond scantily dressed and being charming and seductive. I think it was when I watched him getting a back massage and then seducing the masseur in Thunderball.
Anyway other names worth consideration for now or whenever a deathlist thread for 2018 is started include
Ken Kercheval Burt Reynolds Gene Hackman Jack Nicholson Vera Miles Jean Kennedy (last of the Kennedy siblings) Doris Day Dorothy Malone Valerie Harper
Can we add Simon Cowell to the list?
If you wish [R115]
Kathy Griffin is on shaky ground lately, she may be an up and comer on this list.
They're little known, but I'm watching "David Copperfield" (1935) tonight and those are the only two cast members alive.
Isn't Ryan O'Neal rumoured to be ill? He pulled out of a stage show in Scotland last month for unspecified health reasons.
With great sadness, Zac Efron. Make-up can no longer cover the raccoon eyes.
After the bloodbath that was 2016, this year has felt very tame. It's almost like NO one good died.
No one bad either. That's quite unfortunate.
I had a dream last night that it was BREAKING NEWS that Dolly Parton died...
I had a dream that the Christmas Moose was hit by a semi in a Western Canadian logging town, and killed.
I just woke up from a dream that my dog died.
But he's been dead for 16 years IRL.
Burt Reynolds could not possibly hold on much longer.
GHWB will predecease DL fave Bar by five years.
The day that Sean Connery goes will be a sorrowful one for me. God save THE 007.
[R135] What health issues is Burt Reynolds suffering from?
Barbara Eden...I saw a photo of her yesterday and got a terrible feeling that she was a goner
Another goddam list I'm off, thank God! Now how 'bout a drink, everyone?
Saw a tweet yesterday that Mike Tyson had a massive heart attack and was in critical condition but then haven't seen any more news about it.
Mike Tyson is a convicted rapist
Sounds like Christie Brinkley is suffering from early onset alzheimers?
Sadly. Sean Connery. Any day now.
Joey Heatherton Connie Francis Sally Struthers
If Barbara Eden goes we can finally stop hearing her anecdote about Desi Arnaz in the 50s--she's certainly gotten a lot of facetime based on that and her shitty Bewitched knockoff series.
Baba Wawa doesn't seem to be in good shape
I'll bet we'll see more rockers go--hard lives and so many of them are in their 70s.
Hopefully, Trump, Pence, and Ryan. They'd be a glorious trifecta for the grim reaper.
r157 Knit, Thérèse, knit.
I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Kirk Douglas's days are numbered.
Tara Reid Ruby Rose
Lainie Kazan, R61??? Lainie is alive and well and 77. I know all that because her girlfriend told me.
R161, but you never know, do you? One can be healthy and kicking, then a sudden stroke can do you in.
