r9, the problem with putting down people like Mickey Rooney (or folks like Zsa Zsa or Joan Fontaine or Olivia DeHavilland) is that some death pool scoring is set at 100 minus the dead person's age for each correct guess.%0D %0D So a relatively young person with cancer is really the sweet spot of death pool balloting in this situation.%0D %0D I mean yeah, Mickey Rooney is past his life expectancy but even if he dies he's only worth 9 points. That means it would take 8 Mickey Rooneys to get like one Miley Cyrus.

Kirk Douglas. The death of Michael will push him over the edge.

Richard Dawson went through a period years ago where he wouldn't leave the house, claiming that he looked terrible. Nowadays, he's out doing public appearances. He looked pretty good in 2009 for his age, but he IS 78.

Sadly, I don't think Jim Garner is doing well. He hasn't been seen now in years.

Garner had a stroke in 2008 and is now wheelchair-bound, R35, so you might be right. I hope not, I really like James Garner.

Gene Hackman retired from acting.
James Garner is one of those actors that will really depress me when he dies. I've always liked him.
A lot of TV actors who I watched growing up, like Garner, are getting pretty old.
Dick Van Dyke, Carl Reiner, Rose Marie (Dick Van Dyke Show)
Jack Klugman (The Odd Couple)
Cloris Leachman, Ed Asner, Gavin McLeod, Betty White (Mary Tyler Moore Show)
Conrad Bain, Charlotte Rae (Diff'rent Strokes)
Hal Linden, Abe Vigoda, Barbara Barrie (Barney Miller)
Betty Garrett (Laverne & Shirley)
Marion Ross, Al Molinaro (Happy Days)
Robert Guillaume, Inga Swenson, James Noble (Benson)
Bob Newhart, Bill Daily (Bob Newhart Show)
Ann B. Davis (Brady Bunch)
Also Don Rickles, Doris Day, Anne Meara, Jerry Stiller.

In these types of pools, it's good to look for a younger celebrity with drug problems and suicidal tendencies. And if he/she happens to be morbidly obese, all the better.

Well then, R41, my guess is Chaz Bono. I really do wish Chaz all the best, but he just looks one step closer to death every time we see him.

Me, too. Even though I think he's a Republican. I had such a crush on him when I was a kid. Who was cooler than Jim Rockford?

If you thought he was hot as Jim Rockford, check Garner out as Bret Maverick.

r44, don't you fucking dare besmirch James Garner!
Garner is a strong Democratic Party supporter, contributing over $7,500 to Democrats running for Federal office the past seven years, including Dennis Kucinich (for Congress in 2002), Richard Gephardt, John Kerry, Barbara Boxer, and various Democratic committees and groups. Since 1982 Garner has given at least $29,000 to Federal campaigns, and over $24,000 of that has been to the Democrats.
For his role in the 1985 CBS miniseries Space, the character's party affiliation was changed from a Republican (as in the book) to reflect Garner's personal views. Garner said: "my wife would leave me if I played a Republican".
Prior to the entry of ex-San Francisco Mayor (later U.S. Senator) Dianne Feinstein, there was an effort by Democratic party leaders, led by state Senator Herschel Rosenthal, to persuade James Garner to seek the 1990 Democratic nomination for Governor of California
