Ouch this one hurts. Awesome Bond villain, best PD Captain in TV's "Homicide: Life on the Street", but apart of a great film ensemble in 1979 classic ALIEN. Castmate John Hurt and Harry Dean Stanton died 9 months apart in 2017, now Ian Holm died 9 months apart from Kotto in 2020/2021. -RIP ...Cast picMonday, March 15, 10:46:58pm
That is a big one - sorry to hear. Made some wonderful movies. (NT)You knew you would see good acting if he was in a production.Tuesday, March 16, 06:43:38am
FUN FACT: Kotto turned down the role of 'Lando Calrissian' in "Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back" (1980), fearing that Lando would be killed in the movie, and that he would be forever typecast. (NT)The role went to Billy Dee Williams.Saturday, March 27, 01:17:33am
