Paul Scofield, aka, the Man for All Seasons, has passed away, of leukemia, at age 86. Scofield was a great actor and, like Max Von Sydow, had the virtue (if you can call it that) of looking old while still young, so that he seemed the same age from the 1960s right through the turn of the century.

I had the pleasure of seeing him on the London Stage in 1986, in a West End production of I’m Not Rappaport.
