RIP Joseph Wiseman aka Dr. No!

Just found out he died on Oct. 19 at his home at 91. He was the title badguy from the first Bond movie from 1962! Glad that he lived so long to see how huge the series got for being the first of all of those supervillains.

Actually 91 is a pretty decent ride.

Dr. No is so 1960's-ish.

It's amazing this guy lasted that long, outliving Gert Frobe, Robert Shaw.....even Curt Jurgens from The Spy Who Loved Me.

And you were expecting...what?...from a film made in 1962.
Something 2000s-ish? You have the Daniel Craig Bonds for that. Like that villain in CASINO ROYALE who writes bad checks and loses his clients' money on the stock market. That's the Bond villain you want? Frankly, you can keep them.

I think I speak for Bond fans everywhere when I say I had no idea this guy was still alive.
