Wow.. I certainly didn’t expect to read this today. Comedian and actor Bernie Mac passed away today in Chicago after complications from pneumonia. Although he had previously suffered from a lung condition called sarcoidosis, he had been in remission since 2005, and his death is not believed to have been related. He was only 50 years old.
Although I was never a particularly huge fan of The Bernie Mac Show, I certainly appreciated the charm and personality that Mac brought to his various movie roles. He is probably best known for playing the car salesman in Transformers last year, but I think his most memorable role for me is the head of mall security in Bad Santa. His final on screen performances will be in the upcoming movies Soul Men and Old Dogs. What was your favourite Bernie Mac role?
