The Day the (Really Deep) Laughter Died

R.I.P. Geoffrey Holder:

Geoffrey Holder, a versatile artist known for his ability as a dancer, actor and — most famously to most of America — a pitchman for 7Up, has died. He was 84.

Some of his more memorable work appears in 1967’s “Doctor Dolittle,” 1982’s “Annie” and 1973’s “Live and Let Die,” in which he faced off against Roger Moore’s James Bond as the villain Baron Samedi.

I don’t like 7-Up – never did, in spite of his commercials – but I’ll probably break out my DVD of Live and Let Die sometime this week.
