Not a good month for rock musicians. Joe Cocker has died:

Voice actor Christine Cavanaugh. Way, way too young.

I was a big fan of The Critic.

Godspeed, Edward Herrmann. I adored you as Richard Gilmore.

I love, love, love The Critic so I was very sad to hear about Christine Cavanaugh.

For Edward Hermann, he was on so many episodes of Law & Order plus he was Beecher's dad in Oz!

Herman was always the narrator of History Channel docs and Steve Forbes doppelganger for me.

Edward Herrmann, oh no. I had no idea he was ill. I first knew him as FDR in the 80's version of Annie which was a film I adored as a kid so after that he became the Hey It's That Guy in films that I'd point out and nobody knew what I was talking about because they hadn't committed the film or the credits to memory in the same way as I had.

Noooooo!!!!!!! I loved him as Grandpa Gilmore! Nooooooo!!!!!!! I was just telling my sis a few days ago that he was FDR in Annie. I'm so sad, but I hope he's safe and sound and happy wherever he now is.

Like Corvus, I best remember him from Lost Boys. And as FDR, though not from Annie, but from the series of TV films he did with Jane Alexander.

This is exactly me. Man, so soon after Geoffrey Holder too.

I'm also really sad about Christine Cavanaugh -- she was adorable/hilarious in her small role on X-Files (as Amanda Nelligan in Small Potatoes, a Star Wars obsessive who thought she'd been impregnated by Luke Skywalker. She did not mention that initially, just that he was from space, hence Mulder's interest). I think it was only after that episode that I realized she was also the voice of Babe.

Same here. I remember first seeing him in The North Avenue Irregulars, one of Disney's mediocre live-action entries into the 1970s film market. Something about him stood out, though, and I always recognized him afterwards, whether it was in Annie or Oz. I'll miss the unexpected delight of seeing him pop up in various roles as I watch TV.

A month or so ago when I started watching Gilmore Girls on Netflix, I was under the impression that Edward Herrmann had already passed away. For some reason, I remembered reading that a little while ago, but obviously I was mistaken. It was such a relief to find out he was still with us, since I always liked him, especially in The Lost Boys. This is really upsetting to me, as well as a kind of weird, unpleasant coincidence. RIP, Mr. Herrmann.

Stuart Scott, sports anchor, at 49. He covered a lot of sports I don't even like, but I always enjoyed watching him. He had a real presence a ton of talking sports head would kill for.

Nooooo. I first knew him as a talking head on VH1's "I Love the 80s", and I thought he (and Rich Eisen) were fucking hilarious. He was charming and knowledgeable and open when talking about his sickness.

Also, Grandpa Gilmore? This is very, very sad.

Edward Herrman makes me very sad as well.

Rich Eisen's tribute to Stuart Scott was extremely touching.

I heard him speak at UNC's commencement ceremony many years ago, and I was impressed by his easy going, funny speech.  I got the impression he was so thankful for all his success.  It made me wish he had been my commencement speaker instead of John Edwards (booooooo).

I remember him from I Love the 80s as well, and he was a smart, funny guy. At least his struggle is at an end and he can rest quietly now.
