RIP Anton Yelchin

Postby ArcticFox » Mon Jun 20, 2016 9:35 am

The actor who played Kyle Reese in Terminator: Salvation and Pavel Chekhov in the new Star Trek movies... Dead at 27 in a freak accident involving a car and a mailbox.

Who would have thought the original Chekhov would outlive the new? A tragedy.

He was pinned to the stone mailbox after his car rolled down the hill and hit him. Apparently this model was recalled for this very problem.

I wonder if they'll be able to add some sort of "dedicated to" thing for him in the new movie.

Either way, really sad that it happened. :(
