I just learned about the death of one of my favourite comedians, Bernie Mac just a while ago. It really comes as a shock to me.. Apparently, the actor-comedian died today, August 9th 2008, one week after being hospitalized for pneumonia. He was 50. Back in 2005, he was diagnosed with scardiosis which may also lead to death.
I personally think that he's among one of the most hilarious African-American actor-comedian.. I loved him in "Guess Who" where he acted in a romantic comedy with Ashton Kutcher, loved his short stint as "Bobby Bolivia" in "Transformers".. he was also in "Charlie's Angels", "Ocean's Eleven", "Ocean's Twelve" and "Ocean's Thirteen"..
He will be sorely missed by legions of fans across the world. May he rest in peace.
