Alan Rickman, one of the most versatile actors of his generation, has passed away at 69.
Professor Severus Snape. Metatron. Sheriff George of Nottingham. Harry (the married guy from Love Actually who got nailed for buying a necklace for a dime that he didn’t even get to bang).
Hans Gruber. Hans fucking Gruber. The greatest movie villain of all time. No debate. Rickman excelled at being the bad guy.
They claim death comes in threes. First Lemmy, then Bowie, now Hans Gruber.
