is this some kind of sick jokeHave read all day about how he 'only played villains'... Rubbish! Lee was an extremely versatile actor, with a wicked sense of humour. Yes, he played the odd baddie (notably as a copper in Monkey Trousers), but a cursory look a his IMDB will absolve him of any 'typecast' accusations. In Liquid News and, memorably, the 11 O'Clock Show, his social commentaries were dry and arch, yes, but also delivered with a sense of fun. I have no idea how you could look at the man and think of him as pure evil. His performances were nuanced and complex. RIP.
No age at all, tbh.
Never knew he was in LOTR and Star Wars btw. My estimation of the man just goes up and up.
