    Jean-Pierre Bacri, the French actor and screenwriter known for his collaborations with Agnčs Jaoui, has died at the age of 69. He died after a battle with cancer according to multiple French reports which cited his agent Anne Alvares-Correa.

    Bacri broke out on the stage and screen in the 1980s, including appearing in Luc Besson’s 1985 thriller Subway alongside Isabelle Adjani and Christopher Lambert. It was in that decade that he also first met Jaoui, and the pair would go on to have a vibrant creative partnership that spanned films including the multi-Cesar Award-winning Smoking / No Smoking, Family Resemblances and The Taste Of Others, with the latter also nominated for the foreign language film Oscar in 2001.

                  Hank Aaron, one of the greatest baseball players ever and its former home run king, died on Friday. He was 86.

                  Aaron is among the most celebrated players in the sport and is most notable for breaking Babe Ruth’s all time home run record in 1974, eventually finishing with 755 career home runs. He did so despite facing intense racism in the deep south, even receiving death threats during his pursuit of the record.

                    And he hit those home runs without steroids, unlike Barry Bonds.

                                Oscar winner and multiple Emmy winner Cloris Leachman, best remembered as the delightfully neurotic Phyllis Lindstrom on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” and her own subsequent sitcom, died of natural causes on Tuesday in Encinitas, Calif. She was 94.

                                “It’s been my privilege to work with Cloris Leachman, one of the most fearless actresses of our time,” her longtime manager Juliet Green said. “There was no one like Cloris. With a single look she had the ability to break your heart or make you laugh ’till the tears ran down your face. You never knew what Cloris was going to say or do and that unpredictable quality was part of her unparalleled magic.”

                                The daffy, self-absorbed Phyllis, a character she claimed was close to her own persona, brought the actress two Emmys as a featured actress in a series during the mid-’70s and made Leachman a household name.

                                Damn, what a great career she's had. RIP Ms. Leachman!
