Aww. If I wasn't heading out of town in a matter of hours, I'd pop in Men in Black or the family favorite Summer Rental.

Ex-Yankees pitcher Jim Bouton was a 20-game winner, won two World Series games, spent 10 years in the big leagues — and made a bigger impact with a pen in his hand than a baseball.

The author of the groundbreaking hardball tell-all “Ball Four” died Wednesday following a battle with a brain disease linked to dementia, according to friends of the family. The Newark, N.J., native was in the Massachusetts home he shared with his wife Paula Kurman after weeks of hospice care. He was 80.

Rutger Hauer, the versatile Dutch leading man of the ’70s who went on star in the 1982 “Blade Runner” as Roy Batty, died July 19 at his home in the Netherlands after a short illness. He was 75.

Damn, loved him in Blade Runner and Verhoeven's Soldier of Orange. Great actor, even if he did star in a lot of shlock in the 90s. Blind Fury being a particular favorite.
