Jonathan Frid, 1924-2012 - Topless Robot
"Jonathan Frid passed away last week at the age of 87. A noted stage actor, he'll still be best remembered for starring as the vampire Barnabas Collins in the original supernatural soap opera Dark Shadows. If I were a more terrible person, I'd make a crack about Frid avoiding Tim Burton's upcoming Dark Shadows movie, but apparently Frid and several of his DS cast mates make a cameo in the film, so he obviously didn't mind. But now it's sad that he won't be around to enjoy the attention and the interest in the original Dark Shadows that the movie will spawn when it premieres this summer." - Me from Bookmarklet
Oh. I didn't know that the Dark Shadows mess actually came from somewhere. I had no idea about its background and no inclination to find out more based on how awful the previews are. I'm pretty sure that the original show had to be better than this movie looks. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
