Say, since we're off topic:

Who can name the only two actors to be killed by a Terminator, a Predator AND an "Alien"?

Busy not giving a damn,

I asked Auntie Val:

Oh my God! For God's sake, knock, will you? Can't a girl relax in peace without--what's that, darling? Killed by a Terminator, a Predator and an "Alien?" Actors? Name actors? Why sweetie--all Hollywood actors, and indeed all of Hollywood, and indeed all of California have been well and truly massacred by Governor Schwarzenwhosis, who was the Terminator, IS a predator and was originally, according to his green card status, an alien.

Now hand me my girdle and make me a drink.

>It can't be rocket science to find out what my full name is, if you think that's going to somehow make you like what I write.<

It's not a question of liking what you write, it's a question of taking you seriously. Since you seem to be new here, you should know that posters who use cryptic names or obvious aliases are generally less trustworthy then those who simply come out and say who they are.

Yes, I did play some verbal parcheesi awhile back about this story with a variety of posters, and while some of the debate was valid, a lot of it wasn't, so I'm still a bit testy about being misquoted on what you can see is a highly-charged issue.

But that all said, here's the peace pipe. And since no-one answered the reference question, it was from Spinal Tap.

For some reason, I think the other one would be Lance Henrickson, though as I never watched the first half of AVP, that's completely a guess.

Cheers, Jon

JON WINS THE CUP!

Bravo, kids.

And it's really NOT about the butt-hole pleasures. It's about the butt-hole TREASURES.

Jan! Where are you man!? I'm making a mockery of things.

Which movie did Henrikson get killed by an alien?

I think Jan is out rioting.

Aliens, as Bishop the android, he was torn up and deactivated. So I guess "killed" isn't the right term.

Yeah, he survived that and saved the girl from getting sucked out of the airlock. He only deactivated to go into hypersleep.

So Bill Paxton has the singular honor.

"His calm, selfless bravery slowly wins Ripley's trust, and is seemingly destroyed saving Ripley and Newt from the Alien Queen. In Alien 3, Bishop makes a brief appearance when Ripley finds his remains and partially repairs his speech and memory functions. Bishop reveals the events that followed the conclusion of the 2nd film, then asks Ripley to disconnect him for good."

Well, the woman who played Vasquez in Aliens sorta got killed by an alien (as it forced her to set off the grenade) and by a terminator (as Furlong's foster mother in T2). Yaphet Kotto got killed by a Terminator and an alien. It's the Predator that's the pain in the neck, especially if you're Gary Busey. At least Carl Weathers has the distinction of having been killed by a Predator and Dolph Lundgren.

Cheers, Jon

As well, the original Predator movie has the dubious honor of having spawned not one but two governors.

An easy one.

Anybody?

Arnold Schwartenegger and Jesse "The Body" Ventura.

Do I get a cookie?


Chuck

P.S. I think it was Paul Winfield that was killed in Terminator, not Kotto.

Which means Paul Winfield has the distinction of having been killed by a Terminator and a Star Trek earbug (OK, the earbug caused him to commit suicide). Yaphet Kotto got killed by an alien, James Bond and Eamonn Walker (in Homicide).

And Eamonn (?) Walker's character on Oz killed Adubisi, and the actor who played Adubisi is now Mr. Echo on Lost. Which Lost actor or actress has played three different characters in the X-Files?

Cheers, Jon
