2 Jimmy Carter
3 Desmond Tutu
4 Shane MacGowan
5 David Attenborough
6 Mikhail Gorbachev
7 Dick van Dyke
8 Clint Eastwood
9 Paris Hilton
10 Pele (brazilian soccerplayer)

I think Prince Philip will be a sure thing this year, since he's been sick the last couple of months.

Dark horse will be Paris Hilton this year.

It's probably Paramount's fault that he died; Paramount posted that Dolly Parton / Kenny Rogers "Islands in the Stream" duet ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HQW7I62TNOw ) in the Intergalactic Music Thread. It's basically causality :'(

Sad news. Have lost a few good peeps already this year..

Jerry Stiller

This was posted to Ben Stiller's Twitter:
"I’m sad to say that my father, Jerry Stiller, passed away from natural causes. He was a great dad and grandfather, and the most dedicated husband to Anne for about 62 years. He will be greatly missed. Love you Dad."

I saw The Watch http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1298649/ with Ben Stiller this Saturday night on Swedish TV. And then like two days later Ben Stiller’s dad dies? What are the odds.

Clinton's a definite contender for next year's list >:p

I was surprised to hear about Fred Willard, only because yesterday I saw a second of him in the trailer for "Space Force" (Set to his cameo: http://youtu.be/io6Mqho-asM?t=125 ) (looks like a flop of a show, btw).. He was showing hand tremors in that second, though... just bad timing for that show's casting ;)
"RIP" comments haven't started appearing under that trailer yet.. soon, soon ;p

..
"And then like two days later Ben Stiller’s dad dies? What are the odds."

Yeah, if you could stop killing celebrities, that'd be great, Paramount ;)
..wait.. actually, just watch lots of media by the celebrities that I picked so I can win this year :D

John Saxon
He was one of those actors who was kind of in everything. He played lots of background characters, villains, and authority figures. May be most recognizable as the police officer in "A Nightmare on Elm Street" and one of the primary fighters in "Enter the Dragon"...
