    I'm saddened by this too. He was far from being a great actor, but a great action star.

    If you were a 15 year-old boy in 1977, you wanted to be him (not least because if you were a 15 year-old girl in 1977, you wanted to sleep with him).

    Sad news. :( I think he’d have made a great James Bond.



    Jpd1962, I bet you put your hands together and made a gun shape, and run around to the Professionals theme tune? ;)

    You know, he was apparently turned down for Bond because the producer thought he was too aggressive and macho.

    That strikes as something of an achievement right there.

    Was sad to hear this on the news. I was a big fan of the professionals.
