Well, you know these always come in threes.
Word is in that Ricardo Montalban has passed away, age 88. He lists 167 performances in TV and movies (per IMDB.com), but he is best known for his portrayal of Mr. Roarke in the original "Fantasy Island" and as Khan Noonien Singh in Star Trek (both the episode "Space Seed" and the movie "Star Trek II: the Wrath of Khan"). In recent years, he had done appearances in movies and voice work in animated TV shows.
Rest in peace, Mr. Montalban.
