John Philip Law, R.I.P.

It seems that, sadly, Kalgan has been taken away from us. John Philip Law, the actor responsible for the notable MST3K-movie roles of the sneaky Diabolik and Space Mutiny‘s evil Kalgan, has passed away at the age of 70. Law is probably more commonly known for his role as the blind angel in Barbarella. I quite enjoyed his memorable work in Diabolik, Space Mutiny, and Barbarella and I’m sorry to see him go. His cause of death is currently unknown.

The LA Times has a pretty interesting obituary here.

    That is an awesome banner.

  2. A great actor. Remember him as Sinbad in one of my favorite films as a kid. RIP John.
