In memoriam: Ricardo Montalban

Ricardo_Montalban.jpg


Ricardo Montalban died Wednesday morning at age 88. Although probably most famous for his role as Mr. Roarke on Fantasy Island, he worked the MGM musicals of the 50's as well, and was nominated for a Tony during his career on Broadway. Trekkies will know him as "Khan" (as in Wrath of).

Montalban also founded an organization for Latino actors called "Nosotros." He was the father of four and grandfather of six, and by all accounts, a kind, dignified and humble man.

  1. Dos Equis should have hired Ricardo Montalban to do a few ads for them, he could have done their "most interesting man in the world" bit perfectly (he has a Spanish accent too)
