I had always assumed he was an android, or from the future

Or an android from the future.

So I’m late jumping on the “Mourning Pete Postlethwaite” train, but, guys, I had to work! Admittedly, not very hard, but solitaire wasn’t going to play itself, was it? WAS IT?

I submit that no. No, it was not.

Anyway, I’ll always remember Mssr. Postlethwaite for his role in Usual Suspects, and also his many roles in movies that I never saw, but saw him in the trailers and went, “Oooooh, Pete Postlethwaite! I love that guy!” Also for his role in Romeo + Juliet, which I have lately felt nostalgia for.

He is so damned cute in this jaunty cap, I just love him!

Since he hadn’t aged in, like, 40 years, I just assumed he was some sort of perfected robotic acting machine or possibly a time traveler. It never occurred to me that he was a real person who had cancer.

OK, maybe he aged a little.

So, Pete Postlethwaite, I will never be able to pronounce your name correctly, but that doesn’t matter, because you were one of the greats. You will be missed.

I usually say the opposite about most people: The world is worse off for not having you in it.
