    Knew this would be coming. Loved a ton of stuff he did over the years, he always entertained me. Seemed like a sweet man,....prayers to his loved ones.

    93 is one hell of a run.

    Comedy or Drama; didn't matter. Need him to do a little song and dance; not a problem. Leading role; sure thing. Second fiddle; knew all the plays. Third man; too easy.

    There are maybe two or three or maybe four around Hollywood with his versatility -- Hugh Jackman is the only one who springs immediately to mind -- but Rooney was just so natural, even when he was playing someone who basically was a send-up of one of his older roles (Night at the Museum)...he made it look easy.

    More, he looked like he was having fun, even when he was pulling on your heartstrings.

    Apparently he could be quite an asshole and also claimed some things that just weren't true (like he made up the name Marilyn Monroe for Norma Jean etc.). But he was of the generation of stars who could do it all: sing, dance, act drama and comedy etc.

    He just cracked me up as Whitey in Boys Town. He did live an amazing life, God bless him.

    RIP Mickey, you were a helluva character. And I suspect the only little thing about you was your stature. Ah hahaha.
    the thought of mickey's shlong makes me want to vomit almost as much as seeing the pic of kim's butt posted in the other thread.

    as an aside, for judy fans, there was a great bio of her on pbs the other night.

    Anyone remember him playing the mentally challenged guy in "Bill?" Was a tv movie in the 80s, I think. I don't think it was meant to be funny, but I laughed my ass off for years going around saying "William....Bill for short."

    Sad. He was my "brush with fame" moment in life. He was performing in a play in Philly back around 1981-82. I was rushing to class and ran up the steps from the subway. When I got to the top I swung around the stair rail to get to the sidewalk and plowed right into a man and knocked him to the ground. His assistant and I quickly helped him up. As he was getting up his head knocked into my breasts which are large. I then realized it was Mickey. I was apologizing profusely and was so embarrassed. He looked at my breasts, smiled, and said "it was worth it. Now slow down before you kill someone" and he laughed.
