Issac Hayes died yesterday, who will always be known to me as "Chef" on South Park. I haven't watched that show in years but Chef was one of the characters who was the most memorable to me (I still love to sing about the vegeble medley). The whole Shaft and disco thing is waaaaay before my time, so to me Issac Hayes will always be Chef.
Also!!!! In a strange twist of fate, he just finished making a movie with Bernie Mac and Samuel L. Jackson.... and seeing as how he and Bernie Mac died within days of each other, I think if I were Samuel L. I'd be watching my back!!!
