RIP Mickey Rooney
At the age of 93, one of America's brightest stars died today. Of course I am speaking of the ageless Mickey Rooney, one of the greatest performers to ever grace the silver screen. He had one of the longest careers in film history, reaching from his young days in 1926, to the upcoming Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a stunning 88 years in the entertainment industry. And he survived it all with incredible wit, and a passion for his work. He was nominated for four competitive Oscars, along with his Juvenile and Honorary statues, won two Golden Globes, and an Emmy in his long career that included roles in projects such as: The Black Stallion, Bill, Babes in Arms, The Human Comedy, Breakfast at Tiffanys, The Fox and the Hound, Captain's Courageous and countless others. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. Rest in Peace.
