It has definitely been a rough start of the year. Following the deaths over the last couple weeks of Motörhead's Lemmy Kilmister and , it has been reported that actor Alan Rickman has died of cancer at the age of 69, which is ironically the same age and cause of Bowie's death less than a week ago. Alan Rickman is most famous for his villainous roles, including Hans Gruber in Die Hard, The Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, and Judge Turpin in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. His other notable roles include Alexander Dane/ Dr. Lazarus in Galaxy Quest, Metatron in 's Dogma, and Severus Snape in the Harry Potter series. Alan Rickman will most definitely be missed.
