Per kalogrenant — it is my sad duty to report that one of my favorite actors just died last night: Carlo Pedersoli, better known as Bud Spencer.

He's best known for his comedic spaghetti westerns, of course, but he was a gifted man of many talents who was (among other things) an actor, legal scholar, Olympic swimmer, stuntman, inventor, singer and composer, author, fashion designer, music producer, water polo player, airline founder/owner, and more.

Here's to you, Bud.

I can't say I've ever seen this man's films (I'd certainly remember a title like "Even Angels Eat Beans") - most of my spaghetti western experiences revolved around Clint Eastwood and Lee Van Cleef. I'll try to find some of his work sometime :o)

Be sure to, they're pretty funny — so long as you like "bad guys get beat up in humorous ways" movies. :)

Call it a hunch, but I think he liked pasta just a little bit. XD
