I went through IMDB earlier to see if I could identify it but none of the titles meant much.

We watched Knives Out recently - he was brilliant in that! (And that movie was legit just a ton of fun!) Hard to complain about making it to 91, but still a sad one to have reported.

Bloody hell, that might be it. At least there's a fish tank in it.

No memory of Elliott Gould though.

Leon Spinks, age 67. https://www.bbc.com/sport/boxing/55961786

No one had him, but I did have him on my short list when doing this year's picks. Ah well. DaveLovesDee had him as a replacement pick in 2020 but dropped in the new 2021 list. Whoops!

Rush Limbaugh, age 70 - https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-54646305

That's 30 points to me and DaveLovesDee.

I'm putting Linda Nolan back on my list.

Large Scotch. Somewhere out there is a compilation of clips of Mike Baldwin ordering one after another, and a compilation of him punching people. He was great.

I remember watching Corrie as a kid and wondering why Mike Baldwin called it "Scotch". Nobody in Scotland calls whisky "Scotch", it struck me then as a really unusual thing to say. And also the "large" didn't seem to reflect the measures that were served by the adults at any family party I'd ever been to.

That's because in Scotland you ask for whisky and get a scothch whiskey, or even more often you ask by the name. In England, whisky as asked for could mean Scotch, Irish or Bourbon, it's quite rare for english pubs to offer malts, usually the one they have on the optics is a blended.
