Wow, this sucks. He was always a favorite actor of mine.

Gasp...I wasn't expecting to read this this is most saddening.  Mr. Montalban made many good movies/shows great.  He had an unforgettable voice and suave acting style.  I often remember him most for his role in The Planet Of The Apes movies.  RIP to a true legend.  Bluesad

He was one of those actors that had many memorable roles. Khan, Armondo, Mr. Rourke, Grandad from Spy Kids, etc... He will be missed in the acting world.

May he forever rest on that rich, soft Corinthian leather.  The really freaks me because I just broke out TWOK the other night and watched it again.  Ricardo was one suave dude and the great Latin lover of his time.
