RIP Ricardo Montalban, 1920-2009

Pop culture lost another icon today, as Ricardo Montalban passed away at age 88. He was probably best known for starring in Fantasy Island in the mid-1970s, but for me his definitive role was his turn as Klingon villain Khan in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan (1982).

"...Revenge is a dish best served cold. It is very cold in space..."

Montalban also appeared in just about every popular series of the 1970s, and was still doing voice work until recently. The Associated Press has a more extensive biography.

Ricardo Montalban must have been a contender for Lady's Man of the year at least a few times during his lifetime
