Goobye, Lionel…

MikeEvans.jpgWe cry every year during the Oscars at the photo montage to all the celebrities who died in the past year, so we cued up our own tribute this year to honor those who passed in 2006, like Robert Altman, Bruno Kirby and Aaron Spelling. Then we woke up to the news today that Mike Evans, who originated the role of Lionel Jefferson on All in the Family and continued it for a while on The Jeffersons, died on December 14 at 57 from throat cancer. He’s been out of the limelight for a while, but we watch him all the time on TV anyway.

To pay your own tribute, see our In Memoriam slideshow.
