Alas! Ian Richardson

I am sad to note that the brilliant actor Ian Richardson has recently died. I suddenly feel inspired to revisit his phenomenal turn as a insidious and vicious politician in "House of Cards" (the very moment I have fewer than the maximum 500 DVDs in my Netflix queue). He was also excellent in the recent production of "Bleak House," as the man who inspired Sherlock Holmes in "Murder Rooms," and in the brutal "Marat/Sade." I haven't seen some of his other films and series, but am now eagerly awaiting the Netflix space to watch them, in particular "Dark City" and "Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy."
