Oh boy. Yesterday, Number Six passed away. Today, it was Khan.
Ricardo Montalban is one of the reasons why Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was such a great flick. He and Shatner played off each other very well. Much of Khan's more memorable dialogue is pulled straight out of the mouth of Captain Ahab from Moby Dick.
There's been a lot of debate as to whether Mr. Montalban was wearing a prosthetic over his chest to make himself look jacked in the role. I don't know what the truth is, but apparently, he was a physical fitness nut so I wouldn't be surprised if that was all him.
They say these things happen in threes, but I'd hate to see another cool, old school actor go.
