RIP Peter O’Toole [Darleen Click]
He was 81
Peter O’Toole, the legendary actor who starred in the classic 1981 (sic – the film is from 1962) film “Lawrence of Arabia,” has died at age 81, his agent told several media outlets including the BBC.
The Irish-born star of the stage and screen got his big break when he won the role of British adventurer T.E. Lawrence in the flick.
It earned him eight Oscar nominations, and O’Toole went on to shine films such as Beckett, The Lion in Winter and Goobye, Mr. Chips.
He also the voice of Anton Ego, the delightfully morose antagonist in Ratatouille.
