Gutted.

Well not really, but he was certainly a leg-end, and he played the lead in the best film of all time, so he's one of my heroes.

He certainly did well to last 80 years, as he wasn't exactly a picture of health.

But he was a fantastic actor, which is how he should be remembered.

RIP.

One of the greatest actors of all time indeed.

He had a lot of balls to turn down his Oscar and make the Hollywood corporate machine look like the bunch of assholes they are after the bad treatment that they have given to native Americans. Glad to see that Brando stood by their side.

I just freaked out when I saw that. I'll probably bawl later ... it's terrible, the last few days the media's just been bashing and bashing him ...

Brando was one of my favorite actors. I'm sad to hear that he's gone.

May he rest in eternal peace.

He certainly had no such thing while he was here on Earth, the poor man.

Despite of being an extremely difficult person to work with Marlon Brando's acting quality always paid off in the end.

Just ask Francis Ford Coppolla after 'Apocalypse Now'. The filming of that movie nearly sent Coppolla to the nut house.

Although he was a very good actor, I can't understand the phenomenon of "Godfather"
Just an average film I'd say

But sad indeed. R.I.P.

I could never possibly understand how Marlon Brando got paid more than Christopher Reeves for filiming Superman. Even though Marlon Brando's role was almost like a 'cameo-like' and Christopher Reeves had the lead role.

Brando was one of the last "Old Hollywood" Method actors. He was an excellent actor and, seeing the decline in his health and the increase in weight the past ten-odd years, it was bound to happen sooner or later. He lived a long life (80's not too bad is it?) and left a great legacy on film. He was Johnny Depp's hero (and friend). Wonder if Jacko will turn up for the funeral? (Brando was so large, they'll probably have to bury him in a piano case!)

Most likely, yes. They were very good friends.

That's a good joke, but I think that you should have waited for a few days before posting that.

He was never really one of my favourites, but on the bright side - if he can make it to 80, there's hope for us all. He ended up in a right state.

"I could have been a contender" was one of his immortal lines.

Yes, you could have Marlon. But you let yourself go big style.
You did right, lad. You did right.
