Albert Finney, the esteemed British actor and five-time Oscar nominee known for his shape-shifting work in Tom Jones, The Dresser, Murder on the Orient Express and Erin Brockovich, has died. He was 82.

Finney's family told the Associated Press on Friday that he "passed away peacefully after a short illness with those closest to him by his side." The actor was diagnosed with kidney cancer in 2007.

You want to see a real performance, watch Under the Volcano. Or The Dresser. The man was a titan. Glad he reunited with Lumet for Lumet's last film too.

The Poirot responsible for the creation of Jason Bourne, James Bond and Erin Brockovich. Good CV.

:cry: :cry: :cry: He is god-tier in Big Fish. I already bawl my eyes out to that movie, now I may never be able to watch it again. Literally might die from crying too much if I do.
