    Default It's Raining Top Gun Directors

    http://www.ktla.com/news/landing/ktl...,6600078.story


    SAN PEDRO, Calif. (KTLA) -- British film director Tony Scott jumped to his death to his death Sunday afternoon from the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, police officials confirmed.

    The director climbed a fence on the south side of the bridge's apex and jumped off without hesitation about 12:30 p.m. He reportedly left a suicide note inside his black Toyota Prius, which was parked in the bridge's eastbound lanes.

    Officers from the LAPD, the CHP and the U.S. Coast Guard worked together to pull Scott's body from the water and bring it to a dock in Wilington, where it was turned over to Los Angeles County coroner's officials.


    Scott's directing credits include Top Gun, Days of Thunder, Crimson Tide, Man on Fire and Beverly Hills Cop II.

    Maybe he was a scientologist and an alien creature was after him.

    ... wait, I only have to be sympathetic if they die from cancer, right? Suicides are fair game?

    As a protective measure--Lance and I extend our most sincere condolences over this guy nobody on the board could recognize killing himself. Celebrity deaths are not funny, blah blah blah.

    Oh, he was about to start work on Top Gun 2. That explains a lot.

    As do I. While it won't bring him back, its still a clue as to what personal demons and devils he was probably dealing with.

    I find people with your opinion really offensive. Why would you deny anyone else their right to have a say in how they die?

    No, you dipshit, the implication is that he would rather die than re-hash what was already such a shitty movie to begin with.

    Have you never been so in the grip of despair that killing yourself seemed like the most reasonable action? I think it's fucked that he did this, especially since he had a couple of kids, but I can empathize with being despondent enough to think about committing suicide in the first place, much less going through with it.

    Of all the cars he could own, why was he driving a Prius?

    Yep. I have no respect for anyone who takes their own life. I have had someone close to me do this and by doing so dragged me into their mess. I'm still pissed off about it 7 years later.

    i could recognize him. Mr. Scott frequently used my place of employment for his projects. Based on my encounters, i thought he was a very nice man. That opinion extended throughout our building. i feel for his family and company.

    I understand where ThatGirl is coming from. I guess it depends on whether there were warning signs. Did he try to reach out at all? Those left behind are often left with dark hearts and a lot of anger.

    I too would recognize him. I scouted our large water tank stage with him for Deja Vu (they ended up filming in it for about a week). He seemed like a nice enough guy, especially considering the usual tendencies of mega-scale action filmmakers. Huge fan of The Last Boy Scout, varying degrees of enthusiasm for the rest of his work. RIP.

    Well, congrats on purposely derailing the joke by taking it in a very non-funny shitty direction. I would like to know what your thought process was.
