Remembering Anton Yelchin

Today we mourn the loss of a fine young actor, Anton Yelchin. He may be best known as Checkov in the Star Trek reboot, but he also appeared in genre films like Fright Night, Terminator: Salvation, and Odd Thomas. He also showed his dramatic and comedic range in films like Charlie Bartlett and The Beaver. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
