Eddie Munster Meets Planet of the Apes?

RIP: Tony Scott

Tony Scott, the director who brought us Top Gun, Crimson Tide, and a whole slew of popular thrillers from the 80s and 90s — as well as the younger brother of Ridley Scott (Blade Runner, Alien) — has sadly died of an apparent suicide after jumping off a bridge in San Pedro, CA. (IMP)
