Ricardo Montalban dies at 88

Ricardo Montalban, the Mexican-born actor who became a star in splashy MGM musicals and later as the wish-fulfilling Mr. Roarke in TV's "Fantasy Island," died Wednesday morning at his home, a city councilman said. He was 88.

Montalban's death was announced at a meeting of the city council by president Eric Garcetti, who represents the district where the actor lived. Garcetti did not give a cause of death.

"The Ricardo Montalban Theatre in my Council District -- where the next generations of performers participate in plays, musicals, and concerts -- stands as a fitting tribute to this consummate performer," Garcetti said later in a written statement.

Montalban had been a star in Mexican movies when MGM brought him to Hollywood in 1946. He was cast in the leading role opposite Esther Williams in "Fiesta." He also starred with the swimming beauty in "On an Island with You" and "Neptune's Daughter."

A later generation knew Montalban as the faintly mysterious, white-suited Mr. Roarke, who presided over an island resort where visitors were able to fulfill their lifelong dreams. "Fantasy Island" received high ratings for most of its 1978-1984 span on ABC television and still appears in reruns.



How could they not mention Kahn? Godspeed, Ricardo. I'm sure you're somewhere out there floating on a large couch made of rich Corinthian leather.

Uh, Rhett... it's the Wrath of Khan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Trek_II:_The_Wrath_of_Khan). Don't worry, I expect you to be experiencing the wrath of Dath for this transgression soon enough.

And may Mr. Montalban rest in peace.

It was only the best Star Trek movie ever made. I guess that that's not saying much, but it was still awesome, and Montalban was great in it.

RIP, oh buff one. :(

Oh Gawd no!

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan was always my favorite. Yes I saw the original introduction of Khan on the original series too.

Sad. Rest in peace guy! :(

You should. Watch the TOS episode Space Seed first, because the movie is actually its sequel.
