    Oh man......

    Was born in that city. Almost every home there has a view of that bridge. Was there on Friday.

    RIP.

    Really sad about this one as he directed some of my all-time faves. Really weird, too why he would off himself at such an age.

    Hasn't there been another thread very recently about a suicide..?

    I wonder whether it's a growing trend or whether they're just being publicised more...

    In any case, it seems to me that the world is getting ever more full of people suffering and in despair - it's not a happy planet at the moment, for sure...

    oh man this is sad.......reports are that he was terminally ill, and I guess the way an action movie director would go out is with a big stunt


    but it's terrible for the people who had to witness it, and the loved ones who have to live with the after math...that's just selfish

    Tony Scott, director of "Top Gun," "Days of Thunder" and "Crimson Tide," had inoperable brain cancer, a source close to him told ABC News.

    The famed director died Sunday after jumping from a bridge in Los Angeles, authorities said.

    Police said they received a 911 call at about 12:30 p.m. that an individual had jumped off the Vincent Thomas Bridge. The body was recovered around 3 p.m., when it was identified by authorities as Scott, according to Lt. Joseph Bale of the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office. An autopsy is scheduled to be performed today.

    The Coroner's Office found several notes to loved ones in Scott's car, a spokesman told The Associated Press. A suicide note was later found at his office, according to the AP.

    Too bad his kids were robbed of any more quality time with their Father.

    On the bright side, he won't be making any more shit movies like Top Gun and Crimson Tide.
