Just minutes ago news has hit the net of James Shigeta passing.

Most here will remember him from "Die Hard", or better yet a tremendous role in the Outer Limits classic "Nightmare".

Some articles have reported that he died in his sleep.

Very sad to hear about the loss of one of my favorite OL characters.

He was a good actor. Liked him in Die Hard also. Can't think of a single role he didn't nail.

As always, I hate hearing this.
I like a lot of his roles, but I somehow NEVER stop getting a kick out of Major Jong. The way he makes WISECRACKS about being picked as the informer (even if it will probably mean his life), and the way he analyzes each of the others to show how any of THEM could be the informer ("Pardon my Sunday Supplement psychology"). Both of those things make him very memorable.
