'Titanic' and 'The Omen' actor David Warner dies at 80
LONDON (AP) — David Warner, a versatile British actor whose roles ranged from Shakespearean tragedies to sci-fi cult classics, has died. He was 80. Warner’s family said he died from a cancer-related illness on Sunday at Denville Hall, a retirement home for entertainers in London. Often cast as a villain, Warner had roles in the 1971 psychological thriller “Straw Dogs,” the 1976 horror classic “The Omen,” the 1979 time-travel adventure “Time After Time” — he was Jack the Ripper — and the 1997 blockbuster “Titanic,” where he played the malicious valet Spicer Lovejoy.
According to Jim Carrey, he's done enough. A lot of fans beg to differ, as some his classics will live forever.
In truth, he saved films throughout his career, like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Had it not been for Carrey's comedic acting chops, the film would have sank.

"Brad was constantly haranguing me. Did you kiss her, did you kiss her? No, he came around once or twice, very nice gentleman, really cool guy. They make a great couple, really sweet."
