Eight time Academy Award nominated actor Peter O'Toole has died. BBC News reported that the actor had died yesterday at Wellington hospital after suffering from a long illness. He was 81.

Mr. O'Toole had a long list of movie credits in his career, from "Laurence of Arabia" (1962), "The Lion in Winter" (1968), "High Spirits" (1988) and "Troy" (2004). He was better known to comic book movie fans as Zaltar from the 1984 superhero film "Supergirl", for which he was nominated for Worst Actor at the Golden Raspberry Awards. However, he also won an Emmy, a BAFTA, four Golden Globes and received an honorary Academy Award in 2003.

R.I.P. Peter O'Toole. You will be missed.

I've never seen Supergirl, anyone know if it's worth watching?

Jesus...I thought I was a comic fan, but that is NOT what I knew him from.

It's worth watching once. Simply for the fact that it's the only live action Supergirl film we've gotten so far.

@DEVLIN712, it's a very terrible movie.

RIP Mr. O'Toole.
