OMG. Andy Hallett is gone.

:-( Lorne was one of my favorite parts of Angel, and I always thought Mr. Hallett was so very talented. How tragic.

Lorne, for those who don't know, was a green skinned, red eyed, horned demon who could tell the future for someone when he watched them sing. He had a thing for Elton John, showtunes that weren't written by Andrew Lloyd Weber, and he was one of the best parts of the show. It's the only role I ever saw Andy Hallett in, and truly, he was spectacular. He had great comic timing, and a beautiful voice.

Some Lorne quotes:

Claire: [seeing Lorne] You... you're... here for the children's reading program.
Lorne: Yes. Yes, I am.
Claire: It's not until tomorrow morning.
Lorne: I know. I never perform without checking out the space first. Get a feel for the room.
Claire: Oh! Well, the kids will flip over your costume. It looks so authentic.
Lorne: Thank you.
Claire: Ah, except for the horns. But those are probably hard to fake.
Lorne: If you only knew.


(punches Eve in the face, knocking her down)
Ooh. Oh, I'm sorry. That was a knuckle-buster. I'm Jake LaMotta over here. It's pathetic. Oh.
(leans in close to Eve)
Here's the thing, Eve: You're going to sing for me, and I'm going to read you right now. And here's one more thing: Winifred Burkle once told me after a sinful amount of Chinese food, and in lieu of absolutely nothing, "I think a lot of people would choose to be green. Your shade, if they had the choice."
If I hear one note—one quarter-note—that tells me you had any involvement, these two won't even have time to kill you.
Oh, and anything by Diana Warren will also result in your death—well, except "Rhythm of the Night."


And lastly:

Look, you're a big hunk of hero sandwich. You wanna save the girl, I can see why, but you're missing the crucial point here. Things fall apart. Not everything can be put back together, no matter how much you want it.

Well, shitty, shitty, shitty.

He was fabulous, and hilarious. *sigh*

Oh no.

I was actually thinking about Lorne today... about the last episode when he killed Lindsey.

I think I'll play the Angel soundtrack tonight... maybe a dozen times. God, he had such a wonderfully velvet voice.

RIP Andy.
