RIP Adam West, AKA Batman 1928-2017

If this month could not get any worse, it has. Today it's been announced that the cult TV icon Adam West has died aged 88 due to Leukemia.

Although acting for many years, found fame playing the caped crusader Batman (AKA Bruce Wayne) in cult TV series Batman alongside sidekick Robin (AKA Dick Bruce) played by Burt Ward as the dynamic duo fighting crime in Gotham City. The show ran from 1966-68, which also spawned a feature film. He also returned to the role many years later, in a short-lived animated series. Also he could have been James bond too, when in 1970 Cubby Broccoli offered him the role in "Diamonds Are Forever (1971), but declined the role, later stating later in his autobiography "that it should go to a British actor." Another role he took with gusto, was the character "Mayor West" in the cult adult cartoon series "Family Guy" by genius Seth Macfarlane. What a funny talented man he was. Great actor. RIP Adam. Thank you. :|
