Mickey Rooney, Legendary Actor, Dies at 93

28 minutes ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mickey Rooney, the pint-sized actor who was one of MGM’s giant box office attractions in the late ’30s and early ’40s, has died, sources confirm. He was 93.

As adept at comedy as drama and an excellent singer and dancer, Rooney was regarded as the consummate entertainer. During a prolific career on stage and screen that spanned eight decades (“I’ve been working all my life, but it seems longer,” he once said), he was nominated for four Academy Awards and received two special Oscars, the Juvenile Award in 1939 (shared with Deanna Durbin) and one in 1983 for his body of work.

He also appeared on series and TV and in made for television movies, one of which, “Bill,” the touching story of a mentally challenged man, won him an Emmy. He was Emmy nominated three other times.

Rest well.


Totally random, but he was reported to have a huge dick.

He lived a good, long life. Sad to read he's gone. :(

There is not many of the "old timers" left. I know Doris Day just had a b'day, like 91 maybe.

Mickey and Judy are now getting the gang together to fix up the barn for a show!

I think the role a lot of people will know him best for these days is Kris Kringle/Santa Claus in "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town."
