Such a terrific and versatile actor. His portrayal as Ross Webster was an inspiration for the Business man Lex Luthor we know now. And his Napoleon Solo…unbeatable
May his soul rest in peace. Thank you Sir.

He was such a talented actor. How fitting it was for Henry Cavill to play his hit tv show on the big screen, and Vaughn was in Superman 3. He was great in The A-Team final season, and enjoy his film of the magnificent 7. A talented actor, he’ll be missed.

United Network Command Law Enforcement known as the Man from Uncle agent Napoleon Solo, along with his partner Illya Kuryakin is how I came to know and appreciate the late Robert Vaughn – who will be missed but leaves behind a legacy as one of few who defined a character for many of us.

Thoroughly enjoyed him in UNCLE. From “Open Channel D” to the best line in Superman 3 ” I ask you to kill Superman, and you’re telling me you couldn’t even do that one, simple thing.” An actor with a wonderful range, Vaughn will be missed.

Not to mention another memorable line :

If there’s one thing I hate…It’s greed.

Anf the guy wanted to have it all.

This is one of those posts where one can’t really click on “like” because I don’t like Mr. Vaughn being dead. And can’t click on “Dislike” as the post is really nice.

Just thank him for all those years of entertainment he gave us and my condolences to his family.
