Dr. Manhattan Dies

Greg Plitt, 37, a body double in the superhero movie Watchmen for the Dr. Manhattan character died yesterday afternoon when he was hit by a Metrolink train after witnesses saw him near the tracks with a video camera in his hand.

Oddly enough, his image is right over my head as I type this post.
I bought that action figure a few years ago, and it has been right above me for a while now.

I liked the blue Dr. Manhattan character, as it reminded me of a cross (pardon the pun) between the Christ statue in Rio and the neon blue crosses that I have written about on this blog over the years, not that I'm really into Christianity that much.
Ironically, Greg's first movie role was in The Good Shepard as a guard.


Now, whenever I look up at my Dr. Manhattan figure I'll think of Greg, who has left his physical body and is now in the spirit world.

Hadn't heard about this. Strange.
