Newswire: R.I.P. Anton Yelchin
According to a report from the Associated Press, actor Anton Yelchin died early this morning in what’s being called a “fatal traffic collision.” He was 27.
Yelchin popped in a number of smaller roles over the years, but he really hit his big break when he appeared as Ensign Chekov in the rebooted Star Trek series. Since then, he has appeared in the Smurfs movies, Terminator Salvation, the Fright Night remake, the romantic drama Like Crazy, and the recent thriller Green Room.
We’ll have a more thorough write-up shortly.
