Joseph Wiseman, 1918-2009.

Canadian actor Joseph Wiseman has passed away. Best known for portraying James Bond's first nemesis, Dr. No, Wiseman had a long career in theater - having arrived on Broadway in the 1930s - in addition to his many film and television appearances. He was predeceased in February by his wife of 45 years, American dancer, choreographer and teacher Pearl Lang (1921-2009). Of his most famous role, Wiseman claimed he had no inkling of what he was letting himself in for, saying "I thought it might be just another Grade-B Charlie Chan mystery."
