MICHAEL GOUGH passed away today at the age of 94. My fellow dorks will fondly remember him as ALFRED PENNYWORTH, Bruce Wayne's Butler in the Tim Burton 'BATMAN' movies. He reprised his role in Schumacher's 2 Batman films (but we do not speak of those movies).

I really enjoyed Gough's take on Alfred which spanned nearly a decade. Not a bad legacy to leave behind, excluding the 178 films & television he's credited with since 1946... including 'Dr. Who', 'Venom' and 'Horror of Dracula'!

Rest in Peace, Mr. Gough.

I'm saddened by this news, As an avid Batman enthusiast and Horror lover. He was a great actor and will definitely be missed.
