Tony Curtis, Rest In Peace 1925-2010

Tony Curtis has passed away. Here's the AFP release...

WASHINGTON (AFP) – Actor Tony Curtis, best known for his role opposite Marilyn Monroe in "Some Like It Hot," has died at the age of 85, US media reported on Thursday, citing his family. A representative for Curtis' daughter, actress Jamie Lee Curtis, confirmed his death to Entertainment Tonight, the television program said on its website. ABC News also reported the death.
