Yup... RIP mate. He was only 50 it seems. He's the one who sell the Camaro (Bumblebee) to Sam Witwicky in the Transformers movie as well.

Thats a sad news. RIP Bernie.

I heard even Isaac Hayes passed away. Bernie was a great comedian, Ocean's series would miss a great actor. I loved him in a movie with Ashton Kutcher(even i cant remember the name) but it was a good one.

And yes, Isaac Hayes passed away too.
