Actor, Magician, Ricky Jay Dies
An unfortunate event! Ricky Jay, the famous magician, and actor, was found unconscious this afternoon.
Paramedics arrived at Ricky Jay's Los Angeles, California home only to discover him unresponsive. Jay was rushed to a near-by resuscitation unit, but sadly, he was pronounced dead upon arrival.
Further medical results yielded that Ricky Jay had died of natural causes. At this point in time, no foul play is suspected.
Ricky Jay will be fondly remembered for his part in "Boogie Nights", "House of Games", "The Spanish Prisoner", "Things Change", and of course "Deadwood".
He is remembered as a great man, and his friends noted that he will likely be "hard to replace".
A service to honor Ricky Jay is scheduled for later this week.
