    Just remembered it's 25 years today since Bill Bixby died. The original and still, imo, the best Banner.

    Ricky Jay, the master magician who also acted in films and TV shows such as Boogie Nights, House of Games, and Deadwood, has died at the age of 70.

    In the 1997 James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies, Jay played a cyber-terrorist to Pierce Brosnan’s Bond.

    His partner in the Deceptive Practices company, Michael Weber, tweeted, “I am sorry to share that my remarkable friend, teacher, collaborator and co-conspirator is gone.” A New Yorker profile called him “the most gifted sleight of hand artist alive.” Jay was known for his card tricks and memory feats.

    Ricky Jay, Master Magician and Actor in ‘Deadwood,’ ‘Boogie Nights,’ Dies at 72


    Caught him in an old episode of The X-Files a little while back too. RIP to an entertaining actor and a fantastic magician.


    Edit:

    Just found this anecdote on Jay's Wikipedia entry;

    In his 1993 New Yorker profile of Jay, Mark Singer related the following story from playwright David Mamet and theatre director Gregory Mosher:

    Some years ago, late one night in the bar of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Chicago, [Jay] was performing magic with a deck of cards. Also present was a friend of Mamet and Mosher’s named Christ Nogulich, the director of food and beverage at the hotel. After twenty minutes of disbelief-suspending manipulations, Jay spread the deck face up on the bar counter and asked Nogulich to concentrate on a specific card but not to reveal it. Jay then assembled the deck face down, shuffled, cut it into two piles, and asked Nogulich to point to one of the piles and name his card. “Three of clubs,” Nogulich said, and he was then instructed to turn over the top card. He turned over the three of clubs. Mosher, in what could be interpreted as a passive-aggressive act, quietly announced, “Ricky, you know, I also concentrated on a card.” After an interval of silence, Jay said, “That’s interesting, Gregory, but I only do this for one person at a time.” Mosher persisted: “Well, Ricky, I really was thinking of a card.” Jay paused, frowned, stared at Mosher, and said, “This is a distinct change of procedure.” A longer pause. “All right—what was the card?” “Two of spades.” Jay nodded, and gestured toward the other pile, and Mosher turned over its top card. The deuce of spades. A small riot ensued.
