    CHICAGO - Emmy- and Golden Globe-nominated actor and comedian Bernie Mack has died at age 50, his publicist said Saturday.
    Publicist Danica Smith said Bernie Mac died early Saturday at a hospital in the Chicago area of complications due to pneumonia.
    The comedian suffered from sarcoidosis, an inflammatory lung disease that produces tiny lumps of cells in the body’s organs, but he had said the condition went into remission in 2005. He recently had been hospitalized and treated for pneumonia.
    Mac had starring roles in “Ocean’s Eleven,” “Bad Santa,” “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle” and “Transformers.”
    The comedian drew critical and popular acclaim with his Fox television series “The Bernie Mac Show,” which aired more than 100 episodes from 2001 to 2006.

    Oh My God!!! I had no idea Bernie Mac was even sick!
    I LOVE him! He is/was so funny. His stand-up could be incredibly vulgar but spot on especially his political stuff.

    That was one sexy,dark choclate man. He will be missed. :frown1:

    This is terrible news first thing in the morning. I loved Bernie's comedic style and will continue to enjoy his style of viewing life by watching him as much as I can. These last couple of years have sucked up some of the great ones, not just in comedy.

    God bless you, Bernie. You were loved and will be severely missed:cool:

    Bernie Mac will be missed but not forgotten with all the work he has left behind.

    I didn't see too much of his stand up, but I enjoyed "The Bernie Mac Show". With so many shows, especially sitcoms, going for cheap vulgar laughs, his show was clean but still funny.

    Went all day without hearing any news at all (which is not unusual on weekends). Quite shocking news. A reminder of how fragile life is.

    Thank GOD you guys are aware of his brilliant body of work, this guy has been doing comedy since his teenage years. I read a gay forum where no one knew him as anything except "that guy in Charlie's Angels".:mad:
