"CHICAGO - Bernie Mac, the actor and comedian who teamed up in the casino heist caper "Ocean's Eleven" and gained a prestigious Peabody Award for his sitcom "The Bernie Mac Show," died Saturday at age 50.

"Actor/comedian Bernie Mac passed away this morning from complications due to pneumonia in a Chicago area hospital," his publicist, Danica Smith, said in a statement from Los Angeles."

Oh wow... That's quite a shock. I wasn't a big fan of the Bernie Mac Show, but I thought he was great in all his movies. :(

Always helps to throw some negativity in your thoughts on someone who's passed on. Not like they deserve respect or anything...

Bernie's death caught me completely off-guard. It's a sad say when someone so great at their craft loses their life. He will be missed.

I nearly cried when John Lemmon and Walter Mathau died. They were brilliant comedians and I loved them in all the roles I saw. Bernie Mac is no different. He helped pioneer a new generation of comedy, and he indeed had more years to go.

I will miss this man and I'm sure the whole country weeps for the loss of such a brilliant funny man.

Also, RIP sum um a bitch.

No way. I remember reading that Mac had pneumonia after an article on Freeman's car accident. I was so relieved Freeman made it out OK, I forgot about Mac's condition.

Bernie Mac was always fun to see in any part he played, that fun and charisma will be sorely missed.

This just seems to...anticlimactic.

I expected him to live to a ripe old age, sitting on the porch of his house and cracking jokes with his kids and relatives. Perhaps both scaring and entertaining the neighborhood children with his wit and charm, y'know?

His personality and natural charisma was too big for life, I guess.
