I believe he was some sort of consultant, but I suspect that was more of an honorary title than anything. The guy was close to his hundredth birthday, I doubt he would have had an active role.

Correction, he was 95, not 99.

During the new Hillary documentary Bill Clinton comes clean about the affair he had with Lewinsky, stating he engaged in “oral sex” with her to relieve the stress of the job. :shock: :Bonk:

We were talking about him a few years ago, he had such a long history in film, so many culturally relevant movies that will be watched for a long time. I doubt any actor of our modern era or future actors born today will ever come close.

One thing that obituary taught me is that I've been saying his surname wrong all these years. I've always pronounced it to rhyme with "lie-down" (minus the final "n").

Albert Uderzo: Asterix co-creator and illustrator dies aged 92

Albert Uderzo, who drew the Asterix comic books, has died at the age of 92.
He created the famous stories - about the adventures of Gaulish warriors fighting the Roman Empire - with his friend René Goscinny in 1959.

As well as illustrating the series, Urderzo took over the writing following Goscinny's death in 1977.
The books have sold 370 million copies worldwide, in dozens of languages, and several stories have been turned into cartoons and feature films.

The series continues to this day under new ownership, with the most recent book, Asterix and the Chieftain's Daughter, released last October.

"Albert Uderzo died in his sleep at his home in Neuilly, after a heart attack that was not linked to the coronavirus," his son-in-law Bernard de Choisy told the AFP news agency.
