Reg E. Cathey has died at only 59. He played Carcetti's adviser in The Wire, and the ribs guy in the US House of Cards.

Billy Graham

For him, I hope there is a hell.

Edit to add:

There are places ready for him:

Bolgia of the Flatterers

Bolgia of the Evil Counsellors

That's hilarious until the last line. I prefer to think of him stumbling around longer, not grossed out or angry but just really baffled and trying to figure it all out. So many gay icons! So much slang! And the handkerchief flagging, my god, the flagging!

From Wikipedia:
At the beginning of the Season 6 cliffhanger [of ST:TNG], "Descent, Part 1", Data is seen playing poker with holographic depictions of Stephen Hawking, Sir Isaac Newton, and Albert Einstein. Hawking portrayed his own hologram for this episode, making him the only guest in any Star Trek series to play himself. When taking a tour of the set, he paused at the Warp core, smiled, and said, "I'm working on that." During the tour, Hawking requested, and was allowed, to sit in the captain's chair of the Enterprise-D.

Stephen Hawking's work was so far out on the edge that it is difficult to guess what practical application it will have. (If there already is, I am not aware of it.)

It was amazing that he survived so long with his condition.

Clearly, the big money in science is to be a science popularizer, not an actual scientist.
