Paul Winfield, actor of many sci-fi roles, has died.

«He also played a human Starfleet captain in the 1982 film “Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan,” and later an alien captain on a 1991 episode of TV’s “Star Trek: The Next Generation.”»

UPDATE (revised via petdance): Apparently writer/actor Spalding Gray was fished out of the East River Sunday after disappearing several weeks ago. The cause of death remains unknown.
