Bernie Mac, Rest in Peace

Damn.

From the Associated Press:

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.

The comedian suffered from sarcoidosis, an inflammatory lung disease that produces tiny lumps of cells in the body’s organs, but had said the condition went into remission in 2005. He recently was hospitalized and treated for pneumonia, which his publicist said was not related to the disease.

Bernie was that Dude. From House Party 3 to Friday to The Original Kings of Comedy to The Bernie Mac Show to Ocean’s Eleven. He was extremely funny, extremely charismatic, a consummate performer. He will truly be missed. After the jump, two hilarious, classic clips of Bernie — the first from The Original Kings of Comedy, the second from Don’t Be A Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood:
