Another year? I picked Kirk Douglas in 1999!

If we all drop him from our lists this year, I guarantee that he will drop dead.

As always, I'm playing the odds, not going for points. The maximum I could earn, if all of these wonderful actors dropped dead in early January, is 46. The first four are still over 100. (They seem to be proving George Burns right when he said, "If you make it to 100, you've got it made, because very few people die past 100.")

They're listed in descending age. Norman Lloyd (best known for St. Elsewhere) turned 105 on Nov. 8. Betty White will turn 98 on Jan. 17. The youngest, Conrad Janis (Mork & Mindy), turns 92 in February.

Emphasis mine. Oops! I was looking at my 2019 list when I wrote that. For 2020 I removed Conrad Janis this year in favor of Harry Belafonte, arguably more famous, and older. He turns 93 in March.

Most of my list remains intact, but two of my picks brought in points in 2019! The late Kathleen Blanco has been replaced with Shane McGowan – lead singer of The Pogues, and Valerie Harper’s death got Jimmy Carter promoted from alternate status. I also had Jim Kelly and Michael J. Fox swap places.

The Lucky 13 for 2020:

Shane McGowan
Tom Brokaw
Tommy Chong
Sean Connery
Shannen Doherty
Michael Douglas
Jimmy Carter
Jim Kelly
Val Kilmer
Joan Lunden
Liza Minnelli
Olivia Newton-John
Kenny Rogers

Alternates:

Julia Louis-Dreyfus
Michael J. Fox

Common name clarification: Michael Douglas is the actor - son of Kirk, Kenny Rogers is the singer, and Jim Kelly is the former NFL QB.

Okay, I have got to do better than my lousy 3 points in 2019. I feel especially worried for my poor alternative picks, who always seem to do a good job kicking off every year. There really should be a "So Close and Yet So Far" prize for the poster who has the most Alternatve Picks expire.
