I helped keep all 16 of last year's aged picks alive for another full year, but they can't all hold out for another year (although I hope they do!) I've added Mel Brooks, who was inexplicably left off last year's list, and removed Peggy Dow from the alternates.

As I said last year, I'm playing the odds, not going for points, even though that strategy didn't exactly pay off! The maximum I could get, if all of these wonderful actors dropped dead in early January, is 41. The first four are over 100 already. (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.")

Norman Lloyd
Olivia de Havilland
Kirk Douglas
Marsha Hunt
Carol Channing
Betty White
Carl Reiner
Doris Day
Eva Marie Saint
Dick van Dyke
June Lockhart
Angela Lansbury
Mel Brooks

Alternates:
Sidney Poitier
Joe Turkel
Conrad Janis

Nobody from my 2018 list kicked the bucket this year, so I'm just going to roll 'em over to 2019. (I guess that's the game I'm playing with my group of relatively young picks. High risk/high reward.)

Clean List

Heather Mack
Chief Keef
Lil Durk
Jereme Richmond
Louis King Johnson Jr.
Jesus Alfredo Guzman Salazar
Jeremiah Ratliff
Giuliana Rancic
Jesse Jackson Jr.
Jose Canseco
Melodie Gliniewicz
William Perry
Joe Walsh

No alternates... will take my chances that all the above 13 are still alive and valid picks!


With Commentary. Current age (or thereabouts) in parentheses:
  • Heather Mack (22) -- Co-perpetrator in the Bali suitcase murder case. Serving prison time in Indonesia.
  • Chief Keef (23) -- a/k/a Keith Cozart, perpetually troubled "drill" rapper from Chicago. For a while he was popping up in the local news about monthly for yet another DUI, drug charge, shooting incident, etc.
  • Lil Durk (26) -- a/k/a Durk Banks, another drill rapper from Chicago that seems to find annual trouble with gun charges. His manager was gunned down in 2015.
  • Jereme Richmond (27) -- Former University of Illinois basketball player frequently in trouble with the law.
  • Louis King Johnson Jr. (31) -- Chicago-based drill rapper better known as "King Louie" or "King L." Shot in the head in December 2015.
  • Jesus Alfredo Guzman Salazar (31) -- Son of drug kingpin Joaquín Guzmán.
  • Jeremiah Ratliff (37) -- Defensive lineman fired from the Chicago Bears in October 2015 after bizarre behavior and outbursts. Committed DUI a couple years ago.
  • Giuliana Rancic (44) -- TV personality who has battled cancer on and off.
  • Jesse Jackson Jr. (53) -- Son of famed civil rights leader. Former Chicago Congressman. Has been battling bi-polar disorder and depression for several years.
  • Jose Canseco (54) -- Former baseball player with penchant for risky behavior.
  • Melodie Gliniewicz (54) -- Widow of Joe Gliniewicz, a cop from Chicago's northwest suburbs who committed suicide (but staged things to appear as if he was killed in the line duty) to cover up fraud. Melodie is in trouble for her involvement in the scheme.
  • William "The Fridge" Perry (56) -- Former Chicago Bear.
  • Joe Walsh (57) -- Former congressman representing northern suburbs. Current talk radio blowhard in Chicago.

Almost forgot to do this! Didn't have time to do much research, so kept a bunch from my list from last year and filled in the gaps left by the ones that shuffled off this year.

Clean list:

Bill Cosby
Jill Gascoine
Clive James
Valerie Harper
Ronnie Wood
Olivia Newton-John
Linda Nolan
Leah Bracknell
Artie Lange
Shannen Doherty
Demi Lovato
Pete Davidson
6ix9ine

Alternates:
Kevin Spacey
Albert Finney


With Comments:

Bill Cosby - good riddance if he goes
Jill Gascoine - holdover
Clive James - holdover, for the umpteenth time, I am making this guy immortal
Valerie Harper - holdover, this is the year, I feel it!
Ronnie Wood - holdover
Olivia Newton-John - holdover, looking rough for her
Linda Nolan - holdover
Leah Bracknell - holdover
Artie Lange - had him on my list several years ago, time to give him another chance
Shannen Doherty - holdover
Demi Lovato - this was a tough year for her
Pete Davidson - life ain't Grande for poor ol' Pete anymore
6ix9ine - the rapper also known as Daniel Hernandez

Alternates:
Kevin Spacey - hitting hard times, probably too big an ego to off himself, though
Albert Finney - very likely to die now that I've removed him from my main list for the first time in five years

I'm dropping a few survivors off of last years list. Could be a disaster.

Held over from last year:

1 Jerry Remy- Baseball player and announcer. He has survived cancer so many times that I'm not sure he can die.

2 Clive James- author, poet and much more. He was about to die years ago and is still going.

3 Holly Rowe- Sportscaster. She seems to be doing much better now. Keeping her on to help her cause.

4 Mark Gastineau- NFL player. Claims many football related health issues. Still an asshole.

5 Christopher Ayres- Voice over artist/ cartoon actor

New for this year:

6 John Andretti- former race car driver

7 Benny Mardones- singer of one of the creepiest songs ever. And it went to #1. Twice.

8 Beth Chapman- Mrs Dog the Bounty Hunter

9 David Koch- Half of the Koch Brothers. His undisclosed health issues might just have been cover for being kicked out of his own company but I'm taking a chance.

10 Abby Lee Miller- Dance Mom

11 Shaun Weiss- actor. Not-so Mighty Duck

12 Matt Millen- NFL player, coach, broadcaster. I thought he was going to be my shoe in but his prospects are looking up.

13 Sandra Day O'Connor- Supremes


Jerry Remy
Clive James
Holly Rowe
Mark Gastineau
Christopher Ayres
John Andretti
Benny Mardones
Beth Chapman
David Koch
Abby Lee Miller
Shaun Weiss
Matt Millen
Sandra Day O'Connor

Alternates:
The Amazing Jonathan
Chris Mortensen
Akebono Taro

Okay, Vorlon, it would have been nice to have a clean list, but it's entered now, except for one pick. Which James E. Carter are you selecting?

Richard O'Sullivan, British actor (born 1944) - my ninth year playing this card. One of us has got to die eventually.
Lee Radziwell, American socialite (born 1933) - Featured on my list eight times. Just my luck - to pick a Kennedy family member that doesn't die tragically young.
Albert Finney, American actor (born 1936) - despite his seemingly robust health.
Clive James, Australian author (born 1939) - Announced he was terminally ill in 2010. DP-tease.
Alan Jones, Australian broadcaster (born 1941) - This one is more wishful thinking.
Jeannie Little, Australian television personality (born 1938) - Fond memories of watching her on daytime TV with my mother when I was small, now sullied by betting on her death.
Bert Newton, Australian television personality (born 1938) - health and mobility issues, and now his 44 year marriage is in peril due to his gambling addiction, according to the highly credible gossip mags. I think Bert's done.
Valerie Harper, American actor (born 1939) - six years into a terminal diagnosis, apparently drinking from the same water source as Clive James.
The Amazing Johnathon, American entertainer (born 1958) - also drinking from the Harper/James well.
Ben Cousins, retired Australian professional footballer (born 1978) - ongoing drug issues. Either heading for an early grave, or may stumble upon the Keith Richards immortality cocktail.
Bob Hawke, former Australian Prime Minister (born 1929) - Recent conflicting news reports about his health.
Priscilla Presley, American actor (born 1945) - Random pick from the senior's list.
Olivia Newton John, English-Australian singer (born 1948) - third cancer battle.

Alts:
John Laws, Australian broadcaster (born 1935)
Judy Moran, Australian crime family matriarch (born 1944)

OK, that explains why you're posting your list with nearly 4 hours to go, when you normally put your list up with about 2 minutes to go. Gotta admit I was startled to see your list appear so early in the evening!

I could say that sportsmanship is what will keep me from vulturing some of your picks, but in actuality, I'm tired and I'm gonna go to bed. (Can't believe I'm saying this at 9:30pm on NYE.) Enjoy your night off tomorrow night!
