Transformers fans know him as "Bobby Bolivia" the used car salesman who sold Sam Witwicky his first car.  We were saddened to learn today that actor/comedian Bernie Mac died today at a Chicago hospital due to complications of pneumonia.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and fans for this tragic loss at far too young of an age. is reporting that Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen filming for the "first unit" is on a 4 week hiatus while Shia LaBeouf takes time for his hand to heal.

The Transformers Live Action Blog is reporting that an earlier report by Star Magazine is erroneous, Shia will not need an amputation of his left pinky finger.  All sorts of reports have been made by various sources some fact some fiction.  What has been confirmed:  Shia was not at fault for the accident which resulted in his injured left hand,  an oncoming car ran a red light before the collision.

AW MAN! Thats terrible! He was a good actor. It saddens me to think that I'll never hear that laugh of his again. A bad day to be a fan of transformers.

I want to know how someone the age of 50, seemingly in otherwise perfect health can die from complications of pneumonia????? What a horrible way to go. Rest in *PEACE* B. Mac!

Pneumonia can be deadly, even though there are people that can survive it without much problem. Although people that get through pneumonia without much problem usually are younger than 50. Still though, I was shocked by this news. He was a good actor and funny. He will be missed.
