R.I.P Uncle Ben - Cliff Robertson Passes Away...

The Oscar-winning actor behind Uncle Ben in the original 2002 Spider-Man film, Cliff Robertson, has passed away at the age of 88.

Robertson had other claims from Oscar-winning performance in Charly as the title character, a mentally-handicapped man who, with brain-boosting medication, was able to overcome his problems with tragic results. He was also in PT 109 as John F. Kennedy (hand-picked by the man himself and was highly praised in the role). On the small screen, Robertson made a guest appearance on "The Twilight Zone" in an episode where he played a ventriloquist with a dummy that is more than meets the eye. He also was a guest-villain on "Batman" as the criminal cowboy Shame (parody of Shane) and fought against the Dynamic Duo.

Cliff died of natural causes in New York one day after his 88th birthday.

R.I.P Cliff...
