Here's a few more just to piss-off PaulyP. ;-)

From my friends at hollywoodmemoir.com

John Paul Getty III (November 4, 1956 – February, 5 2011) was the eldest of four children of Paul Getty and Gail Harris, the grandson of oil tycoon Jean Paul Getty, and the father of actor Balthazar Getty.

On July 10 1973, John Getty III was kidnapped in the Piazza Farnese in Rome. The kidnappers cut off his ear and send it to a newspaper. Getty III was found alive in southern Italy on December 15, 1973, shortly after the ransom ($2.9 million) was paid. Several of the kidnappers were apprehended. Most of the ransom money was never recovered

Getty was an alcoholic and drug addict. In 1981, taking a cocktail of valium, methadone and alcohol resulted in liver failure and a stroke which left Getty quadriplegic and nearly blind

Death of John Paul Getty III
On February 5, 2011, Getty died at Wormsley, his home in Buckinghamshire, England after a long illness. He had been in poor health since his 1981 drug overdose. He is survived by his son.

Just wondering what the hell JPG III had to do with the entertainment industry other than siring a D list actor. The write up on the index page says this is to be about those who were in the entertainment business.
Still, I pass along my sincere condolences to his family.

Why did you post it? What did HE have to do with entertainment?
Did you even notice he died almost a week ago?

I do however, accept that you're embarassed.
