Bernie Mac (October 5, 1957–August 9, 2008) was an American actor and comedian. You may have heard of him. He starred in a Fox sitcom with the surprising title of The Bernie Mac Show. His last film role was in the movie "Soul Men", which was also Isaac Hayes last film. Strangely, Hayes died the next day on August 10. He was pronounced dead from complications due to pneumonia August 9, 2008. That rare pnemonia is known as sarcoidosis, a rare autoimmune disease that causes inflammation in tissue, most often in the lungs. RIP, Bobby Bolivia... we'll miss you.
