I can't believe I actually knew the answer to this. They all donated their bodies to medical science.

Hey Hilly Blue, isn't Wikipedia great? Well that was almost fun.

Hilly Blue said...

Yes, it is. I watched Dead Ringer about a month ago and was looking up the actors on Wikipedia when I came across the entry on George Macready. I remember the day very distinctly, because the exhibit "Bodies: the Exhibition" was also in Atlanta and I was thinking to myself: "What if you left your body to science and it ends up on display like this." That was the same day I visited Wikipedia and saw the article on Macready and thought to myself..."What if that exhibit has any stars in it?" Needless to say, I'm being cremated.
