William English, 91. Participated in the development of the computer mouse.

https://www.nytimes.com/2020/07/31/tech ... at-91.html

Image
After Mr. Engelbart had envisaged the computer mouse and drawn a rough sketch of it on a notepad, Mr. English built it in the mid-1960s. Housed inside a small pinewood case, the device consisted of two electrical mechanisms, called potentiometers, that tracked the movement of two small wheels as they moved across a desktop. They called it a mouse because of the way the computer’s on-screen cursor, called a CAT, seemed to chase the device’s path.
Oh, and:
As they were developing the system, both Mr. English and Mr. Engelbart were part of the government-funded L.S.D. tests conducted by a nearby lab called the International Foundation of Advanced Study. Both took the psychedelic as part of a sweeping effort to determine whether it could “open the mind” and foster creativity.

Spoiler:
In the commentary to The Thing done by Russell and Carpenter, Russell loves Brimley's performance, especially that line when he is losing it.

Keith David is an underrated actor. Fantastic in the also underrated Dead Presidents. He can play any age, and probably most thought he is actually bald. Hell, you have to admire someone who gets to tell Jennifer Connelly, "Well, it's not gonna suck itself!"

This was his first actual film:

Carroll Hardy, 87. The only player who ever pinch hit for Ted Williams. Also pinch hit for Carl Yastrzemski and Roger Maris. Rest of his career was mediocre.

Kamala Harris.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamala_(wrestler)
James Harris (May 28, 1950 – August 9, 2020) was an American professional wrestler, better known by the ring name Kamala. Nicknamed "The Ugandan Giant", Kamala portrayed a fearsome and simpleminded Ugandan who wrestled barefoot in war paint and a loincloth, and approached the ring wearing an African mask and carrying a spear and shield. He is best known for his appearances with the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in the mid-1980s and early 1990s

But did he get a hit?
