Blah    

OK...besides being Sly's son and a part that his dad got for him, what has he done in entertainment.

And yet, TMZ doesn't even report that Richard Zanuck, the Oscar winning producer of such famous films as "Jaws", "Driving Miss Daisy" and "The Sting" has also died.

Sometimes I wonder about you TMZ...

It's frustratingly sad to know someone who was undoubtedly loved died from something that is 100% preventable. Very sorry to hear.
