Tributes, everyone. Tributes.

Ricardo Montalban, who presided over TV's Fantasy Island as the all-knowing, vaguely mysterious Mr. Roarke, and menaced Captain Kirk in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan as the film's chest-baring villain, died today. He was 88.

Montalban's death was announced by a city council member from Los Angeles, the city the Mexican-born actor had worked in, and starred in, for more than 65 years.

Montalban won one Emmy, for the 1978 miniseries, How the West Was Won, and was presented with the Screen Actors Guild's Lifetime Achievement Award in 1994.
