RIP Jackie Cooper (aka Perry White)

Jackie Cooper, known to Superman fans everywhere as Perry White in all 4 of the Christopher Reeve Superman films, passed away yesterday at the age of 88 due to a sudden bout of illness.  As a child actor, Cooper also starred in Our Gang,  was nominated for an Academy Award at age 9 for his role in Skippy (the youngest actor to ever be nominated) and directed several episodes of the Superboy TV show from 1988-1992. 

RIP Jackie.  I'll never call you "Sugar."
