👓 Ricky Jay, Magician and 'Boogie Nights' Actor, Dies at 72 | New York Times

Read Ricky Jay, Magician and 'Boogie Nights' Actor, Dies at 72 (The Hollywood Reporter)
In addition to his long career as a magician, he also appeared in such films as 'Magnolia' (1999) as the narrator, 'Tomorrow Never Dies' (1997) as a cyber terrorist and 'Boogie Nights' (1997).
I had friends who represented Rick Jay when I was at CAA. I later had the privilege of working with him as a consultant on Heartbreakers, when he had me out to the Magic Castle several times as a guest.

I don’t think there’s anyone living or dead who had a better collection or mastery of magic and related arts than Ricky Jay did. I hope his legacy and library is well supported.
