I remember seeing the movie "Charlie Bartlett" almost a decade ago and thinking how talented and special Yelchin was.  This is an awful tragedy, and may he rest in peace.

@SeaMaiden...Anton was in Star Trek, not Star Wars.  Nonetheless, it is sad. 😢

Some automotive sites are wondering if the Jeep's recalled gear shifter had anything to do with Yelchin's death. 1.1M vehicles were recalled in April.
