Sad news to report as Anton Yelchin has passed away at the young age of 27. TMZ reports that the actor was found pinned between his car and a brick mailbox at his home around 1am earlier today after failing to show for a rehearsal hours before. No foul play is suspected.

Yelchin is perhaps best known for his role as Chekov in the new Star Trek films which began in 2009 but the actor had been working steadily since the age of 9, appearing most recently in the thriller Green Room earlier this year. His other credits include 2009’s Terminator: Salvation and 2011’s indie hit Like Crazy which took top honors at that year’s Sundance Film Festival. He completed roles in five movies before his death, including next month’s Star Trek Beyond.

My heartfelt condolences go out to Mr. Yelchin’s family and friends.
