Marlon Brando Dead

Legendary actor Marlon Brando, a two-time Oscar winner and a seven-time nominee, died Thursday in Los Angeles at the age of 80, the Associated Press reported, citing the actor's lawyer. The cause of death was not disclosed, although it was reported last year that he suffered from congestive heart failure. Brando received his first Oscar in 1954 for his performance in On the Waterfront, and his second 18 years later for The Godfather; he also received Oscar nominations for A Streetcar Named Desire, Viva Zapata, Julius Caesar, Sayonara, Last Tango in Paris, and A Dry White Season
