Here's some news absolutely no one will dig: Roger Hill — who is best known for playing Cyrus in 1979's beloved cult classic The Warriors — has died at age 65. According to Variety, Hill's 20 years of acting experience included many plays and a two-year stint on ABC's long-running soap opera One Life to Live. But Hill's most iconic role by far came at the beginning of The Warriors, when he delivered several of the film's most memorable lines — including "Can you count, suckers?" and "Can you dig it?" — in his instantly recognizable baritone. Pour one out for Cyrus as you watch his immortal speech one more time. --Scott Meslow
