he always looked a bit older than he really was

Norman Lloyd, 105 today. (Not a surprise in the parts of the Internet I frequent.) Surprise: He is reported to be attached to a pilot in development for ABC.

Mário Zagallo. Only 88, mind you, I thought he was older.

Dick Cavett. 82 but I would have thought older.

Chanson singer Juliette Gréco. She joined the French Resistance in her teens, turned 92 this year.

M. Emmet Walsh, who I genuinely thought had died until I saw Knives Out last night. (He's 84.)

I get him and J.T. Walsh mixed up all the time.

Also, I knew J.T. was dead, but thought he had died, like, in 2014 or something. Not 1998!

And Rod Laver, 81. What a doubles pair

If we're partnering up, Fred Stolle (two Slams w/Rosewall '68-'69) and Roy Emerson (three Slams w/Laver '61-'71) are still knocking around too. Rosewall/Laver were US Open finalists in '73. Almost all of the Aussie greats from that period are still going. Lew Hoad (who died in 1994) is maybe the only one missing?
