One of the Original Kings of Comedy, Bernie Mac rivaled Jamie Foxx as the most famous cast member of Players Club. He went on to become an A-list actor in Ocean's Eleven, Bad Santa and, of course, The Bernie Mac Show. Tragically, he died in 2008 of complications from pneumonia. His funeral in his native Chicago, which drew nearly 7,000 people, was a testament to how many lives he touched.
