Willie Garson

Michael K. Williams' New York Times obituary racked up 2.8 million views, while Norm Macdonald and Willie Garson each had around 1 million views for their obits

The New York Times obituaries editor William McDonald revealed that data to The Washington Post in an article about the rush to publish obits online in the internet era -- and publications stocking up on pre-written obits. (The Times currently has 1,850 obits ready to go when a famous person, such as the recently deceased Colin Powell, dies. The Hollywood Reporter has about 800 pre-written obits.) But pre-written obits don't apply to Williams, Macdonald and Garson, who've all surprisingly died in recent months. While Williams' obit drew 2.8 million views, Macdonald's obit surpassed 1 million and Sex in the City's Garson's obit approached 1 million, according to McDonald.

Sarah Jessica Parker Says Costar Willie Garson’s Death Is ‘Unbearable’ in Moving Tribute

Sarah Jessica Parker just shared a moving tribute to her Sex and the City costar and friend, Willie Garson. “It’s been unbearable,” Parker shared on September 24, three days after Garson died at 57 years old. “Sometimes silence is a statement. Of the gravity. The anguish. The magnitude of the loss of a 30 + year friendship. A real friendship that allowed for secrets, adventure, a shared professional family, truth, concerts, road trips, meals, late night phone calls, a mutual devotion to parenthood and all the heartaches and joy that accompany, triumphs, disappointments, fear, rage, and years spent on sets (most especially Carrie’s apartment) and laughing late into the night as both Stanford and Carrie and Willie and SJ.”
