    NEW YORK (WCBS 880) - “Entertainment Tonight” is reporting the death of Oscar-nominated actor Tony Curtis at the age of 85.

    The show says a representative of his daughter, actress Jamie Lee Curtis, confirmed the death.

    Tony Curtis, born Bernard Schwartz in the Bronx, was nominated for an Oscar for his dramatic role in “The Defiant Ones” with Sidney Poitier.

    But he’s also known for his comedic acting in the 1959 movie “Some Like It Hot” with Marilyn Monroe and Jack Lemmon. Lemmon and Curtis are musicians who see a mob hit and disguise themselves as women to elude the gangsters who want to rub out any witnesses.

    Curtis is also known for his role in “Spartacus” with Kirk Douglas.

    Yeah, just heard on my way home this morning. I always loved him as an actor. If you ever watched or listened to any of his interviews he was a pretty funny, down to earth guy.
    We'll miss ya Tony!
