The world lost one of its most entertaining directors Sunday afternoon when Tony Scott, 68, jumped to his death from the Vincent Thomas bridge in Los Angeles, Calif.
His body of work includes some of the greatest — and most loved — films of all time. Along with his brother, Ridley, the British-born filmmaker also co-produced some of the most popular series on TV, including “The Good Wife” and “Numb3rs.”
