Bill Paxton Dies at 61  Cry

My memory of him is from the spectacular neo-noir A Simple Plan (1998)

I was just writing about him... Really sad news: although I haven't seen anything of his recently, he was one of the faces I always remembered most fondly from my (movie) childhood. Cry

May he rest in peace. Cry

This is a shock, because 61 is young.

Love, loved, loved him in True Lies. And he was an essential element of Nightcrawler. He was capable, it seemed, of years more of good work. A shame.

yeah, I saw him in Nightcawler as well. He was real good.

And we all saw him in Titanic, though none of us will admit to watching Titanic  Wink

He was a very good actor.

Sharon and I once decided to try watching it all the way through. We never made it. And not because it was a bad movie; just cuz we kept getting ... distracted

Because of his importance to cinema, he needs his own thread.
