its a shame, but this had been coming for a long time. He's publicly had cancer for a long time, and has looked like hell since I dunno, puberty(I'm just guessing he never, ever needed a fake ID). Gonna miss him though, the guy practically had gravitas pouring out of his ears. I loved seeing him tweak that image as well. He played a dashing, romantic lead in Roger Corman's Frankenstein Unbound (with a love scene against, against not with Bridget Fonda), it didn't remotely work but I'll be darned if he didn't nearly pull it off.

I liked him in V for Vendetta (of all movies). The movie was campy but he grounded it pretty well. As much as he could at least.

His believable zealotry was believable. I love Jeremy Irons, but the dude could take some lessons from Hurt on how to chew scenery and keep it from going off into the paint.

Hurt was too good at being a part of the movie. For the longest time I'd see him in a movie, think he was great, and not realize he's the guy I thought was great in another movie.
I bet he was a fucking trooper to work with, too. He seems like one of those guys who could be awesome without being an utter dickhead about it.


I'll be watching some Jim Henson Storyteller episodes this week, and probably crying.

I never got enough of Asia as a kid. Their first album was of one of my summers. We'd flip between that and Diver Down.

Clyde had no health insurance and Prince fronted a lot of his treatment.

Arguably the most influential drummer of all time and the guy didn't have health insurance.

Ah man, this one stings.

I'm sure he was pretty decent guy, but holy crap, did he ever play the best abrasive assholes of all time. He was just so good at it. And he could do salt of the earth and decent to the core as well as anybody. He was like if Henry Fonda actually acted like how Henry Fonda would behave.

I also would have liked to see him take another swing at directing a genre film. Haven't seen Frailty in ages, but there was a lot to like about it.

Shit man.

68 years old. Brain cancer. This is a loss of a major talent, someone who defined comics, and managed to make his work sing.

Powers Boothe, owner of one of the best voices ever, lead of far too few films, and character actor Hall of Famer passed away at 68. Hopefully cursing awesomely as he went.
