RIP Bill Paxton

A friend of mine on Facebook referred to Bill Paxton as the "Film Everyman".
He was always in something.  Sometimes a lead.  Sometimes supporting.  Sometimes a bad-ass cameo.  I loved him in Aliens.  Such a smart intelligent man playing a bad-ass grunt so beautifully.

Please be upstanding, an actor has departed the stage.

I liked him very much. A great character. He was hysterical in "True Lies" with Schwarzenegger and Jamie Lee Curtis. Everytime Arnie got near him he pissed his pants. He will be missed.

True Lies was a bravura performance for him.

As of today 3/7, they say he had a stroke after the operation for a heart valve replacement. 7 days after the operation. Too bad. He was a great actor. He will be missed.

Ciro. A real shame. He will be missed as you said.
