R.I.P. Bill Paxton

http://people.com/movies/bill-paxton...urgery-age-61/

Quote:
Emmy-winning actor Bill Paxton died due to complications from surgery, PEOPLE confirms.

“It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Bill Paxton has passed away due to complications from surgery,” a family representative said in a statement. “A loving husband and father, Bill began his career in Hollywood working on films in the art department and went on to have an illustrious career spanning four decades as a beloved and prolific actor and filmmaker. Bill’s passion for the arts was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth and tireless energy were undeniable. We ask to please respect the family’s wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their adored husband and father.”

The Texas native, who won an Emmy for his work in the TV mini-series Hatfields and McCoys, began acting in the 1970s. His earliest acting credits include minor roles in blockbusters such as Terminator (1984) and Aliens (1986).

Paxton’s notable performances include playing Morgan Earp in Tombstone (1993), Fred Haise in Apollo 13 (1995), the lead role in the 1996 hit Twister and as treasure hunter Brock Lovett in Titanic (1997).

His television credits include a lead role in HBO’s Big Love as well as Hatfields and McCoys.


The actor had two children and was married to his second wife.

Paxton’s son was recently tapped to join the actor in his new CBS drama.

Goddamit it 2017! You're just like 2016! Stop killing people 2016-2017! Stop it!

One of these days I know Stan Lee or Adam West or William Shatner will be the next to go, and that will be a sad, sad day.

Damn you 2017. Damn you to hell!

I've barely seen his movies. The only ones I know are Titanic - which I just learned recently he was Mr. Lovett...and Slipstream, which I only watched for Bob Peck. It needed a good MYST3K thrashing, I can tell you that.

Still, sorry for the people who were his fans. Game over, man.

I really liked Bill Paxton. I was so happy to see him in Edge of Tomorrow; it seemed like it had been a while since he was in a big movie like that. I had hoped to see him in future movies. Sad.

For a good long while I was obsessed with the HBO series, "Big Love." He was the main protagonist on that.

Yeah, I really liked his chemistry with Tom Skerritt and Yaphet Kotto, personally. Very underrated.
