Harry Dean Stanton -- Amazing Character Actor -- Dead at 91

Postby Mortuus no more » September 15th 2017, 6:04pm

One of my all-time favorite character actors, Harry Dean Stanton, has passed away; he was 91. Personally, my favorite role of his was "Toot-Toot," the grizzled but humorous prison Trustee in "The Green Mile." Like so many other great character actors, he was routinely a scene stealer in just about everything he performed. He was simply an amazing actor, and will be missed by a great many of film buffs who always enjoyed his portrayals. Godspeed, Harry Dean Stanton...

"Harry Dean Stanton, the actor with a gaunt, bedraggled look who labored in virtual obscurity for decades until a series of roles increased his visibility, including his breakthrough in Wim Wenders’ “Paris, Texas,” died of natural causes Friday in Los Angeles. He was 91.

The actor was also known for his roles in “Twin Peaks,” “Big Love,” “Pretty in Pink” and “Repo Man.”

He had a high-profile role as manipulative cult leader Roman Grant on HBO polygamy drama “Big Love,” which ran from 2006-11, and recently appeared as Carl Rodd in the “Twin Peaks” revival on Showtime.

His most recent film, “Lucky,” is set to be released by Magnolia on Sept. 29.

I thought that the original Alien got him.

Always enjoyed him in any flick. A good, long life.

He was great in Repo Man, one of my favorite flicks.

RIP, Bud
