I’ll always remember him for The Return of Josey Wales. I’m not sure what he was thinking when he made that but I am sad to hear this. R.I.P
This is the first time I’ve ever heard that a sequel was made to Josey Wales, after taking a look, I gotta agree, why on earth did he even agree to making that film?
RIP Powers Boothe
Known for his roles in Tombstone (Cosmatos, 1993), Frailty (Paxton, 2002), Sin City (Miller/Rodriguez, 2005) and in TV shows Deadwood and 24, among others.
Died peacefully in his sleep. He was 68.
I will remember Clifton James for “Cool Hand Luke” and “Eight Men Out,” Powers Boothe for “Southern Comfort,” and Michael Parks for “Then Came Bronson.”
Losing Tomas Milian is a staggering blow to us. Besides Enzo G. Castellari, Franco Nero, Garko and Eastwood, who’s left?
Terence Hill? He’s still going.
Robert Woods, George Hilton and Claudia Cardinale are still kicking
Edit: Also Ennio Morricone, Guido and Maurizo De Angelis, and Stelvio Cipriani. Annibale, Raoul, and Edda are also alive.
I’ll also mention that death it’s a factor of life. These people are all wonderful to watch and admire, but generations come and go, and when their times come, at least we’ll be able to enjoy them on the silver screen, and their memories will be carried on and cherished by all of us.
Lou Castel & Andrea Giordana.
Tony Anthony turns 80 this year, and Lloyd Battista turned 80 on Sunday apparently.
R.I.P Powers Boothe always remember Southern Comfort.
I think Clint had planned to make one but it never took off. Michael Parks directed it himself and did a terrible job. it’s definitely one of the most boring westerns I’ve watched.
An actor with great screen presence. He was exceptionally good in Extreme Prejudice, Southern Comfort and Tombstone. R I P
Chris Cornell, lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave has died suddenly, aged 52. He also performed You Know My Name, the theme song to the James Bond reboot Casino Royale (Campbell, 2006).
Shocking news. I love Audioslave, and 52 is no age at all.
Sad. No one will sing like you anymore Chris.
Hell, somehow with Chris a part of my youth also goes,
I Will wait for you there like a stone
Sir Roger Moore, the longest-serving incumbent in the James Bond role, has died after a short battle with cancer. He was 89.
A great innings, but a great shame nonetheless. A vodka martini in front of Live and Let Die and For Your Eyes Only at the weekend for me, I think. Might try to fit The Wild Geese in somewhere, too.
My favorite actor. Gone. After yesterday, this really has been a shit start to the week. RIP Roger.
Shout At The Devil was my favorite Moore film, with him and Marvin, a great team up.
My favourite Bond by far. Charming man who I had the pleasure to see in one of his shows last year. The guy had humour and he even directed at himself, a rare breed these days in which people do not seem to adhere much to nowadays.
He was my favorite Bond, I used to watch his films on VHS every morning when I was younger. I really loved how much fun he had with the role. It’s gonna be a little darker in the world without him here.
Always a gentleman. RIP, Roger.
I got to meet him a few years ago as well at a QnA in a small function. Around 40 or so people, but afterward, most of them left, while around 10 of us went to grab a drink before leaving, and he joined us for a bit, to chat and have a good laugh. I have to claims to fame, I made Roger Moore laugh so much he almost spilled his drink, and back in the late 70’s, my uncle worked for a computer company which delivered some of their hardware to Pinewood Studios, when they were filming one of Moore’s 70s Bond films. He invited them to stay, and my Uncle had lunch with him too.
Possibly one of the most humble celebrities I have ever had the good chance to meet.
Yes, very sad to hear of Sir Roger’s passing. I never met him but from every account I have ever had from people who did he was a genuine gent. R.I.P.
