Dennis Hopper, 1936-2010

By now you've probably heard about the death of actor Dennis Hopper, who died of prostate cancer yesterday at the age of 74. I was somewhat surprised to see just how many movies he appeared in. Sure, I knew about the early appearance in Rebel Without a Cause, the famous portrayal in Easy Rider, and even later works like Hoosiers. But I had forgotten that he was in True Grit and Cool Hand Luke. On the other hand, I'm glad I didn't even know before now about the existence of a Super Mario Bros. movie.

I don't know if TCM have planned a tribute for him. However, Hoosiers was already on the schedule, for 8:00 PM Tuesday. And the Fox Movie Channel often runs Speed.
