R.I.P. Dennis Hopper...............

I just heard that Dennis Hopper passed on after a battle with prostrate cancer. Mr. Hopper is of course best known for his role in movie Easy Rider but his career was much more varied and colorful. I remember best, his part in the movie Apocalypse Now! as the drugged out, crazed photojournalist as well as the bad guy he played in Blue Velvet.

Mr. Hopper did have his demons. He took more drugs than a lab rat and had a deep and long lasting love affair with booze, but in the later part of his life he mastered his addictions and became his own man. He lived his life to the fullest and his contributions to the acting craft will be missed.

Depiste a somewhat tumoltuous life, I always did admire his craft. May he find the peace that sometimes eluded him here on eareth.

word verif: battles - yes, sometime it is.
