Ich trauere um Provence :( Noch ein weiterer User der keine Zeit/Lust mehr fürs forum hat.
Ich werde dich vermissen. Werde mich stets an dich erinnern wenn ich in Splatoon 2 Gegner splätte.



Ruhe in Frieden.

Bill Paxton, Versatile 'Big Love,' 'Twister' Actor, Dead at 61
Golden Globe-nominated actor dies following complications from surgery
Bill Paxton, the veteran actor who starred in Big Love and appeared in films like Aliens, Twister and Apollo 13, died Saturday following complications from surgery. He was 61.

"It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Bill Paxton has passed away due to complications from surgery," a representative for the family said in a statement to Rolling Stone.

"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."

Born in Fort Worth, Texas in 1955, Paxton's start in Hollywood came behind the camera as a filmmaker before appearing in small roles in films like Stripes, Commando and The Terminator in the first half of the Eighties.

Before achieving marquee status in blockbusters like Apollo 13 and Twister, Paxton managed to transform his secondary roles into memorable turns, like his obnoxious older brother in Weird Science, his gabby police officer in Predator 2, the marine Hudson in Aliens and a sinister vampire in Near Dark.

After appearing in a bit part as a punk in The Terminator, Paxton became a favorite of director James Cameron, appearing in small-but-memorable roles in that filmmaker's Aliens, True Lies, Titanic and the documentary Ghosts in the Abyss.

Following roles in Tombstone, Trespass and Frank and Jesse, Paxton was cast to star in the 1995 blockbuster Twister, cementing his status from unforgettable character actor to leading man. Over the past two decades, the actor also starred in A Simple Plan, the Spy Kids series, Nightcrawler and Frailty, which he also directed.

Paxton will likely most be remembered for his starring role of Bill Henrickson, a modern-day polygamist living quietly in the suburbs, in the HBO drama Big Love, a role which earned Paxton three Best Actor Golden Globe nominations. The series ran for five seasons. In 2012, Paxton was nominated for an Emmy for his leading role in the miniseries Hatfields & McCoys.

Paxton was starring in the CBS reboot of Training Day at the time of his death. 

"Bill Paxton was notoriously one of the nicest people in the industry. He also gave us some of the all-time most iconic movie moments," Jordan Peele tweeted of the actor.


Several of Paxton's co-stars also remembered the actor. Cary Elwes, who appeared as Paxton's tornado-chasing adversary in Twister, tweeted, "Very sad to hear about Bill Paxton. His talent, enthusiasm and energy were unique."

Rob Lowe, who played Jesse James along Paxton's Frank James in Frank and James, wrote, "Devastated by the sudden loss of my close friend and one of the finest actors in the business, Bill Paxton. Renaissance man, raconteur and uniquely American national treasure. His filmography speaks for itself. His friendship was a blessing. In his memory, on this Oscar Sunday, watch One False Move or A Simple Plan to see this lovely leading man, at his finest."

Sehr schade. Wenn man einigermaßen Musikbewandert ist, sollte man Chris's Schaffen gestoßen sein. Ich habe Soundgarden in den 90ern über meinen Bruder kennen gelernt.

Mittlerweile ist Selbstmord bestätigt. Cornell hatte am 17.05. noch ein Konzert und erhängte sich dann in der Nacht zum 18.05.

Soundgarden war früher eine meiner Liebelingsbands, ich mochte Chris Cornells Soloprojekte aber ebenso, war ein toller Sänger und Musiker.

Ruhe in Frieden auch an die anderen Verstorbenen des Threads, Roger Moore hatte ein "schönes Alter", trotzdem traurig wenn so eine Persönlichkeit geht.

Moore verkörperte die 70er jahre perfekt

weniger ernst, humorvoller, doppeldeutiger, sein Bond passte perfekt auf dieses Jahrzehnt und stellte den Kontrast zu Connerys Bond dar, der seinerseits perfekt in die 60er passte

durch seine filme bleibt er unsterblich

wenigstens ging es wohl relativ schnell ohne zu grosses leiden
