Powers Boothe, RIP

You guys know how much I love character actors.

Sadly, another one has passed on – Powers Boothe.  Yesterday, of natural causes.

He’s one of those guys whom I had difficulty remembering his name, but loved his work.

Most of you probably remember him as ‘Curly’ Bill Brocius from the epic film Tombstone.

But he was so much more.

Jim Jones, Sin City, The Avengers, Deadwood, Agents of Shield, Nashville, Red Dawn, and 24 among many others.  He did the voice-over for Con Air.

I’ll always have a fondness for Philip Marlowe-Private Eye and Rapid Fire (wherein he played opposite Brandon Lee).

You will indeed be missed.

  1. Great actor in a lot of great movies. My favorite though has to be the downed fighter pilot in Red Dawn.

  2. Excellent! I don’t remember him being ‘bad’ (or walking through a role) in anything.
    As always, great to see you.

  3. I always enjoyed his work, whenever I happened to see him.

  4. Really sorry to hear this. He was one of my favorites as a strong character actor. Never saw him just show up; he was always a big presence on screen.
