Dude, "Frailty."

Bill Paxton directed and starred in it.

One of the best thrillers of the last 30 years.

Wow, that makes one feel old. I mean, he was in the MV "Shadows of the Night" with Pat Benatar, that was during my first undergrad, he's my age, he's so young!

...............and then I remember just how old I am.

So sorry to hear that. He was one of my favorite actors. We've been enjoying his new show, Training Day.

Bummer. He could play all kinds of roles well. My favorite was "Frailty", but he was also outstanding in a completely different role in "True Lies."

I hope they don't try to continue his show training day w/o him .
I don't see how they could consider continuing Training Day without him. I really liked him in this show. I wonder how many unaired episodes they have. R I P Bill.

I'd been trying to remember the name of this movie all morning...thank you. This was one of the best roles he played, imo. Very creepy.

Loved him in Twister, Aliens, and so many other roles. Hollywood lost a truly dynamic actor, far too soon.

R.I.P., Bill.

WTH!?! Uh, I am really bummed now!

Him and Helen Hunt made a movie like Twister actually enjoyable!

RIP Mr. Paxton
