Now that I think about it, it seems that the late Patrick Swayze had been in a long career slump when he was striken with the cancer that killed him. I know he played in a short-lived A&E series called "The Beast" a year or so before he died, but what notable movies did he play in post-"Point Break"?

To Wong Foo... was noteable, at least.. It's a niche movie, but yeah.. He wasn't exactly an A-lister at the time.

Roadhouse was noteworthy for a Jeff Healey cameo. Or was that "early" Swayze?

He was in Donnie Darko as the self help guru with a dark secret. I think Patrick was great in everything ge did. I also believe had he lived he would have gotten hired for an Oscar worthy role in a drama. Sad this was not to be.

His appearance on SNL was great too. Especially the dance off with Chris Farley.

Yeah.. I thought about mentioning Donnie Darko, but when I looked it up.. I wasn't entirely sure it qualified. It was REALLY pretty minor. But.. I'll certainly give you that one.

The Beast was awesome. It really sucked that he didn't live to do a second season. Great, great show.

A&E canceled it due to low ratings.

1989, when he was at his peak. I think his career decline started in the 1990s.

A&E sucks, too. They also cancelled Longmire (supposedly because they didn't own it), hence its move to Netflix.
