dennis hopper – rest in peace

dennis hopper – rest in peace
May 29, 2010 MICHAEL KNUDSEN


oh there’s sad news to report today – after a long battle with cancer, actor dennis hopper (age 74) succumbed to his illness and passed away early this morning at his home in venice, CA – i just wrote about him a couple of weeks ago when he finally received his well-deserved star on hollywood blvd’s walk of fame (he got it just in the nick of time … people who pass on need to wait five years for a posthumous honor – like bea arthur – ugh) he had many memorable film roles but i’ll always think of him in one of my favorite movies, david lynch‘s 1986 masterpiece blue velvet in which he played psychopath frank booth (a golden globe nominated performance) who had a mommy complex plus an addiction to sniffing gas – his scenes are super disturbing (there’s a clip posted below) he was an excellent actor – and how could we forget 1969’s easy rider?! my thoughts & prayers go out to his family including his four children and two grandchildren! popbytes over & out for now … xoxo
