I was sad to hear the news late last night that actor Dennis Hopper had lost his battle against prostate cancer. The often outrageous actor, both in his personal life and his on-screen performances was certainly one of those presences on a movie that you never knew what was going to happen next. He was especially good in movies like David Lynch’s Blue Velvet, Tarantino’s True Romance and to many more mainstream audiences, as the bomber / terrorist in Speed. “Pop quiz, hot-shot!”
He will be sadly missed.
