Bill Paxton R.I.P.

Bill Paxton ist überraschend im Alter von nur 61 Jahren an Komplikationen nach einer Herz-OP gestorben.

Paxton hat in tausend Klassikern mitgespielt, spezialisiert auf Druffie und Irre, seine berühmtesten Genre-Auftritte waren wohl Private Hudson in Aliens und der blauhaarige Punk im Terminator. Später wirkte Paxton noch in Klassikern wie Phantom Commando, Streets of Fire oder Near Dark und schließlich Blockbustern wie Apollo 13 und Titanic mit, aber auch später in den großartigen Nightcrawler und Edge of Tomorrow.

Demnächst ist er nochmal im Kino in der Überwachungs-SciFi-Literaturverfilmung von Dave Eggers The Circle mit Emma Watson und im Thriller Mean Dreams (Trailer unten), der ganz großartig aussieht.

Danke für die ganzen Badasses, Bill. Sad day.
