He was 74. I really thought he was a great actor. :(

What a sad incident, he was a great actor. I still remember him vividly in Blue Velvet.


He was one of the very rare cool ones that could maintain a respectable Hollywood career.

Rest in peace!

RIP Dennis.

Easy Rider (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easy_Rider). One of the best films ever made.

Damn right he was brilliant. Easy Rider is one of my favourite films, everything about it was perfectly pulled off. Sad to see a legend go.

Terrible news.. it's always more sad to lose someone who has a unique character I find.

He was a good actor. His best role had to be in Waterworld. At least that is the only movie I can name that I have seen him in. Though I know I have seen him in others.

Given the amount of drugs he consumed 74 is pretty good I would say.

Hopper was an absolutely brilliant actor, and such a uniquely talented one. His role in Apocalypse Now was genius. What a loss. :(

Oh yea. The Photojournalist. GREAT role.

Hard to do too considering everybody was taking Acid.

An amazing career and an amazing life. Rest In Peace.

My personal favourite was Land Of The Dead, although Apocalypse Now is a close runner.

He'll be sorely missed but not forgotten.

Sad to read. Was hoping he'd pull through, but I've no doubt he packed more living into each of those 74 years than many people do in a lifetime. He'll always live on in some of the great films he's appeared in.

You might be the only person that saw Waterworld. :p

Don't let the bus go below 50 Jack or they all die.

The rule of 3, Art, Gary, and now Dennis.

I've seen him in Speed and Waterworld. I've seen Apocalypse Now, but I don't remember the film at all.

Speed was good though.

RIP.

Here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Nf9IkoxwMs&feature=youtube_gdata) he is with Gorillaz in "Fire Coming Out of a Monkey's Head."

He was awesome.

What? 74 is a lifetime... He probably packed more into his lifetime than 5 people. :D

^^^Haha, yeah, I laughed when I first read his comment.

It's like saying, 'He packed more in his 74 years on Earth than most 78 year olds.' :p

If you have not seen Blue Velvet yet, you're missing out on an awesome film. There is no other film like it. I don't think Lynch ever reached this kind of brilliance again. Part of his brilliance was casting Dennis Hopper as Frank Booth.

You must rent this movie!

A cult film that Hopper starred in should not be missed: Night Tide (1961/
The film is bizarre enough but the commentary track is not to be missed...they seemingly can't remember a thing
