    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. 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.

    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 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
