    It's all part of the prophecy that ends with 2012. Middle of 2010, celebrities start to disappear, that's what they said on the discovery channel!

    This was a bummer but I had heard about his health and knew he was soon to go. I always wanted to meet Dennis as there was just a cool about him. After seeing him guest on Entourage last season, I wanted few things more than to kick back and watch a game with him, a tub of beer and huge bag of weed. Or drop acid and run around the dessert.

    Good to know he lived a long full life (fuller than most I would guess), and if he can make it to 74 with all he did, shit, I might have a chance at 75!:)

    R.I.P. Dennis, you were among the best ever!

    R.I.P. Absolutely one of the greatest American actors. I think I'll watch Out of the Blue tonight in remembrance.

    I have to throw out more love for The Hot Spot and not just because you get to see Jennifer Connelly's breasts before she starved them. Hopper made a film noir in color, complete with femme fatale, good girl, shady drifter, love triangle, a few felonies and an ending where the wrong person gets what they want. The blues music of John Lee Hooker, Miles Davis and Taj Mahal really sets the mood. I have the lips/convertible poster for the film and it's eye-catching. People like to look at it all over and then check out the other side (same image on each side). The little pics on ebay don't have the same impact as a full-size poster but take a look. One scene I get a kick out of is when Don Johnson realizes he's not getting Jennifer and he has to keep his mouth shut. I'd be sick too, but the look on his face is great.

    TCM 2 is one of the greatest horror sequels (IMHO) of all time and it's at least half due to Hopper's performance. He also made Blue Velvet so watchable for me, although it's a strange ride. RIP to a talented actor.

    I totally agree! I've always loved The Hot Spot and in many ways it even reminds me of a David Lynch film in it's style...albeit not as bizarre.

    RIP, Dennis. My Mom and Dad saw Easy Rider when it was out in theaters in 1969, and I wasn't very old when it came out. Another great role he has was in Speed, but he did have Prostate Cancer for at least a year, and the last appearance he had was in March when he finally got his Hollywood Walk of Fame, and he looked like he only weighed maybe 140 lbs. His face was so sunken in, which is what cancer does to you. He will be sorely missed.

    Oh, crap. Forgot Lefty, TCM2, which I think is the best sequel from all the Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequels, not only because of Dennis Hopper, but because of Bill Moseley as Chop Top.

    Yes, I agree with you!! The Hot Spot is a Great Movie!! Don Johnson gives a Very Good and Overlooked performance in this Film. Not only is Jennifer Hot, but Virginia Madsen is Super Hot as the Sexy Femme Fatale!! I mean, Wow, She is Hot in this Movie!! Hopper did a Great job Directing this Film and it is often overlooked. Great Movie!!

    His scene with Christopher Walken is True Romance is one of the best of all time. RIP Dennis.
