    Shame reports note short illness, no other details have been given. He's involved in some great genre flicks. RIP.

    Yeah I saw this earlier and my heart sank. He apparently died on the 19th and it’s just being reported now. RIP Rutger. You were one of the best villains of the 80s.

    Also kinda weird that both he himself and his character in Blade Runner both died in 2019...

    Aw man - very sad! Most think of Blade Runner, but it was definitely The Hitcher for me.

    A wonderful actor with a unique presence. BLADE RUNNER will always loom large but he was also wonderful in THE HITCHER, NIGHTHWKS , Peckinpah's THE OSTERMAN WEEKEND and was a hoot in BLIND FURY. Rest In Peace.

    Rutger Hauer was great in Blade Runner, The Hitcher, Surviving the Game, Wanted Dead or Alive, and many more. He will never be forgotten!
