You were one of the best. You will truly be missed.
Total Shite !
Definitely a legend. He has so many different career paths (studio player in the sixties, auteur in the seventies, weirdo character actor in the eighties, villian in the nineties and everyman of the aughts) he's left a mark on so many different facets and corners of the cinema. He put up a good fight, and let's be honest, considering all the drugs he put in his body over the years, 74 is a pretty damn good age to go. Rest in peace, easy rider!
He was such an awesome actor!
We just lost a legend. As far as I'm concerned, Hopper will always live on as Frank Booth from Blue Velvet. Also thought he was especially awesome in Apocalypse Now, Texas Chain Saw Massacre 2, and True Romance. I really enjoyed him in Land of the Dead as well. Rest in peace. Enjoy that Pabst Blue Ribbon, Frank!
He seemed somehow ageless for the longest time.
I would like to acknowledge his many directorial efforts. I love Easy Rider, The Hot Spot and Colors in particular. Hell, I even liked Chasers.
He will be missed for sure.
This is truly sad news. I am thankful that he was at least fortunate to live a full and colorful life.
Why is everyone dying? This is gettin kinda scary! Who's next? Jaime Lee??
Why is there always somebody who says that shit? That's life, dude. People are never gonna stop dying. The rule about "death always coming in threes" is bullshit. Death comes one after another in a long never ending stream, and the longer you live the more people you know are going to pass away. Dennis Hopper is no surprise. He's been on his death bed for months now.
Well said my friend. Hard to believe Hopper is gone, truly one of the greats. RIP
Sad News. For me, Dennis Hopper's performance in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2 is one of his best!! I also loved his Movie The Hot Spot, which he directed, with Don Johnson, and Virginia Madsen.
It's Sad to hear about so many deaths though, I just read about Gary Coleman last night and now this afternoon I find about Dennis Hopper. RIP Dennis.
More sad news, Dennis was a true individual, He did it his way that's for sure. RIP
i can't believe it. i didn't know he was even sick. this really fucking sucks. what a phenomenal actor. he will absolutely be missed.
I think that many of us were surprised because we had not previously heard this... I hadn't heard anything about his ill health until he passed away this morning.
It's been no secret that he's been ill with prostate cancer for quite some time, so I wasn't really as shocked from hearing that he died.
It's been a bad month for celebrity deaths...
Indeed, or a bad weekend, and it hasn't finished yet :O
Well, may he rest in peace, such a great actor...
R.I.P. Dennis Hopper.
First Corey Haim, then Gary Coleman, now Dennis Hopper!?!? It's going to be 2009 all over again. RIP Dennis.
Perhaps it would be more surprising to me if there was some substantial link between those three, but there isn't. I don't mean to sound like a dick about this because I'm a fan of all of the above, but the fact of the matter is that dozens upon dozens of people in entertainment die every year. They are human after all. The same rules apply to them as the rest of us. I guarantee to you that someone else who is famous will die within the next month because that's just the way life is.
These deaths are sad, but not the least bit surprising I'm sorry to say. Corey Haim has had a lifelong history of substance abuse, Gary Coleman has had medical problems since almost the day he was born, and Dennis Hopper was an old man who was diagnosed with terminal cancer months and months ago.
