Ron Howard Pays Tribute to His Friend Bill Paxton: He 'Will Be Agonizingly Missed'

6 hours ago | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Ron Howard is mourning the loss of his friend, Bill Paxton.

Following the news of Paxton’s unexpected death at 61 years old, Howard penned a heartfelt tribute in his honor on Sunday, published by The Hollywood Reporter.

Watch: James Cameron Remembers Bill Paxton: ‘He Was a Good Man, a Great Actor and a Creative Dynamo’

The two worked together on the highly acclaimed drama Apollo 13 in 1995. Below is Howard's emotional letter in its entirety:

Unlike the Twisters he famously chased in the movies, Bill Paxton was the kind of force of nature you ran toward and never away from. He energized every situation with his humor, his intelligence and his appreciation of the moment he was inhabiting and the people he was inhabiting it with.

He had charm and an admirable Joie de vivre — Texas-style. He was both down-home and a serious fine-art enthusiast and collector. Bill was playful-yet-dutiful in his work as an actor »

Bill Paxton, the everyman actor who died unexpectedly this weekend at the age of 61, starred as lunar module pilot Fred Haise in Apollo 13 — but offscreen, the film's director Ron Howard remembered the actor as a true "force of nature."

Here, Howard pens a tribute to the late Paxton — who died after suffering complications from surgery.

Bill Paxton’s career spanned film and TV, where his many memorable roles included “Big Love,” “Hatfields & McCoys,” “Texas Rising,” and “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” But it’s CBS’ adaptation of the film “Training Day,” currently on the air, that will now serve as his small-screen swan song.

Training Day” has aired four episodes so far; 13 episodes in total were shot. Production wrapped at the end of 2016; the show wasn’t expected to be renewed, and Paxton’s death makes a second season even less likely. An adaptation of the 2001 film, CBS’ “Training Day” took place 15 years later and starred Paxton as Det. Frank Roarke, a cop who doesn’t always follow protocol. Justin Cornwell was the rookie cop who became his new partner, but was actually undercover to keep an eye on Roarke. »

Imagine Entertainment Enlists Charlie Corwin as CEO to Drive Growth Initiatives

21 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and the rest of the folks who run Imagine Entertainment have no shortage of creative ideas, ambition and resources.

But last year, after the company secured an equity investment of up to $100 million from Raine Group, Grazer and Howard realized they still needed a CEO-type to help them turn all of their activity into lasting businesses.

Enter Charlie Corwin. The former co-chairman of Endemol Shine North America formally joined the company last month as CEO, reporting to Grazer and Howard. His mandate is help the company harness the capital from Raine to expand Imagine’s reach in multiplatform content and distribution.

“Part of my mission is to expand the shapes and sizes of the content that Imagine develops and produces,” Corwin said. “It’s hard to think of a better platform than Imagine — headed by two guys at the top who have impeccable taste and incredible relationships who are enthusiastically pushing all of »

Richard Schickel, Rip: How the Legendary Critic Defined a Generation

21 February 2017 8:29 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

My first meeting as a member of the New York Film Critics Circle was December 1989 and, in those days, the group met at the old Newspaper Guild building, then on West 44th Street. The meeting room was a cramped, windowless enclosure with fake wood-panel walls, a full assortment of ashtrays and the ambiance of — well, interior designers have a technical name for enclosures like this: Shit-hole, I believe, is the term of trade.

But when I walked into this unprepossessing little room, here were people whose names were magical to me, critics whose work helped shape the way I looked at movies as a college student and then as a nascent critic and film journalist. Pauline Kael. Andrew Sarris. Rex Reed. Richard Schickel.

Schickel, who died Saturday at 84, may have been the name that struck the deepest chord at that time. Long before I discovered either Kael or Sarris, I »

16 February 2017 5:40 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Brothers Joey, Matthew and Andrew Lawrence dominated the '90s sitcom scene as teen heartthrobs, but Joey tells Et he doesn't want his children to get involved in Hollywood quite yet.

Now 40 years old with two daughters -- Charleston, 10, and Liberty, 6 -- Joey knows full well about the pitfalls that can overtake young actors in show business.

Pics: Hollywood's Cutest Kids

"I told [Charleston], 'I don't want you to do this, because you know what happens to 9 out of 10 of these young ladies? They get used and they get spit out and no one remembers them,'" Joey tells Et's Nischelle Turner. "I told her [to] take the example of Ron Howard's daughter. She started a little later. Jennifer Lawrence started a little later. If you're really meant to do this -- and she is amazing -- I'd rather that you enter a little later where you can jump right into the stuff, and people »

Beyonce Misses Out on Grammy Records

12 February 2017 5:06 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Beyonce is already a big winner at the 2017 Grammy Awards, taking two trophies: Urban/Contemporary Album and Music Film on Sunday in Los Angeles, but she won’t be making Grammy history this year, at least not in the win column.

With a stunning nine nominations for her visual album, “Lemonade,” Beyonce had a chance to break or at least tie two major Grammy records: most wins in a single night — Michael Jackson (1984) and Santana (2000) both scored eight Grammys each — as well as the record for most all-time Grammy wins by a female artist. Alison Krauss currently owns the record with 27 wins; Beyonce now has 21 wins.

During Sunday’s pre-telecast ceremony, the 35-year-old Knowles got off to a rocky start, losing four of her first five categories: best rap/sung collaboration to Drake for “Hotline Bling,” best pop solo performance to Adele for “Hello,” best rock performance to the late David Bowie, and »

Beyoncé Won Her First Grammy of Night — Before the Show Even Started

12 February 2017 3:34 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Beyoncé‘s Grammy Awards night is starting on a (figurative) high note!

The 35-year-old singer won the best music video category for “Formation” before the live show even got started. The Recording Academy announced the victory on Twitter.

Beyoncé is up for nine Grammys, making her the leading artist at the 2017 awards show. However, she won’t be sweeping all her categories. Her visual album “Lemonade” was up for best music film award, but the honor went to the Ron Howard’s film “The Beatles: Eight Days A Week The Touring Years.”

She isn’t the only one in the Knowles family celebrating a win, »
