In memoriam: Geoffrey Lewis

8 April 2015 1:46 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Actor Geoffrey Lewis, veteran of such films as High Plains Drifter and Dillinger, has passed away at the age of 79.

We're sad to report that veteran actor Geoffrey Lewis has passed away at the age of 79.

Across a career spanning TV and film, Lewis will surely be remembered for different roles by successive generations of filmgoers. Many will remember Lewis for his roles alongside Clint Eastwood in movies like High Plains Drifter, Every Which Way But Loose and Bronco Billy.

Others might remember him for his TV performances, which included Hawaii Five-o, Salem's Lot and Murder She Wrote. Then there was his superb turn in the period crime piece Dillinger, his turn in the cult sci-fi Night Of The Comet, or his work in the Michael Cimino films Thunderbolt And Lightfoot (another Eastwood flick) and Heaven's Gate.

These are but a few of the films and television shows brightened by Lewis's presence. »

Celebrity Showdown Director Edition: Clint Eastwood vs. Michael Mann

18 January 2015 10:55 PM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

On Friday, director Clint Eastwood's American Sniper went head-to-head against director Michael Mann's new release Blackhat at the box office, and it was a bit of a bloodbath.

American Sniper, which technically opened Dec. 6 but only in limited release, stars Bradley Cooper, while Blackhat stars People's Sexiest Man Alive Chris Hemsworth -- but Hemsworth's dreamy looks weren't enough to take down Cooper and his sniper rifle.

News: Celebrity Showdown -- Jake Gyllenhaal vs. Matthew McConaughey

In its first weekend of wide release, American Sniper snagged a staggering $90.2 million and earned itself the box office top spot. Meanwhile, in it's opening weekend Blackhat came in 10th with a disappointing $4 million.

However, Mann is considered to be one of the best action-thriller directors of our generation, with films like Heat and Collateral securing his legacy. Eastwood, on the other hand, is a legend in the field of filmmaking and has created a slew of Oscar-winning movies.
