7 hours ago | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As one of Hollywood’s best-loved character actors, Bill Paxton — who died at the age of 61 over the weekend following complications from surgery — was a reliable supporting player throughout a wide range of feature films in the ’80s and ’90s.

Bill Paxton 1955-2017

9 hours ago | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Legendary actor Bill Paxton passed away the other day at age 61 due to complications arising from surgery. His career spanned decades, seeing him with parts in The Terminator, Aliens, Twister, and the television shows Big Love and Training Day. Everyone at Lrm wishes to express their condolences to the Paxton family on their loss.

As an actor, what I loved about him was the honesty he brought to his roles. Even if he were only on screen for a couple minutes, you believed he was the whatever character he was portraying on screen. I also loved the sense of wonder you would see in his face. He was a man who loved playing make believe in Hollywood. Some actors take themselves too seriously to really enjoy the fact that they’re experiencing a once in a lifetime opportunity. Bill had a way of making you feel like a kid with how excited he appeared. »

Mindy Newell: Maybe You Haven’t Been Keeping Up, But…”

Bill Maher may be claiming that he’s responsible for kicking Milo Yiannopoulos off of Breitbart and out of the Cpac (Conservative Political Action Conference) convention – or whatever the hell their annual party is called – but the truth is I did it. Yep, those words I “uttered” last week did it. Di pen shist erger fun a fayl, which is the Yiddish way of saying that the pen is mightier than the sword. Okay, for you purists out there, the actual translation is The pen stings worse than an arrow.

Well, Milo might be gone – and don’t let the door hit you on the ass your way out, luzer (Yiddish for “loser) – but the hate just keeps on coming. In a bar in Kansas, a piece of drek (Yiddish for “shit,” and I promise to stop with the Yiddish already) who had been asked to leave for using racial »

Peter Travers on Bill Paxton: A Modest Actor of Immodest Gifts

I met Bill Paxton in 1995. On a visit to the Rolling Stone offices in midtown Manhattan, he looked in awe at our cover wall, featuring iconic images of rock royalty. An intern, passing by, stopped to stare at him. "Your face looks familiar," she said.

"I've been in a couple of movies," Paxton said, good-naturedly.

The intern wasn't buying it. "Which ones?"

"Apollo 13 ... it just came out, I'm an astronaut in that one."

"Which astronaut?" the youngster prodded, skeptical to the last.

Critic's Notebook: Bill Paxton Was A Mainstream Team Player With A Wild Cult Side

26 February 2017 4:12 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Long before Apollo 13, Titanic, Twister and Big Love made him into a global screen star, Bill Paxton blew my tiny teenage mind.

Paxton was still an unknown aspiring actor when he directed and starred in a notorious 1980 music video by the eccentric Los Angeles comedy-rock duo Barnes & Barnes, "Fish Heads," a trippy milestone in post-punk surrealism that feels like one of David Lynch's more Wtf epics condensed into five reality-warping minutes. A friend of the band, Paxton succeeded in getting the clip aired on Saturday Night Live, and curious British TV networks picked it up »
