Dennis Hopper Dies

We lost a good one! I really loved Dennis Hopper in "Blue Velvet" - cult classic! I really admired his work. So sad that he is gone but he will be remembered.

"Dennis Hopper, the high-flying Hollywood wild man whose memorable and erratic career included an early turn in Rebel Without a Cause, an improbable smash with Easy Rider and a classic character role in Blue Velvet, has died. He was 74.

Hopper died on Saturday at his home in the Los Angeles beach community of Venice, surrounded by family and friends, family friend Alex Hitz said. Hopper's manager announced in October 2009 that he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer."
