Bill Paxton's 9 Most Memorable Roles

17 hours ago | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

This week, the entertainment industry lost another shining star when we learned that Bill Paxton died at the age of 61. Paxton was a well-known actor who played big and small roles for the last few decades, but no matter the size of the role, his presence was indelibly memorable. From roles in huge movies like Titanic to leading shows like HBO's Big Love, Paxton starred in so many things that you loved and that made him one of those recognizable film faces. And, tragically, he was nowhere near slowing down - he was one of the stars of CBS's new midseason drama Training Day, and he has a 2017 film coming up, The Circle, that has yet to be released. But for now, we're looking back at the past roles we'll never forget. Related:In Memoriam: 12 Stars We've Already Lost This Year »
