Bill Paxton 1955-2017

20 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. »

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

27 February 2017 8:44 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

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.

Bill Paxton's 9 Most Memorable Roles

26 February 2017 12:02 PM, PST | 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 »
