You are what you do when it counts

I will do terrible things to protect myself and all that I've worked for.
But even in your deepest, darkest nightmares you can't imagine the horrific things I'll do to protect my family.

I loved him in "By Dawn's Early Light", and "Tombstone".

RIP

A good man and a very talented actor. The very first thing I saw him in was the Jim Jones tv miniseries from the early 80's.

Boothe has had a lot of great roles but my top 2 from him are from "Guyana: The Jim Jones Tragedy" and "Tombstone".

In retrospect, "Red Dawn" is cheesy as hell but Powers was very convincing in the role of an F-15 pilot. He's one of those few actors who can still be good even when appearing in a campy movie. biggrin

Don't forget Deadwood. A great performance in a show full of them.
He had a cool Philip Marlowe series on HBO back in the day I loved.
Last saw him on Agents of Shield.
Talented guy, another gone too soon.

I remember him best from Red Dawn and Extreme Prejudice. That stentorian voice of his was amazing, I bet you'd have no trouble hearing him on a parade ground.

Damn this is like a steady drumbeat of my favorite actors.
.Never will forget his performance of Curly Bill in "Tombstone".
RIP
Gone too soon, but not forgotten.

his performance in Deadwood made everyone else alive to me, just trying to hang onto his piece of the action.

Died of "natural causes" at 68? That doesn't sound right.

His Philip Marlowe was excellent.

I remember he went into a bar and was served a drink. The bartender asked him if he wanted to smooth it out for him. He answered "do you have a wood rasp". Classic

I'm not sure if that was his birth name or his adopted stage name.

Seems that was his birth name.
