Re: Dennis Hopper

Dang sorry to hear that. He was a great actor. Not sure of his status of salvation but then it aint my bizness to know that kinda stuff. Hoping the Lord has welcomed the gentleman with open arms.

One of my favorites. If I quoted a couple of his best lines, I'd get banned.

Re: Dennis Hopper

I saw he had passed this over the weekend just this morning. Very sad. May have an Easy Rider, Apocalypse Now, Blue Velvet movie-thon soon. He had just celebrated his birthday May 17.

Re: Dennis Hopper

May he r.i.p.

Honestly, I never cared much for the druggie hippie movie star ilk.
John Wayne once chased him with a gun around a movie set. That
pretty much says it for me.

Re: Dennis Hopper

@TriTip, from Blue Velvet. You should see about finding a film called 'Out of the Blue' it is a bit of how Blue Velvet started. I think Dennis Hopper directed it and he is in it as a very similar character. Its a dark film with less of a budget.

Re: Dennis Hopper

He made a real good bad guy. From following his antics over the years I had him figgered as an old zonked out LSD hippy prevert from the 60's who had some talent and made a bunch of money for some reason unbeknownst to us mortals. He might have been gathering and heaping it up to dispense to the righteous. Who knows?

Re: Dennis Hopper

One of my favorite character actors. He'd been strugglin' with
the cancer for a long while. Did anybody ever see Flashback
a movie he did with Keifer Sutherland? Great comedy!
