LOS ANGELES — Hollywood actor Dennis Hopper, best known for directing and starring in the 1969 cult classic "Easy Rider," died on Saturday at his home in Venice, California, from complications of prostate cancer, a friend told Reuters. Hopper was 74.


From Rebel w/o a cause to Cool Hand Luke, Easy Rider, Apocolypse Now, Rumble Fish,Rivers Edge, Blue Velvet,etc. The man gave us some memorable performances
Galley Boys are slop on top of a so-so burger and a bun you coulde get from a Covneninet food mart generic pack. They the Antoine Joubert of burgers; soft, sloppy, oozing grease and cheap sauce and extremely overrated by a biased fan base. Proof that if you throw enough cheap sauce shit on a burger you still can't overcome the lame burger. -JB

"Pop quiz, hot-shot." Even in a bad movie like Speed, he tweaked his role to at least add some color.

Loved him in Hoosiers. "Five, four, three, two, one, let 'er fly... in and out." and the madman shotgun blast at his hilltop domicile... "Identify!"

One of Hollywood's greatest...\

Playing Frank Booth in Blue Velvet is still one of the most memorable performances IMO...

I'll also add the duet between him and Chris Walken in True Romance as being sheer brilliance...

RIP you "little man"

I loved 80's Dennis Hopper all hoped up on coke. I heard he got paid in coke for Texas Chainsaw 2.

Well there's 2 stars dead, I wonder who is gonna be #3.

The Dennis Hopper scene in True Romance is really good, but the best IMO is the scene with Gary Oldman "look who we got here, it's mutha fuckin' Charlie Bronson!"
