Swayze was preceded in death by his career about 20 years ago but there's no one you'd wish pancreatic cancer on. Publicly the guy fought a good fight.

I'll take him as Bhodi in 'Point Break' and as Darry in 'The Outsiders'. Those two flicks (which were horrible) and as Farley's dance partner in the Chippendales skit (possibly his best role).

He was also ok in 'Youngblood' when Rob Lowe was miscast as a hockey player.

RIP, Bhodhi.

IIRC he turned down an invite from the Bahr to play to go into acting.

RIP- P. Swayze.

Not to be an "Afterlifer", but the thought of a Chippendale's reunion is great.

answer a trivia question - what movie did swayze play in that was the first official movie to be released with a pg-13 rating???

p.s. now this was one of my favorite swayze movies, to go along with roadhouse and 3 wishes. he also uttered one of the all-time greatest pop-culture lines in dirty dancing when he said "nobody puts baby in the corner". classic.

I hate Red Dawn. They call themselves "Wolverines", that's just disgusting. A wolverine is the in the same family as skunks.

I remember finding out that Patrick had pancreatic cancer about a week after my brother was diagnosed with it. I remember how the whole acting world was so sad about Swayze. It made reality sink in for me to what my brother was facing.

My brother passed last August after battling it for 10 months. Patrick fought it for 20 months.

RIP Patrick and Jack.

I thought Dalton was invincible. RIP Swayze. I watch a few minutes of Roadhouse every time I catch it.

RIP. Always will remember him as Dalton....though as mentioned already liked him in The Outsiders and Red Dawn.

Was a huge fan of the North & South mini-series too he was in as one of the main characters Orry Main.

I have to respectfully disagree. His role in Donnie Darko was very well acted, and probably led to his late renaissance (from what I saw, he was pretty good in the tv series The Beast).

JF, a side role in an Indy Flick and a TV series role is a dead career.....

Perspective.

Not that he ever had much of a career in my eyes.

Yeah, I bolded that last sentence because I agree with you, at least in the way Peeker meant it. His best roles were box-office flops. As a cinephile, I consider someone's career to be the quality of their roles, not how much money they brought in.

By the other definition right now Shia LeBoeuf has the best acting career in the world.

Money had nothing to do with it. I respect the way the man handled his fight against cancer, but he was a B-list actor who starred in B-list films IMO. Dude was a step away from a reality series.

Apologies to any huge fans of 'Ghost'.

It's like the Haters Ball around here, featuring dead people.

For a ballet dancer, he had one hell of an acting career. Not a bad jump if you can make it, really. He had an acting career young actors strive for and other actors respect.

Long live the Swayze. RIP.

Tell that to any actor struggling to make ends meet.

The guy made a shitload of money and was in some decent flicks along the way. I'd consider his career a rousing success.

If money and being part of something decent is a rousing success then we can say the same things of Jamey Carroll and David Dellucci that we say of Patrick Swayze. ;-) ;) :wink:

I would say without hesitation that, relatively speaking, David Dellucci's baseball career has been a resounding success, regardless of whether I think the Indians should have contributed to that success.

Just because The Swayze isn't Lawrence Olivier, I'm not going to call the guy a failure.

Me either Herm. Guy did what he did and someone saw fit to cast and pay him. But that still doesn't mean he was anything other than mediocre and that his career didn't peter out long before his pulse did.

We could probably think of 100 comics better than Carrot Top with checkbooks that aren't even close to his.

Like I said, Swayze was Darry. That counts for something.

And the public grace with which he handled his illness was his best role. That really counts for something.

you are correct, sir.

i was always amazed at how many young stars who were in that movie who all carved out some nice long acting careers along with swayze including charlie sheen, c. thomas howell, jennifer grey and lea thompson, to go along with some of the already solid veteran actors like powers boothe and harold dean stanton.

i still remember the words that stanton said to his sons (played by swayze and sheen) from behind the fenced in concentration camp that the russkies had setup in the drive-in movie theater - "avenge me, boys, avenge me!!!". powerful stuff.
