I thought one of his best acting roles was as Jordan Benedict III in Giant with Hudson, Taylor, and Dean.

When I saw some recent pics of Dennis about a month ago I knew, sadly, he wasn't long for this world. He did not look in good shape at all, and had that "look of death" from his battles with prostrate cancer.

Huh? :confused:

I know Hopper wasn't a leading guy or one of the biggest stars but...

How could you not know who he was? Did you just bump into him at the concession stand or in the men's room?

No, i work in a restaurant, and he always use to go, he would talk for hours with you about anything. Im not a movie guy, so i didn't know he was an actor. He told me he was an actor but i didn't believe him.

That must have been amusing for him....thinking "Hey...how can you not know me?"

He probably liked that fact....and is probably more used to people asking about James Dean half the time.

I think I'm going to have to get a hold of a Hopper movie or look up some footage online later.

His performance in Hoosiers was nothing short of brilliant.

Iconic. Just plain iconic.

I felt good and right watching him, particularly in Easy Rider and Hoosiers, but even when he was chewing up the scenery as a natural born villain.

He'll be missed big time.

He was great in a lot of movies. 3 of his best Blue Velvet, River's Edge and Hoosiers all came out in the same year. The scene I was always remember him for is his classic scene with Christopher Walken in True Romance.
