What's the matter, James? No glib remark? No pithy comeback?"

I just saw the report [In reply to] Can't Post

I knew of his heart attack so when I saw his photo on the tv news (muted), I feared the worse and went to ew.com for confirmation.

I watched quite a few episodes of Finder last year and I liked his character and what he brought to the role. He's way too young and my heart goes out to his family.

This really saddens me. [In reply to] Can't Post

He was beautiful in The Green Mile, and I loved what he did in The Island.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

And I was stricken. He always was such a powerful presence in everything he did. I especially enjoy him in Armageddon. So young... such a sad loss.

peace to his family and friends.

I really need these new films to take me back to, and not re-introduce me to, that magical world.

This is really sad [In reply to] Can't Post

He was such an awesome presence in every movie he was in. I loved him in Scorpion King (pretty sure I'm the only person in the world who liked that movie, but I'm not ashamed!) and in the extras and interviews he came across as a really funny, proud, balanced guy.
