GOODBYE, BILL PAXTON...


You were always a pleasure to see, even when the roles were lean and mean. Your diversity actually graced a number of genres, though you seemed to shine brightest in action/adventure, horror and science fiction films, including "Aliens"; "Apollo 13"; "Boxing Helena"; "The Colony"; "Edge of Tomorrow"; "Future Shock"; "Mighty Joe Young '98"; "Near Dark"; "Nightcrawler"; "Predator 2"; "Slipstream"; "Spy Kids 2 & 3D"; "Terminator"; "Thunderbirds '04"; "Titanic '97"; "Tombstone"; "True Lies"; "Twister"; and "Weird Science"; plus a memorable, recurring role on "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." However, your finest, all-around moment came in your directorial debut, "Frailty", in which you also gave one of your best performances. Alas, you've left us far too soon, my friend, but your entertaining achievements exceed those of many others who've lived much longer lives. In honor of your rich and affluent body of work (and for always being a down-to-earth guy), God bless and Godspeed...
