He died of complications from surgery. Not much more than that is available. Sad.
I loved Paxton - I could've put up with the sister wives thing no problem to be a "family" with Bill.
61 is too damned young. (And "complications from surgery" is awfully vague.)
A Simple Plan rightly gets a lotta love but I don't think as many inmates are familiar with One False Move. It's arguably Paxton's best screen performance (along with A Simple Plan). Co-written by Billy Bob Thornton, One False Move was Carl Franklin's directorial debut. It's well worth seeking out.
I agree with you. He was one of those actors who was good in everything he did. A real natural gift of charm, and I'm sure he studied like hell to perfect his craft.
A great one! R.I.P.
"Complications from surgery" is smokescreen for medical incompetence or malpractice.
One False Move is a well worth seeking out. Another very good movie that flew under the radar.
It always came through no matter what the line or role was. It was just him.
Even if he was playing a corrupt bad ass part like that nasty CIA guy, tracking down the agency drug money in "Two Guns"; a Denzel W and Marky Wahlberg flick in 2013. An odd role for a light touch, but Paxton had that gift of subtle humor riding on top of everything.
..where he was quite good as that Sgt. from Kentucky. And so many other films.
I saw an interview with Paxton and he said he was so awful in 'Aliens' that he thought he would never work again. His over the top performance made him an instant cult character that even I appreciated. 'Aliens' work for him and his future career.
certainly put him on my radar everafter, as the swaggering, blowhard foil to Michael Biehn's cool customer.
I loved him in Aliens. One of that classic's most memorable characters.
Game over, man, game over!!!
What a fabulous actor. Terrible loss.
This is a public service announcement . . . WITH GUITARS!!!
