Unfortunately the New Year has already brought with it the death of another beloved actor. British thesp Pete Postlethwaite has passed away at the age of 64 following a long illness. The character actor has appeared in a number of fantastic films, turning out one memorable performance after the other. In 2010 alone he appeared in three major films -- Clash of the Titans, Inception and The Town (best performance of the three, in my opinion) – not to mention also co-starring in other great movies like In the Name of the Father (in which he was nominated for an Oscar), The Usual Suspects, Romeo + Juliet and The Lost World: Jurassic Park.
I'm sorry to hear of Mr. Postlethwaithe's passing yesterday. He was a very good actor in the five or six films I watched of him in the cinema. As I write this, I can remember his gritty, performance in The Town. Thank you, sir.
He will be missed. RIP Mr. Postlethwaite.
just watched inception the other day and thats crazy because he was dying in that movie, just kind of weird but he was great in his movies
Very sad news. RIP Pete. I will miss you at the movies.
"THEY KILLED GIUSEPPE MAHN!!"
So 'sorry" to hear that such an amazing Actor Peter Postlethwaite passed away much to soon. I will never forget his legendary Role as the Hunter in the SCI-Fi Movie blockbuster The Lost World: JURASSIC PARK that's one of many fave movies that he totally shines in, his an awesome Actor and will truelly be missed.
There are some actors you simply look forward to experiencing; Pete was definitely one of those for me! The thought of no longer seeing Pete in future movies is very sad, and I feel grateful that we all were blessed with his enormous passion and skill as an actor.
I will always remember him as the lawyer KOBIASHI in the USUAL SUSPECTS..He carried every scene that he was in.He will definitely be missed...
;[ I'm glad he's no longer in pain, but that is really rather depressing.
This is so sad! Mr. Postlethwaite is one of the very best. YOU SIR WILL BE TRULY MISSED!
