Pete Postlethwaite Dies at 64

Truly a sad sad occasion.  While not necessarily know by name to many of the movie going public, he was always recognizable, and more importantly memorable.  I first happened to notice him in The Usual Suspects, as the lawyer  Kobayashi, but he made his imprint in films such as:

In the Name of the Father (Oscar nominated)
Alien 3
Last of the Mohicans
The Lost World
The Constant Gardner
and in just this past year alone
Clash of the Titans
and The Town.

His final film, Killing Bono, is scheduled to be released in April.  I'm off to go watch The Usual Suspects.

His talents will be missed.
