R.I.P. Powers Boothe – ManlyMovie

R.I.P. Powers Boothe

SUDDEN DEATH, Powers Boothe, 1995, (c)Universal Pictures

Powers Boothe has passed at the age of 68.

He died in his sleep of natural causes.  I suppose he had a decent run.  His rep told The Hollywood Reporter that a private service will be held in Boothe’s home state of Texas, with a memorial celebration under consideration as well. Donations can be made to the Gary Sinise Foundation, which honors the nation’s defenders, veterans, first responders, their families and those in need.

His friend, actor Beau Bridges, tweeted the news Sunday afternoon:

Boothe has appeared in countless manly movies, from Southern Comfort to Sudden Death, to TV shows like Deadwood.  A big loss.

    First Bill Paxton, now Powers Boothe..
    Fuck You 2017!

      I agree and michael parks and Miguel Ferrer dead too. Powers Boothe, michael parks, Miguel Ferrer and Bill Paxton would have been great in an expendables movie. Now that they’re dead, that makes little chance of happening especially since sly and arnold exited expendables 4 due to disagreements with the producer of the script, direction and all.

      • Mucho Macho

        Agree about Miguel Ferrer & Michael Parks as well.
        Heaven got manlier.

  • Mucho Macho

    Tragic news indeed.
    Very cool dude. I was always a fan of his. May God rest his manly soul.

  • Just Some Polack

    Fuck, I wouldn’t expect that! Action movies, thrilles, dramas etc. will certainly be poorer without his charisma. R.I.P. and sympathies for the family.

    And to honor this man and the manly roles he created I propose him as the next MM Hall of Fame inductee.

    A sad day. Extreme Prejudice & Southern Comfort are manly classics no doubt. RIP man.

  • AlTeo

    Great in Southern Comfort and Extreme Prejudice. Smooth as fuck in Sudden Death with Van Damme. He will be missed. RIP
