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:
It’s with great sadness that I mourn the passing of my friend Powers Boothe. A dear friend, great actor, devoted father & husband.

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