Bill Paxton

On the eve of the Academy Awards, a sad note, as popular character actor Bill Paxton passed away from complications after heart surgery at the age of 61.

Often a role player in his films, yet unmistakeable and talented in larger roles such as ‘Twister,’ ‘A Simple Plan,’ ‘One False Move,’ and ‘Frailty,’ Paxton embodied the familiar Everyman with grace and Texas charm.

‘Frailty,’ Paxton’s criminally underseen directorial effort, showcased an artist of many talents.

Mr. Paxton, thank you for the numerous cinematic moments and memories.

You will be missed. Condolences to family and friends of this uniquely talented and wonderfully familiar ‘Movie Guy.’

Bill Paxton homage.

The Head Nerd mourns your unexpected early passing.
