Harry Dean Stanton Passes Away at Age 91

Harry Dean Stanton Passes Away at Age 91

Kelly says the actor died Friday afternoon at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles of natural causes. He began attracting notice in higher-profile movies such as "Aliens", "Private Benjamin" and "Escape From New York", but it was with 1984's "Paris, Texas" that he rose to star status. Stanton would make some sizeable television appearances as well, including that of Roman Grant on HBO's Big Love, not to mention recently reprising his Twin Peaks role as Carl Rodd on the series revival from Showtime this year.

Star Wars actor Mark Hamill and Twin Peaks creator David Lynch are among the stars who have paid tribute to actor Harry Dean Stanton, who has died aged 91.

Hamill, who played Luke Skywalker, described Stanton as "incomparable" while Lynch labelled him a "great one".

Actor Harry Dean Stanton arrives at the premiere of Paramount Pictures' "Rango" at Regency Village Theater on February 14, 2011, in Los Angeles, California.

David Johnson to miss 2-3 months
Start combing practice squads? It was the 24-yard reception that the health of Johnson was starting to become a question. He's the type of running back, who can really "do it all" and is the catalyst of the Cardinals high profile offense.

According to TMZ, Stanton never married, but he is survived by some family members.

Sophie Davant, the death of his mother: "She was 44 years old, it was sublime..."

"There went a great one". There's nobody like Harry Dean. Andie's dad tried, he really did, and Stanton was just so honest in this role you couldn't help but want to hug him a million times over even when his daughter was having an angsty moment. "Goodbye, Harry Dean. Rest in peace".

"'Paris, Texas' allowed me to play empathy", Stanton told a questioner, "and I'm spelling that with a capital C".

Stanton has been a staple on the big and small screens for seven decades. He played the role of Brett in Ridley Scott's sci-fi classic "Alien". But again, that's just one of many memorable turns in the career of this living legend.

Born in West Irvine, Kentucky, Stanton served in the Navy during WWII, and then attended the University of Kentucky, studying journalism and radio. Many actors would have overplayed the role or reduced it to simple basics, but Stanton made the most of his supporting position in the film. Occasionally you would hear Stanton sing; music was his other love - he sang and played harmonica onstage and off.

Ebert later conceded that "Dream A Little Dream Of Me", a 1989 film starring Corey Haim and Corey Feldman that featured Stanton as a philosophical neighbor was a clear exception.
