I just heard on the radio on the way home from work that legendary actor Paul Newman died. He personified anti-hero cool better than anyone except maybe Steve McQueen. I love his movies from the 60's and 70's. Cool Hand Luke, Hud, Slapshot, Towering Inferno, and The Hustler, just to name a few.
He's up there with a few actors I had a (shudder) "Man Crush" on. Those eyes, those pouty lips..
Anyway, he seemed like a nice guy, was on the correct side on most issues and his popcorn was just dandy. He'll be missed but man I hope they don't bring him back from the dead like they did Orville Redenbaucher.
