Wow, didn't see this one coming...

He was great in alot of various roles, popcorn movies like Aliens, Titanic, True Lies, Apollo 13, Twister and in understated critically-acclaimed films One False Move, A Simple Plan, Fraility (which he also directed)

RIP to a fellow Texan

Yes, just read it in the news... didn't know he played in Aliens. I really liked him in True Lies, even though his character was not exactly a Superhero....

Game over man.... Game over.

He'll always be Simon from True Lies to me.

This has rekindled my family's interest in trying to figure out where the hell he is in Stripes, though. He's listed in the credits, and a few places say he's in the mud wrestling scene, but no one can really point him out.

He was great in the HBO's series Big Love. I enjoyed him in many movies playing the average guy.
For some reason i always got him confused with Bill Pullman wasn't sure who had died. had to look at his photo.

RIP

The first movie I remember about Bill Paxton was Twister. "The Extreme"...you know, it's funny. Here I am thinking about what nickname I'd pick for myself if I could get one (like a callsign). After Phillip Seymour Hoffman died, I thought "Barnburner" would be a good one in his honor. But then I thought about how a coworker would call me "The Extreme" just because I used to storm chase. And I thought "The Extreme" would be more fitting...and then I read about this.

Bill Paxton will be missed. He was one of the few people in Hollywood who got so into character, you forgot he was an actor. Died too soon.

Underrated movie. Emily Blunt is so awesome in it.

Also the Captain of S-33 in U-571.

Paxton had some great lines. RIP.
