Character Actor Powers Boothe passed away over the weekend at the age of 68. I'm always amused when it's said of someone that young that it was from "natural causes."
No, average age (lifespan) is 82 now. So, this is NOT normal.
Anyway, we are all lesser for not having his talent in the world with us anymore. He was a great presence on both the big and small screen and here's just a sample of his work.
He won awards for his portrayal of cult leader, "Jim Jones"
A smaller, but REALLY memorable role was that of "Curly Bill" in "Tombstone."
And, he even took a turn as "VP Daniels" on a season of my favorite all-time show, "24"
