Patrick Swayze, dead, cancer, 57

LOS ANGELES – Patrick Swayze personified a particular kind of masculine grace both on and off screen, from his roles in films like "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost" to the way he carried himself in his long fight with pancreatic cancer. Swayze died from the illness on Monday in Los Angeles, his publicist said. He was 57.

That sucks. He was the star of the best worst movie on the planet...Roadhouse and Red Dawn, which was required viewing during the Cold War. He will be missed.

Stand up actor too, married to the same lady for 34 years, didn't screw around. Very humble actor who even with cancer (one of the worse and most painful to get) showed up to work every day because he signed a contract to work on the tv show, and he said, I signed a contract, I needed to fulfill my obligation.
Man all the great actors are checkin out..sucks for Hollywood and the rest of us who like good movies.
