Got notice yesterday that actor Powers Boothe passed away at age 68 of natural causes. He played Curly Bill Brocius in Tombstone. FYI

Good bad guy, but also good at playing good guys too! Liked him in Red Dawn as the pilot.

A fine actor. He and Val Kilmer were what made "Tombstone."

Always liked his roles. He made a movie in the mid-80's i think called "Emerald Forrest" that I really liked at the time. Haven't seen it for years.

Sad to see him go at just 68.
