Fuck. This is turning into a repeat of the Summer of Death 2009. Reuters is reporting that Dennis Hopper died at his home in Venice, CA today at the age of 74. And now he’s riding his hog off to heaven.
Dennis had been battling prostate cancer for quite some time while going through a messy divorce from his crazy wife Victoria.
One of Dennis’ friends, Alex Hitz, said he was surrounded by his family when he died at 8:15 this morning.
Most of us will remember Dennis for his roles in Rebel Without a Cause, Giant, Easy Rider, The Indian Runner, Speed, Blue Velvet, Super Mario Bros. (I’m trash so this is my favorite), Hoosiers and (insert the name of any Dennis Hopper movie I forgot to name).
Rest in peace, Dennis. We’ll all pour out a Pabst Blue Ribbon for you today:
