Hollywood star of God Father Part II and Cool Hand Luke dies

Harry Dean Stanton, Actor and WWII Veteran, Dies at Age 91

The news of Harry Dean Stanton dead comes from Variety, who confirmed the actor passed away of natural causes in his Los Angeles home on Friday.

"The great Harry Dean Stanton has left us", his close friend and frequent collaborator David Lynch said in a statement on Friday.

With a 60-year-long resume, Stanton appeared in more than 200 movies and TV shows, creating memorable roles in films like Repo Man, Godfather II, Pretty in Pink and Escape from NY. He is known for "Paris, Texas", "Repo Man", "Alien", and "Cool Hand Luke", among other movies.

The late faultfinder Roger Ebert once said no motion picture can be through and through terrible in the event that it incorporates Stanton in a supporting part, and the wide clique of fans that included chiefs and his kindred on-screen characters felt the same.

"In the end, you end up accepting everything in your life - suffering, horror, love, loss, hate - all of it". In fact, the Hollywood Reporter, which calls Stanton the "quintessential American actor", argues he was memorable in pretty much every role he took.

The tall, lean actor with the memorably gaunt face was still working, with a new movie, Lucky, due for release in the U.S. later this month.

Author Stephen King paid condolences, and tweeted: "Harry Dean Stanton had the best line in "Christine": "I'm selling" this shithole and buyin' a condo'". Stanton was the Repo Man, Bud, schooling young Emilio Estevez's character, Otto.

Jones has vehemently denied taking performance-enhancing steroids but could be suspended for up to four years if found guilty. The CSAC made that move, after it reported Jones' B sample from UFC 214 tested positive for the anabolic steroid, Turinabol .

The 91-year-old actor became popular through his appearance in several cult and indie films, including Escape From New York, Cockfighter and Two-Lane Blacktop.

He appeared in more than 200 movies and TV shows in a career dating to the mid-1950s.

"He's one of those actors who knows that his face is the story", said his friend, playwright and actor Sam Shepard, in the 2012 documentary, Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction.

Born in Kentucky in 1926, Harry Dean Stanton served in the US Navy during World War II and afterwards moved to California to try for an acting career. That's Stanton, in his first lead role - at age 58.

It wasn't until 1979 that Harry Dean Stanton would get one of his most recognizable roles in cinema as the Nostromo crew member Brett in Ridley Scott's Alien. "I don't want to deal with any consciousness afterward".

Stanton never married but said he had one or two kids.
