"Alien" Actor Harry Dean Stanton Dies at 91


"Harry Dean Stanton, the character actor with the world-weary face who carved out an exceptional career playing grizzled loners and colorful, offbeat characters has died. He was 91. Rarely a leading man, the Kentucky native was memorable in 'Paris, Texas,' 'Repo Man,' 'Alien' and 'Twin Peaks.'

Stanton, who also was memorable in 'Cool Hand Luke' (1967), 'Two-Lane Blacktop' (1971), John Carpenter’s 'Escape From New York' (1981) and John Hughes’ 'Pretty in Pink' (1986) — in fact, what wasn’t he memorable in? — died Friday afternoon of natural causes at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, his agent, John Kelly, told The Hollywood Reporter."
