It seems that a week doesn't go by now without the death of another legend. This one, though, really bothers me.
Paul Newman is dead. The coolest actor of all time is no more.
He was my all time favourite actor, bar none. From Fast Eddie Felson to Cool Hand Luke to a great later role as Sully in Nobody's Fool, he was an actor you could depend upon - smart, funny and oh so cool.
I could go on and on talking about favourite roles and killer lines but what would be the point? You're far better off just renting some of his movies (start with the older ones) and seeing for yourself.
