Dennis Hopper

This video clip contains profanity and violence and is definitely not safe for work.

Recently, Dennis Hopper made an appearance to accept his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Gaunt and pale, and ravaged by cancer, he was surrounded by long time friends and fans who recognized his phenomenal talent. Hopper died last night, leaving a unique legacy of film, art, photography, intelligence and intensity.

In 1986, Dennis Hopper was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for his role in Hoosiers, playing a recovering alcoholic immobilized by his shame. He was good, even great, but he so deserved the nod for playing the villainous Frank Booth in the David Lynch film, Blue Velvet released that same year. Once you meet Frank Booth, you'll never forget him.
