This is truly sad, depressing news. I feel almost the exact same way I did when my grandfather passed away last year. Alas, no one lasts forever, but I, for one, will have an immense hole deep w/in my soul for quite some time because of this. The man, the myth, the legend. Star of such brilliant classics as;
Paris Blues, The Hustler, Sweet Bird of Youth, Hud, Torn Curtain, Harper, Cool Hand Luke, Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid,
The Life & Times of Judge Roy Bean, The Sting, Slap Shot, The Verdict, Nobody’s Fool,
and most recently
Road To Perdition.
This great man may have shed his mortal coil, but his spirit & his legacy shall live on.
He will forever remain irreplaceable & irrefutable. A true man of class.
A legend in his own time. Rest In Peace, Mr. Newman.
