Prolific Actor Harry Dean Stanton Dies at Age 91

APNewsBreak: Man burned by caustic beer gets $750K

His answers were sort of Buddhist and very Harry Dean Stanton.

A cause of death for Harry Dean Stanton has yet to be determined.

Among his final roles, he played Sheriff Lloyd in Frank and Ava, which is now in post-production, and Carl Rodd on the reboot of the TV series Twin Peaks.

Harry was born July 14, 1926, in Irvine, Kentucky.

He worked with some of Hollywood's best known directors, including Francis Ford Coppola, (The Godfather Part II and One From the Heart), Sam Peckinpah (Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid), Martin Scorsese (The Last Temptation of Christ), Ridley Scott (Alien), and Lynch (Wild at Heart, The Straight Story and Inland Empire). He redefined acting for me. While films such as "Repo Man" gave him the opportunity to use his unique abilities to be quick and playful, "Paris, Texas" was a somber film that allowed him to be spellbinding in the quietest of ways.

Never mistaken for a leading man, Stanton was an unforgettable presence to moviegoers, fellow actors and directors, who recognized that his quirky characterizations could lift even the most ordinary script. Roger Ebert once observed that no movie with Stanton in a supporting role "can be altogether bad".

"The great Harry Dean Stanton has left us", said Lynch in a statement released on Twitter by Showtime.

He additionally stars with Lynch in the up and coming movie "Fortunate", the directorial presentation of performing artist John Carroll Lynch, which has been depicted as an affection letter to Stanton's life and vocation.

Stanton appeared in dozens of films, including "Repo Man", "Cool Hand Luke", and "Paris, Texas", as well as the recent reboot of television's "Twin Peaks", where he appeared as Carl Rodd. Stanton was a genuinely good man and an actor who put in the work and got the job done with terrific results. He will verbalize his sentence thanks to a therapy group: "I called one night to tell him how much I hated it". Stanton also served in the United States Navy in World War II, during which time he served as a cook on a tank landing ship during the Battle of Okinawa.

Harry Dean Stanton played hooligans and codgers, erraticisms and failures.

Harry Dean Stanton has spent a lifetime in show-business.

In his early years, he went by the name Dean Stanton because there was another actor named Harry Stanton.

He also appeared in hit TV series such as Big Love, and many westerns including Pork Chop Hill in 1959 with Gregory Peck.
