    My wife worked at the Silver Saddle Motel in Ames where much of the staff and some cast stayed during filming. All she ever said was everyone thought Helen Hunt was a *****.

    I guess I am watching Twister tonight instead of the Oscars.

    This one goes out to you, Bill...

    Which leads to my semi-serious question...can they get him in during the "In Memoriam" segment? I seem to remember some actors or other Hollywood movers & shakers dying less than 3 days before the Oscars, and they weren't in. (I want to say they didn't even mention or acknowledge them in the intro to the segment)

    RIP Bill Henrickson. Made being a Mormon and having 3 different families seem so normal.

    I really don't know why, but this death is not sitting well with me.

    Doesn't "In Memoriam" generally cover all of those lost during the calendar year covered by show - as in 2016? I would expect him to be in next year's "In Memoriam".

    Yes Frailty is a excellent movie if you like horror/suspense films.

    Stop your grinnin' & drop your linen!

    RIP Bill. You are in some of my all time favorite movies.

    Speaking of Twister and that BAD ASS Van Halen tune, why hasn't ISU ever tried to use anything from that at sporting events?
     
  13. Always a favorite of mine. My favorite role of his is probably in Hatfields and McCoys. Him and Costner were great in that deal.

    Also, it is always weird to hear of people dying of complications in surgery in the 21st Century. We have figured so much out, yet those things still happen.

    Heart surgery is pretty common at our age (we were born the same year). I saw somewhere that he threw a clot post-surgery and stroked out. Rare, but it does happen.

    I had a close friend die last summer same thing, he went in for heart surgery, and had a stroke,

    You think they get out of surgery they are through the worst and then a stroke happens.

    Recording the oscars tonight and watching Tombstone.

    RIP Bill Paxton just a versatile actor
