    Default RIP Patrick Swayze

    Damn. I feared this was coming and now the second shoe has dropped. What a gifted performer. I loved his performance in Ghost.

    RIP sir and thanks for showing the rest of us How It's Done.

    I just read about this on the yahoo main page.

    He was in some all time classics, and some of my favorites as a kid (The Outsiders, Dirty Dancing, ROADHOUSE!!!).

    I think I'll have to watch The Outsiders, Red Dawn, and Roadhouse in tribute. Rest in peace!

    Damn, just read about this online....very sad indeed.

    I lost some family over the years due to cancer, it's such a
    horrible thing.

    My prayers to him, his family and loved ones.

    His movies seemed to have captured the flavor of teen movies of the 80's ... Outsiders, Red Dawn, Dirty Dancing, Ghost, Roadhouse, Point Break. I enjoyed his roles in them all.

    What impressed me more, though was his behavior off screen. Of his fellow "Brat Packers" (Charlie Sheen, Judd Nelson, Rob Lowe, C. Thomas Howell, etc.), he seemed to have been well grounded as a person. You rarely heard about him in the tabloids on a drug, sex, or arrest related escapade. He was married to the love of his life for more than 3 decades, almost unheard of in Hollywood.

    R.I.P. Mr. Swayze. Condolences to his family and loved ones. His memory lives on in film.

    Truly a good, decent, honest, talented and upstanding man who lived his life with vigor and vitality. Absolutely a real, stand-up guy.

    Mr. Swayze will be sorely missed.

    I seen Patrick Swayze in an episode of Mash two nights ago. It was titled blood brothers, filmed in 1981. I can't find a clip anywhere though.

    RIP Johnny Castle. My GF can recite every line from Dirty Dancing.

    His work in The Outsiders and Red Dawn is awesome. The Chippendales sketch he did with Chris Farley on SNL was hilarious.

    On a related note, the sequel to Red Dawn is being filmed around Detroit this week. They were in Mount Clemens the past few days. I wonder if Jed Eckert's death has inspired everyone involved to make a good movie. So many sequels/remakes are a waste of time.

    This is a sad deal. He seemed like a nice guy and I usually liked his movie roles. Watching Red Dawn will never be the same anymore. I was glad to hear that he was surrounded by family at his passing.

    For a second there, I didn't realize that both of those gifted performers have passed on.

    Swayze was a great actor.

    Indeed this is a sad passing of yet another decent human being. My best wishes go to his family and close friends.

    I watched his last series on cable last year. He played an secret agent type character.
    He was teaching a side kick the ropes and also was driving hot modern cars. I thought it was a pretty good show. I was hoping he had beaten the cancer.
    Always enjoy watching his movies.
    RIP He will be missed!
