Pour One Out For: Pete Postlethwaite 2/7/1946 – 1/2/2011

Not even 2 damn days into this new year and the celebrity death count has claimed it’s first victim.  English actor Pete Postlethwaite finally lost his battle with testicle cancer, a little over a month before his 65th birthday.  So close dude.  So close.

Postlethwaite is most known for his rolls in such films as:

Alien 3

Dark Water

Lost World:  Jurassic Park

Dragonheart

Clash of the Titans (2010)

The Last of the Mohicans

It truly sucks that Postlethwaite will forever be remembered as “hey, it’s THAT guy!” by most of the world.  No matter how small (or crusty) his characters were, he would always make them memorable.  Posthlethwaite, this one’s for you!
