Unhappy Actor Harry Dean Stanton (1926-2017)

Link

Harry Dean Stanton -- who had iconic roles in "Godfather II," "Pretty in Pink," "Alien" and "Escape from New York" -- has died ... TMZ has learned.
Harry Dean died peacefully Friday afternoon at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A. The legendary actor's career spanned more than 6 decades. His credits also include "Repo Man," "Cool Hand Luke," "Paris, Texas," "Alien," "Wild at Heart" and "Twin Peaks."

Harry Dean's final performance will be seen in "Lucky," which is set to air later this month. He's also appeared in HBO's "Big Love" as a polygamist patriarch.
Stanton was in the Navy in WWII and fought in the Battle of Okinawa.
Harry Dean was a talented musician who sang and played guitar. He performed for years with The Harry Dean Stanton Band.

TMZ used to see Stanton frequently at Dan Tana's in WeHo and he was always great to our photogs.
Harry Dean is survived by some family. He was a lifelong bachelor.
Harry Dean was 91. RIP.

RIP.

A lot of news outlets are noting his appearance in Godfather 2 pretty prominently. He was "FBI Man #1," quite a small role, actually.

RIP

One of my favorite of his roles was as Bud in Repo Man, and my favorite starring role of his is in the Wim Wender's film Paris, Texas, one of the best films of the 80's.

I've probably seen Godfather II 100 times and never even noticed Stanton was in it.

What a great character actor with a lot of iconic roles dating back to the mid-50s. And the shocking thing is he didn't look 91 to me. I think it's weird you could describe a 91-year old person as dying too soon, but I think that applies to Harry here.

He looked younger.

Mr. Stanton appeared in so many television shows and great films. He was terrific in "Alien" and "Dillinger."

And, of course Mr. Stanton was also a World War II U.S. Navy veteran as a very young man.

Requiem aeternam, Mr. Stanton.
