  Farewell Powers Boothe [read more]
  Impressive character actor dies aged 68
  Powers Boothe, the film and television actor who was always a reliable bad guy, has died in his sleep, it has been announced. He started his career in theatre before making the transition to the screen with small roles in Oscar-winner The Goodbye Girl and the notorious Cruising, then got his break as the Reverend Jim Jones in TV movie Guyana Tragedy, for which he received an Emmy - he controversially accepted it during an actors' strike, which harmed his reputation though he backed the action.

Southern Comfort was his next major role, but it was three years before he was back in front of the cameras with A Breed Apart, Red Dawn and The Emerald Forest. Once re-established, he never looked back on TV and film alike, with roles in Extreme Prejudice, Rapid Fire, Tombstone, Sudden Death, Nixon, U-Turn, Frailty, the Justice League cartoons (as Gorilla Grodd), Sin City, Deadwood (As Cy Tolliver), 24, MacGruber, The Avengers and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. With his confident, no-nonsense air and rich voice, he was a scene stealer for sure.
