Paul Newman, RIP

Damn.

Paul Newman, the Academy-Award winning superstar who personified cool as the anti-hero of such films as “Hud,” “Cool Hand Luke” and “The Color of Money” _ and as an activist, race car driver and popcorn impresario _ has died. He was 83

And I’m sure almost no one will mention my favorite movie of his: Blaze

It wasn’t a big hit, but, then again, I guess there aren’t enough people who grew up in the vicinity of Louisiana to appreciate just how fucked up Louisiana politics is – and how Earl K. Long actually was not the nuttiest character to emerge from it but was definitely worth a movie unto himself (and I won’t even mention how hot Lolita Davidovitch was in it as Blaze Starr.)

    Paul Newman is a legend for his work in movies, and he’s a stud for all his work outside of movies
