      Great actor. Oddly enough, they were showing a film he appeared in called RARE BIRDS yesterday on one of the movie channels. RIP.
      Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

          William Hurt certainly had a strange trajectory to his career. He came in like a rocket with a string of roles in milestone movies from ALTERED STATES, BODY HEAT, BIG CHILL on up to ACCIDENTAL TOURIST. Three straight Best Actor nominations in consecutive years including a win for KISS OF THE SPIDERWOMAN. And, then? He continued to work steadily, but he never again quite got back that A List "it" factor. Personal scandals certainly didn't help, and his cool laid back demeanor sort of kept him from the warm cuddly phase that a Tom Hanks has played off of for years. It was nice to see him have one last major hurrah with the nomination for A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE.
          TV, indies and supporting roles kept him busy (and, I'm sure the Marvel paychecks were nice)
          RIP
