LOS ANGELESóDennis Hopper, the high-flying Hollywood wild man whose memorable and erratic career included an early turn in "Rebel Without a Cause," an improbable smash with "Easy Rider" and a classic character role in "Blue Velvet," has died. He was 74.

Hopper died Saturday at his home in the Los Angeles beach community of Venice, surrounded by family and friends, family friend Alex Hitz said. Hopper's manager announced in October 2009 that the actor-director had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Definately not a well-known actor amongst my fellow younger generation, but will always remember his role in the movie "Hoosiers'. Pretty good actor altogether.

And now this from the Mercury News out of Silicon Valley. The woman he was trying to divorce is now claiming she's entitled to millions from his estate. Hope she doesn't get a dime but of course there will have to be a settlement. He claimes she stole many valuable items from him. I enjoyed his work. A lot of us have seen him in movies without realizing who we were looking at. He never got the name recognition he deserved but he was a heck of an actor.

He did a few commericals for Ameriprise recently. A very nice looking man for his age.

Here are links to some of his commericals.

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body.

Rather it should be to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand and the Good Book in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO-HOO what a ride!"

Was Dennis Hopper in Speed?

He attacked everything in life with a mix of extraordinary genius and naive incompetence, and it was often difficult to tell which was which.

I'm surprised some people on this thread don't know who Dennis Hopper is. I think he's a big name in the movie industry.

His service was in Taos yesterday. It was all over the newspapers in New Mexico when I was there earlier this week. Parts of Easy Rider were filmed in my hometown.

My favorite Dennis Hopper movie was Giant with Rock Hudson, Elizabeth Taylor, and James Dean.
