Rest In Peace Legendary Actor Harry Dean Stanton

In Memoriam Influential People We've Lost This Year

Stanton was also nearly always cast as a crook, a codger, an eccentric or a loser. Those eager to delve into more of Stanton's work, however, will be able to catch him in Lucky, which will hit theaters on September 29. Ultimately, Stanton decided it was "too much work" to be a leading man.

Read below for a sampling of tweets honoring the late actor.

Two 1984 films cemented his reputation in Hollywood: "Repo Man" and "Paris, Texas". The movie won awards, and Stanton's performance was lauded. His sadly stoic conveyance of a monolog of contrition to his better half, played by Nastassja Kinski, through a restricted mirror has turned into the pivotal turning point in his vocation, in a part he said was his top pick.

After the success of "Paris, Texas", more notable roles followed for Stanton.

The film's promotional account tweeted about the death of the film's star.

His legend would only grow.

At that time, Nicolas Cage shared his thoughts about Stanton after they starred in "Wild at Heart".

Star Wars actor Mark Hamill and Twin Peaks creator David Lynch were among the names of film and TV to lead tributes to Stanton.

"Everyone loved him. And with good reason", Lynch said.

Since 2011, the Kentucky city of Lexington each year has hosted a Harry Dean Stanton Festival. You are really going to be missed Hary Dean! He's got this easygoing nature. Lynch, in turn, said: "Yep!" "He's got a great inner peace". "It's one of those actors who knows that his face is part of story", said novelist and actor at Harry Dean Stanton: Partly Fiction (2012).

We could see in The Godfather II and Coup de coeur de Francis Ford Coppola, Alien - the eighth passenger of Ridley Scott, The last temptation of Christ of Martin Scorsese, She's so lovely, and Alpha Dog by Nick Cassavetes, ... Stanton's ex-cowboy Lucky is the core of the film, a lifelong smoker - not dissimilar to Stanton himself - who is shaken to pursue something greater after an accident.

Afterward, he utilized music as an escape from his folks' quarreling and the occasionally severe treatment he was subjected to by his dad. As an adult, he fronted his own band for years, playing western, Mexican, rock and pop standards in small venues around Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley.

Stanton was also a musician and singer, performing regularly in Los Angeles.
