Never Met a Zombi I Didn’t Like…

DENNIS HOPPER 1936-2010

Dennis 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 he had been diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Hopper had a long career in movies and television and certainly had a strong resurgence in the 90’s with villainous turns in Speed and Waterworld.

My favorite Hopper roles were his alcoholic Assistant Basketball Coach in the classic “Hoosiers” and his wildly wacky role as Lieutenant “Lefty” Enright in Tobe Hopper’s very strange Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Both of these films, along with Blue Velvet, were released in 1986. Hopper will be missed.
