Dennis Hopper in Crash

Dennis Hopper has lost his battle with cancer, as Fox News reported several hours ago, and has died at the age of 74.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and peers.

Cinema Static says thank you Dennis, for all your wonderfully assertive and crazy roles that you have delivered over the years. Thanks for the 125+ movies you’ve made. See if you can spot a favorite in this quick list of films:
