Paul Newman Dies

— Posted by John Campea


One of the absolute best the is, was, or ever will be has past away. Paul Newman has died from cancer at the age of 83.

There really isn’t anything that one can say that hasn’t been said about this icon a thousand times before… and each and everyone of them is true. The man was a legend in the business and a benchmark for which all other leading men in Hollywood were measured for decades.

His performance in Cool Hand Luke was one of the first I saw as a kid where I recognized the difference between a normal actor and a GREAT actor.

His “best of” roles reads like a hollywood all-star list of films. We’ve lost one of the titans.

    He was a true professional and one of the greatest actors of our time. They don’t make them like him anymore.
