Powers Boothe Dead at 68

According to his publicist, award-winning actor Powers Boothe passed away in his Los Angeles home on Sunday, May 14 at age 68. Reportedly he died of natural causes.

A private service will be held for the actor in Texas.

His family is also working on plans to hold a public memorial celebration for him sometime next week.

Boothe is probably best known for his role as cult leader Jim Jones in the TV film Guyana Tragedy: The Story of Jim Jones.

Personally, I will always remember him for his role as Curly Bill Brocius in the movie Tombstone. He was a great actor and left us with a time of great pieces of work to remember him by. He definitely will be missed.
