Dennis Hopper has passed away – "Now it’s dark…"

I’m shocked and saddened by the news that actor-writer-director Dennis Hopper died yesterday. He was best known for his roles in films like Apocalypse Now, Easy Rider, Blue Velvet and Hoosiers, but Dennis was also an accomplished painter and photographer. He was truly an inspiring artist. I loved many of his films and his artwork interested me, too.
