    ?Easy Rider? star Dennis Hopper dies at 74 - Celebrities - TODAY Show


    LOS ANGELES — Dennis Hopper, the high-flying Hollywood wild man whose memorable and erratic career included an early turn in "Rebel Without a Cause," an improbable smash with "Easy Rider" and a classic character role in "Blue Velvet," has died. He was 74.
    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.

    I really don't consider Coleman and actor....He was a child that was in the right place at the right time. He had no talent as was evident in his adult career.

    Sad, but not totally unexpected knowing his condition.

    An excellent actor, he avoided easy roles and ook on hard stuff, just made it look easy.

    Darn, one of the things that shows when you get older is you begin to realize all your favorite celebs are gone ... OY!

    RIP Dennis, we will continue to enjoy what you gave us.
