May 17, 1936 – May 29, 2010
I loved Hopper. He was smart, funny, and altogether human. His artistic expression reached far beyond acting. He was a photographer, painter, sculptor, poet, writer, and director.
He was a wonderful guest on the Late Late Show – he and Craig Ferguson shared a birthday. They also shared a love of art and humor. He comes in right around the one minute mark in this video.
Dennis Hopper died of complications related to prostate cancer.
Sleep well, Mr. Hopper. You will be missed.
