I remember him mostly for his role in Red Dawn and as Curly Bill in Tombstone.

That's a bummer. I thought he was terrific in Southern Comfort.

gave a really terrific performance as Jim Jones in the miniseries Guyana Tragedy on CBS.

RIP.

Just recently did a great stint on Agents of SHIELD, picking up as the lead heel after they killed off his longtime buddy Bill Paxton (they met on Tombstone and then Paxton cast Powers in Frailty). Crazy they'd pass within such proximity.

I thought he was fantastic as Cy Tolliver in the TV series Deadwood. As Stephen said, he seemed to be very good in everything he did.

In a movie of immortal one-liners, the best line in Tombstone might well be:

"Well......bye"

Great character actor - lent credibility to every project, big or small, he was involved in.

A fine actor with a great voice. I first became aware of him in the Jim Jones movie that was posted above. That was just such a commanding performance. And then of course all the work he did after that. And I really liked him in that Hatfield and McCoys series that was on a few years ago with Kevin Costner. A great character on a great miniseries.

I forgot he was in Hatfields and McCoys. That's (arguably) two of the three leads to have passed away in a matter of weeks with Bill Paxton too.

He was really good as Phillip Marlowe. And had a small role in Cruising with Al Pacino as the store owner that explains the 'Hanky Code' to Al Pacino.

He did a film with Nick Nolte about twenty-five or more years ago. Can't recall the name of it, but Mr. Boothe more than held his own with Nolte.

Extreme Prejudice is the movie you are thinking of.

Sad to see this. He was a very good actor in everything. Someone mentioned 'Frailty'- hell of an underrated movie.

Another film I loved (and I seem to be in the minority) was U-Turn, a really blackly comic movie.
