Remembering Bill Paxton’s Brush With Video Games In Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare

Earlier this morning the world was shocked to hear that acclaimed actor Bill Paxton had passed away at age 61 due to complications from surgery. Paxton wasn’t the flashiest actor in Hollywood, often inhabiting the role of the down-to-Earth straight man, but he made a name for himself in movies and TV shows like Aliens, Apollo 13, Twister, and Big Love. Paxton’s overall legacy won’t be soon forgotten, but some may not remember he once starred in a video game.

Way too young to die from 'complications from surgery'. That's usually something you hear from someone in their 80s or older :(

Life expectancy for men in the United States is 76, so, yes, 61 is young.

It is if I say to you that you will live to 100, that's 40 years.

We're living longer as Science improves.

Judging by your name, you can't be much more than that.

As a kid he drove me crazy in some of those 80's movies...but the nostalgia is inescapable, they all wouldn't have worked without him.

Nice night for a walk.

Can't tell you how many times I heard that line playing Alien 3 on my SNES. That game was freaking awesome!

Seriously though, Bill Paxton will always be an icon because of films like Aliens and Weird Science, and he will be missed.

For whatever reason I was obsessed with Twister when i was a kid. I'm very sure part of it has to do with Pill Paxman's character. The man is a great talent and he'll be missed by all. Thanks for being part of all my childhood movies Bill.
