R.I.P. Pete Postlethwaite

Some pretty crappy news coming out of the entertainment world today. Pete Postlethwaite, one of the most recognizable character actors around, died today at the age of 64 from complications from cancer. I'll always remember him best as the tricky lawyer Kobayashi from the Usual Suspects but in the last year alone, even with the cancer, he was able to star in Inception, The Town, and Clash of the Titans (though I bet he wishes he could take that one back).

He leaves behind his wife Jacqui and two children: Will, 21, and daughter Lily, 14. Thanks for the memories, Pete, you won't be forgotten.
