William Hurt, the Oscar-winning Hollywood leading man best known for his quietly commanding performances in "Body Heat," "Kiss of the Spider Woman," "Children of a Lesser God" and "Broadcast News," died Sunday.
He was 71 — and a few days shy of his 72nd birthday.
Hurt's son, Will, told the Associated Press that his father died of natural causes while surrounded by family.


71 does not seem old; people are living into the late 90's and early 100's.....

Rest in Peace Mr Hurt.

Cancer has a way of keeping you from seeing 90...

William Hurt was a favorite. I had some good friends share a B&B with him a few years ago and told me he was a good guy as well.

Another actor/musician/athlete that I grew up with that is no longer with us. The problem with being in your 60's is that the actor/musician/athlete that I grew up with are now in their 70's and 80s and dying regularly, taking a little bit of me with them each. Just another reminder that we all only have so much runway.

Rest In Peace. I've seen him in a lot of movies and always admired his acting.
