    Such a genuinely nice guy and a wonderful actor.

    Actor Chris Penn dead, no sign of foul play: report

    January 24, 2006 22:19:10
    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actor Chris Penn has died in a Santa Monica residence, with no signs of foul play, a local ABC television affiliate reported on Tuesday.
    Penn, 43, was the brother of actor Sean Penn and starred in dozens of films.
    He played baby-faced criminal Nice Guy Eddie Cabot in director Quentin Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs" and starred along with his brother in the 1986 film "At Close Range." He also played Willard Hewitt in "Footloose" in 1984.
    Recently, Penn voiced Officer Eddie Pulaski in the video game "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas."
    Santa Monica police and the Los Angeles County Coroner were not immediately available for comment.

There are just things that you need to talk to other women with. You may have the best relationship in the world with your husband, but there are just times you need your girlfriends. It makes for a healthier and happier you which makes everything else you do better.

              Wow, he's one of our favorite character actors. My husband is going to hate this news!! We loved him in several movies with Michael Madsen, they did a few together...we kinda pictured them hanging out together all tough-like in real life. I especially loved him in True Romance.

              Damn.

                  This is a really sad loss. My guess on the circumstances, heart failure. Or some other problem caused by the fact that he was a pretty big guy, not in very good shape it seemed. He may not have been as a big of a star as his brother, but he seemed like a much more down to earth guy and i liked that.

                            Update: Police Investigate Actor Mark Ruffalo
                            By TMZ.COM STAFF


                            (Feb. 6) -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ the Culver City Police Department is investigating allegations that actor Mark Ruffalo assaulted a photographer and committed theft.

                            TMZ broke the story about the incident that occurred at Chris Penn's funeral last Saturday. Sean Penn, Chris' brother, allegedly got into an altercation with the photographer and Mark Ruffalo allegedly seized the photographer's video card out of his camera.

                            Ruffalo, who has appeared in a number of films including 'Just Like Heaven' and 'Collateral,' most recently co-starred with Jennifer Aniston in 'Rumor Has It.'

                            The photographer went to the Culver City PD after the funeral and filed a criminal complaint.

                            An official with the Culver City Police Depatment told TMZ that his department has taken note that the photographer was on private property without permission. The incident occurred on the grounds of Holy Cross Cemetary in Culver City, Calif.

                              Homage to Chris Penn - Double Feature:

                              Chris Penn, brother to Sean and a Los Angeles homeboy, was a consummately professional actor, constantly working in his chosen profession, always delivering spot-on performances and enhancing everything he appeared in. He will be sorely missed.

                              RESERVOIR DOGS, 1992, Miramax, 99 min. Director self-assured feature debut pits five criminals of different temperament, strangers to each other, brought together by an elderly mastermind (perfectly cast Lawrence Tierney) against an undercover cop who sabotages their jewelry store heist. A riveting saga told in disjointed time with bravura characterizations, spotlighted in the fraternal bonding of Mr. White (Harvey Keitel) and Mr. Orange (Tim Roth), the sadistic antics of psychotic Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen), the foul-mouthed comments of Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi) and last, but not least, the versatile Chris PennTHE FUNERAL, 1996, Focus Features, 99 min. One of the all-time greatest, most underrated efforts by director Abel Ferrara (BAD LIEUTENANT). Elder Christopher Walken and seething Chris Penn are gangster brothers lamenting the death of their youngest sibling, Johnny (Vincent Gallo) and trying to figure out just who will pay for his untimely demise. A real tour de force in every respect, especially in its relentless, probing focus on characters, with a cumulative effect at the climax that is awe-inspiring. An ensemble piece, finely written by Ferrara and Nicholas St. John, and performed faultlessly by a fine cast, including Annabella Sciorra as Jean, the rational conscience of the family, Isabella Rossellini, Benicio Del Toro, Gretechen Moll. Arguably most nuanced and emotionally-wrenching performance.
