RIP Powers Boothe

Just the other day we lost Michael Parks and today we’re sad to announce that the legendary Powers Boothe has passed away at the age of 68.

This one hits hard as he starred in several of my very favourite movies from Extreme Prejudice, Tombstone, Sin City, Rapid Fire and Sudden Death. 

At first we believed this to be a hoax but it has since been confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter. They stated that more recently, Boothe took on the role of Gideon Malick as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, debuting the role on The Avengers and reprising it on ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

No cause of death has been revealed as yet.

RIP Mr. Boothe.
