Pete Postlethwaite 1946 - 2011

Postlethwaite was immediately recognizable to anyone that is even marginal in their movie viewing. From performances in Romeo and Juliet, The Shipping News, Mel Gibson's version of Hamlet, Alien 3, and as recently as Inception. The man is a character actor of the highest order.

Tragically, he lost his battle with cancer last night:

British acting legend Pete Postlethwaite has passed away in hospital. He was 64. The Warrington-born actor - who was nominated for an Oscar in 1994 for his turn in In The Name Of The Father - died yesterday (January 2) in Shropshire, reports the The Guardian

Postlethwaite had been undergoing treatment for cancer, despite continuing to work and appearing last year in bank heist hit The Town. His other career credits include The Constant Gardener, Brassed Off, Romeo + Juliet and The Usual Suspects.
