RIP: Pete Postlethwaite (1946-2011)
This morning brought the unfortunate news that Oscar-nominated actor Pete Postlethwaite passed away after a long fight with cancer yesterday. It's always a shame when someone so talented and with such a vibrant, diverse career passes away at such a relatively young age (64). His Oscar-nominated turn in In the Name of the Father ranks up there with the best of them, and is just one great moment in a rich career that deserves to be remembered.
