Legendary character actor Harry Dean Stanton, who starred in 'Alien', 'Twin Peaks', 'Repo Man' and 'Paris, Texas,' has died at the age of 91.
He died Friday afternoon of natural causes at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, his agent, John Kelly, told The Hollywood Reporter.
Stanton had been working for decades as a character actor and was well into his 50s when he got his first lead role, playing Travis, a man and father broken by unrequited love, in Wim Wenders' classic road movie 'Paris, Texas' (1984).
He also guest starred on TV shows as 'Laverne & Shirley,' 'Adam-12' and 'Gunsmoke.'
He had a cameo on 'Two and a Half Men,' which featured 'Pretty in Pink' star Jon Cryer, and appeared in such movies as 'The Avengers" and 'The Last Stand.'
His most recent film, 'Lucky,' about an atheist who comes to terms with his own mortality, is set to be released by Magnolia on September 29.
