Even in death he can't escape being confused with Bill Pullman. As the obituary blrup on the Norwegian online news claimed he was in Independence Day…

Didn't see that one. I did see he died. Sad, I really liked him…

He was a hometown boy, born and raised in Fort Worth. It's been on the Internet for years, but Mr. Paxton was a part of a tragic episode in American history as he was an eight-year old boy lifted up on someone's shoulders to see President John F. Kennedy outside the Hotel Texas in Fort Worth on the morning of November 22, 1963:

LOTS of great roles. His very first movie appearance was an uncredited role in 1975's 'Crazy Mama', and his last will be in a film entitled 'The Circle'. He will be sorely missed.

Godspeed, Mr. Paxton, and thank you very, very much.

I enjoyed his work. RIP

He will always be remembered for his portrayal of the defeatist and luckless Pvt. Hudson in 'Aliens,' but some of his best work are in villainous roles, like 'Near Dark' and 'Marvel's Agents of SHIELD.' May he rest in peace.

Played some good parts in some good movies, a lot of them amoung my favourites.

Mind numbing that Aliens was 31 years ago!

Thanks Bill.

That's horrible news. Just this week my wife and I were discussing how he was one of the most under appreciated actors around. He could play a variety of roles and they were always unique and entertaining.

On top of that I recently watched (for the 4th time I think) the film Frailty, which was his directorial debut. He also played a really intense main character in that movie.

Wow. He will definitely be missed.
