    Sorry to hear this, really like this actor, was brilliant in Crash. You don’t hear much about him in the news, too bad it has to be this.

    “too bad it has to be this”…it’s not like he was killed or anything!

    ‘Crash’ sucked! Now, ‘The Outsiders’ was a great movie!

    Wow, we must be on the same wavelength! No, wait, that was Jo & ke, wasn’t it? Anyway, the Outsiders was a really great movie, I still watch it whenever it’s on tv.
    One thing I have to ask though, is the charge actually “driving like a lunatic”, or was that just the writers at tribute! LOL I thought that was a pretty funny description!
