Hollywoodnews.com: Keyser Soze’s going to need another assistant.
British character actor Pete Postlethwaite lost his battle with cancer late Sunday, passing away in a hospital at the age of 64.
The Oscar-nominated actor’s death was confirmed by Andrew Richardson, a journalist and Postlethwaite’s long-time friend, according to the AP.
Though Postlethwaite was nominated for his performance alongside Daniel Day-Lewis in Jim Sheridan’s 1993 film “In The Name Of The Father,” he’s probably better known for menacing roles in “The Lost World: Jurassic Park,” “The Last of the Mohicans” and, of course, “The Usual Suspects.”
Postlethwaite wasn’t slowed by his cancer. Last year, he appeared in such critical and commercial hits as Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” and Ben Affleck’s “The Town.”
According to IMDB, he’ll be in one more film: “Killing Bono,” a comedy directed by Nick Hamm about brothers who envy the U2 frontman’s success.
