Director Tony Scott Commits Suicide, Jumps Off LA Bridge

HollywoodNews.com: Film director Tony Scott, apparently commits suicide by jumping off Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro. Investigators found a suicide note in his car, which was parked on the bridge.

Anthony D. L. “Tony” Scott (June 21, 1944 – August 19, 2012) was an English film director. His films include Top Gun, Beverly Hills Cop II, The Last Boy Scout, True Romance, Crimson Tide, Enemy of the State, Spy Game, Man on Fire, Déjà Vu, The Taking of Pelham 123 and Unstoppable. He was the younger brother of fellow film director Ridley Scott.

Scott was born in North Shields, the son of Elizabeth and Colonel Francis Percy Scott. At the age of 16, Tony appeared in Boy and Bicycle, a short film marking the directorial debut of his then 23 year-old brother Ridley. He followed in his elder brother’s footsteps, studying at Grangefield School, West Hartlepool College of Art and Sunderland Art School, the last for a fine arts degree. He subsequently graduated from the Royal College of Art, fully intending to become a painter. It was only the success of his elder brother’s fledging television commercial production outfit, Ridley Scott Associates (RSA), that turned his attentions towards film.
