Actor Pete Postlethwaite dies at 64
By the CNN Wire Staff
January 3, 2011 6:48 a.m. EST

He was nominated for an Oscar for "In the Name of the Father"
He also starred in "Inception," "The Usual Suspects" and "Romeo + Juliet"
London (CNN) -- Oscar-nominated actor Pete Postlethwaite, who starred in "Inception" and "The Usual Suspects," has died at the age of 64, his agent said Monday.
Highly intense, with a bulbous nose, high cheekbones and ruddy complexion, the actor was immediately recognizable in films ranging from the second "Jurassic Park" movie to "Romeo + Juliet."
It was for his role as Daniel Day-Lewis's father in the IRA drama "In the Name of the Father" that he got his only Oscar nomination, for best supporting actor. He lost out to Tommy Lee Jones for "The Fugitive."
Postlethwaite died of cancer, British media reported.

Man, that sucks. I always enjoyed when he'd pop up in movies. Only a few days ago I mentioned to a friend that I really liked him. What a shame

great character actor that will be missed, and 64 seems pretty young nowadays.

Sad day for British acting. Pete has been filmed for the Killing Bono movie coming out this year.

He was really good in The Town, a fairly big part. He did look extra thin.

Kobayashi in The Usual Suspects stands out for me.

I can barely remember him in Inception (one scene), he played the dying father.

Oh Brassed Off, haven't seen that in years but it was good! I loved him in Dragonheart, he was really funny in that. Sad news.

^Aw, I didn't know that


He has been in so many great films, very unappreciated. At least he left with a bang, 2 fantastic movies in 2010: Inception and The Town
