Dennis Hopper is a well known actor and director. He is also well know for being out of his fucking mind. )){u=

Here is Dennis Hopper.

Here is Dennis Hopper as a neo-nazi (who later meets a living Hitler).

Here is Dennis Hopper as a dual-chainsaw wielding sheriff who fights Leatherface.

Just The Facts

  1. Dennis Hopper is an actor well know for his performances in Blue Velvet and Easy Rider, which he also directed.
  2. He is also known as a somewhat obscure painter.

The Beginning

Dennis was born in the year of 1936 in Dodge City, Kansas and considering his basassery, the location of his birthplace does not surprise me in the least.

The red dot indicates the obvious explosion that occurred on the day of his birth.

From there, he went on to study at the Kansas City Art Institute, the Old Globe Theater in San Diego and the Actors Studio in New York, whose alumni include James Dean, Marlon Brando, and Jack Nicholson.

I'm surprised the world could handle that much insanity in one place.

Career

From there, Mr, Hopper went on to have relatively small parts in two films that have a reasonably well known actor in cinema.

The actor was James Dean.

The films were Rebel Without A Cause and Giant.

"How could God grant me so much awesome in an adaptation of my book?!"

Afterwords, Hopper appeared in an aforementioned episode of The Twilight Zone (amongst other things) before starring with Peter Fonda in his arguably most acclaimed film.

An obvious recipe for success.

After the prosperity of Easy Rider, Hopper had one more prominent role in Francis For Coppola's Apocalypse Now before fading into relative obscurity...

...Until one man saved him.

And that man is David Lynch.

Hopper's performance in Blue Velvet truly immortalized him on film as a crazy, crazy, CRAZY motherfucker.

For example:

Unfortunately, after the success of Blue Velvet, he would star in the shameful role of King Koopa in the Super Mario Bros. movie.

And still be worth watching.

Tragedy

In October of last year, it was announced that Dennis was in the latter stages of prostate cancer. This month, it was announced that he may have only a month to live.

Well.

I have nothing funny to say here.

Welp, here's hoping that Dennis dual chainsaws cancer to death.

And if not...

God's speed, Mr Hopper.

God's speed....

EDIT: Dennis Lee Hopper died May 29, 2010 due to complications from prostate cancer.
