Character Actor Pete Postlethwaite Dead at 64

The great character actor Pete Postlewaite has died after a long battle with cancer. He was 64. Postlethwaite broke into Hollywood in 1993, starring alongside Daniel Day-Lewis in “In the Name of the Father.” Postlethwaite was nominated for an Academy Award for “best supporting actor” for his performance. He also appeared in the “The Usual Suspects” and was once called “probably the best actor in the world” by Steven Spielberg.

Postlethwaite was most recently in the much-acclaimed Christopher Nolan movie “Inception,” as well as Ben Affleck‘s “The Town.”

Not bad, sir.

Postlethwaite was one of the few actors out there who could actually pull off playing working class characters. No tattoos necessary. The guy was legit.
