RIP Pete Postlethwaite
Today is a very sad day, folks. At 64, we have lost one of the most under-appreciated actors of the past two decades. Maybe you remember him as Kobayashi from The Usual Suspects, or Giuseppe Conlon from In the Name of the Father, or even just his badass five minutes spent cutting roses and chewing out Ben Affleck in The Town, but whether you’ve been on the Postlethwaite bandwagon for years or if he’s always been That Guy, he was no freakin’ joke. Truly a shame, especially when it seemed like he was finally starting to get his due.
You were the man, Pete, and you will be missed.
