Death Summary: ...

Who was Dennis Hopper : Hopper was an actor, artist, and filmmaker. He got his start starring opposite James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause and Giant. He received critical praise for directing and starring in Easy Rider, a film in which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay.

After Easy Rider, Hopper's career sort of cooled off until he was cast in Apocalypse Now opposite Marlon Brando and Robert Duvall. Around the same time he also appeared in Rumble Fish, The Osterman Weekend, Blue Velvet and Hoosiers.

Hopper was married 5 separate times: Brooke Hayward (1961-1969) - Michelle Phillips (1970) - Daria Halprin (1972-1976) - Katherine LaNasa (1989-1992) - Victoria Duffy (1996-present)

On October 29, 2009 Hopper's manager, Sam Maydew, stated that the actor had been diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. To combat the disease Hopper was undergoing special treatments at the University of Southern California. Over the coming weeks his condition reporedly worsened dramatically.

In a surprising turn of events, Hopper filed for divorce from his wife, Victoria Duffy-Hopper, citing "irreconcilable differences". Many questioned why he would file for divorce, from what many to believe his deathbed. Some believe it's a money thing, as Hopper wanted his eldest daughter, Marin Hopper, to be the executor of his will not his current wife of 14 years.

In mid January 2010, it was reported that Hopper's cancer had spread to his bones and that he may only have a month to live.

    I’m not sure why there are dots for his cause of death. It was prostate cancer that got the better of him…You were a great actor Dennis. Even though you were credited as a ‘B’ actor, I think you were the A out of all the Bs. We know that you are looking down, being proud of your hollywood star. Rest in peace

  35. Abe Says:

    This is getting a bit more suijbcteve, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of neighbors will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune Social is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
