RIP, Nice Guy Eddie

Sad stuff. Between Reservoir Dogs, Footloose and his cameo in Entourage where he plays himself and won't give Johnny Drama $10K for calf implants, this guy was a true thespian.

Hey, does this look like the vision of health who'd die at 40? Eh, well, throw in the legendary Penn lifestyle, the likely usage of speedballs and the fact he used to look like this, and 40 seems like a blessing.

Nice Guy Eddie's "Don't point that gun at my dad!" from Reservoir Dogs is one of the most underrated movie lines in history. So whiny, yet so threatening.

That article says, "He was 40, according to police, although most reports put his age as 43."

Was he lying about his age to everyone like a chic?

No, it's the opposite...most articles said, 43, but he's really 40. He was over-inflating his age.

I originally had 43 posted on here, but then I read this story and changed it up. Checking IMDB, he was indeed 40, not 43. Weird.

DHodge, great call. He basically steals that movie...

Kinda creepy that his new movie, "a black comedy about unusual suicides" was scheduled to premiere today at Sundance.
Do you think he said to himself, “Shit, I’m a fat, stung out bastard. I can’t keep this up forever, I’m gonna die soon anyway. I might as well time it with the premier and hopefully get my own E! True Hollywood Story!”

That's a great line, dhodge, but this has to be the greatest line in movie history by an actor talking about his ex-sister-in-law:

You don't remember "True Blue?" That was a big-ass hit for Madonna.

Of course, it's also the only line I can think of in movie history by an actor talking about his ex-sister-in-law.

Also, I want to repeat something I wrote in this thread: I've always found it odd that Nice Guy Eddie said, "I'd go over twelve percent for that." Isn't going over twelve percent the norm? Pretty much everyone I know tips a minimum of fifteen percent, so I'm a little surprised that Nice Guy Eddie sees going over twelve as something outlandish.

I wanted to double-check to make sure I had that quote accurately, and I found the Reservoir Dogs script online. But here's the weird thing. Read the famous opening scene, and you can see that whoever put this together has the wrong names in front of the lines of dialogue. How could a mistake like this happen?
