In the Memory of Patrick Swayze

I've seen this movie Patrick played a drag queen in "To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar", cracked me up, a very funny movie.

He has played in movie like "Next of Kin", Steel Dawn, Roadhouse also he did in his famous “Chippendales” sketch with Chris Farley on “Saturday Night Live.”

Also he was in the movie called the " The Outsiders" and tv show "The Beast".

Patrick Swayze
An athlete practically from birth, Patrick Swayze was a football player in high school and then earned a gymnastics scholarship to pay for college. His father had been a dancer/choreographer, and Swayze began to study dance early on, eventually working with the prestigious Harkness and Joffrey Ballet companies. He made his professional debut as a dancer with the lead role of Prince Charming in a traveling company of Disney on Parade, but an old knee injury from his football days threatened to cut his dancing career short at any moment. Hedging his bets, Swayze opened his repertoire up to acting as well. He made the transition to Broadway, landing the role of Danny in the hit Broadway musical Grease before heading to Los Angeles to make yet another transition -- this time to the screen. Swayze cut his teeth on TV guest appearances, scoring a memorable role as dying soldier in an episode of M*A*S*H. Finally, he got a role in Francis Ford Coppola's youth ensemble film The Outsiders (1983), a film of massive critical acclaim and box-office success. Steadily continuing his upward trajectory, he followed up The Outsiders with the Cold War classic Red Dawn (1984) and with the Civil War TV miniseries North and South (1985). His real big break came in 1987, however, with a starring role in the hit Dirty Dancing. The film gave Swayze the chance to showcase both his acting and dancing abilities and, additionally, he wrote and performed one of the film's songs, "She's Like the Wind," which went on to become a major hit. The role made Swayze an undisputed star, and he scored big again with a tough-guy role in the movie Road House, as well as the romantic lead in the supernatural drama Ghost (1990) -- a box-office smash that ended up grossing more than 200 million dollars. The '90s had started out for Swayze with a bang, but with so much of his success wrapped up in the films of the 1980s, the actor soon found himself fighting against the mentality that he was out of date. He found iconic roles like surfer Bodhi in the police thriller Point Break and even played a drag queen in 1995's To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar, but transitioning into the next phase of his career proved challenging. In 2001, Swayze found a film to help him facilitate this change with the role of self-help guru Jim Cunningham in the dark mystery drama Donnie Darko. There was an element of self-parody in Swayze's portrayal of the über-positive, clean-cut Cunningham, and audiences found the role refreshing. He continued to pick up projects as they appealed to him, appearing in everything from the romantic drama One Last Dance to the quirky British comedy Keeping Mum. ~ Cammila Albertson, All Movie Guide.

He will be dearly missed and good things is he's no longer in pain anymore, is in peace forever.
It's very sad :(

I don't know how many people know him but Keith Floyd, an English chef also died today. I grew up watching him, he will be missed also.

Keith Floyd
Wow, No way?! :(

Patrick Swayze was my all-time favorite actor. I grew up watching him in his various films such as Road House, Black Dog, Ghost, Dirty Dancing, North & South, so and on. I'm deeply saddened by this.

I knew he was battling with pancreatic cancer for a while. Unfortunately, his body could not be able to battle it any longer.

Rest in Peace, Patrick Swazye.

YES, I watched him in his all movies and he was my favourite actor too.
I loved his movies, Red Dawn and Ghost was my favorites.

R.I.P. Patrick

Why is a AWESOME to be deaf! I do not understand this.

OFF TOPIC to whatdidyousay.

Then you will never understand how my deafness make me a better person to know that living in the hearing world is not what it crack up to be in a noisy world. Look at the hearing people complaining about their loud noisy environement and they have to live with their hearing the sounds that they don't like. I am getting older which I am over 60 years old and that to me it is still awesome to be Deaf no matter what everyone think. This is my happiness. :cool2: :roll:
Funny thing that we did watching "The Red Dawn" movie same day (Sept, 14, 2009) he died which we did not know that - Oh wow!!

RIP ~ Patrick Swayze!
NCAA Prez and then Indiana Univ. Prez Brand just died from pancrea cancer today just like Patrick did. So it's definitely deadly!
RIP Patrick. My condolences to his friends and family.

I can't believe it has been almost twenty years since Ghost came out.
