Iconic Hollywood actor Powers Boothe passed away over the weekend at 68 years old.
Here's a snippet from this morning's Gazette:
Among Boothe’s many screen roles was a starring role in the 2007 film “The Final Season,” which told the story of the last season of Norway, Iowa’s renowned baseball team.
“Powers Boothe is dynamic as gritty coach Jim Van Scoyoc, who was forced out of his job by the superintendent pushing for consolidation with fictional Madison Community School (Benton Community in real life),” read a review of the movie by Gazette entertainment writer Diana Nollen. “Boothe brings an intensity to the role amplified by the wisdom etched in his face.”
Boothe also appeared in several comic book shows and movies, portraying Senator Roark in “Sin City” and its sequel “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” (pictured above). He also had a small role in “The Avengers.”
We'll be talking about his career on Drive Time 380 this afternoon including (hopefully) a visit with Kent Stock, the coach of the Norway Baseball team in which the movie was based.
