Bill Paxton Dies At 61

We were all quite shocked this morning hearing of the passing of the iconic and diverse actor Bill Paxton. He isn’t known as a Disney staple but he has acted in a few of their films – “Spy Kids 2 & 3”, “Might Joe Young”, “Million Dollar Arm” and most recently an early regular of ABC’s “Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.”

Paxton’s family released this statement:
“It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Bill Paxton has passed away due to complications from surgery. A loving husband and father, Bill began his career in Hollywood working on films in the art department and went on to have an illustrious career spanning four decades as a beloved and prolific actor and filmmaker. Bill’s passion for the arts was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth and tireless energy were undeniable. We ask to please respect the family’s wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their adored husband and father.”

He was 61, and is survived by his second wife and two children.
