    Farewell to Chris Penn

    Such a genuinely nice guy and a wonderful actor.

    Actor Chris Penn dead, no sign of foul play: report

    January 24, 2006 22:19:10
    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actor Chris Penn has died in a Santa Monica residence, with no signs of foul play, a local ABC television affiliate reported on Tuesday.
    Penn, 43, was the brother of actor Sean Penn and starred in dozens of films.
    He played baby-faced criminal Nice Guy Eddie Cabot in director Quentin Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs" and starred along with his brother in the 1986 film "At Close Range." He also played Willard Hewitt in "Footloose" in 1984.
    Recently, Penn voiced Officer Eddie Pulaski in the video game "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas."
    Santa Monica police and the Los Angeles County Coroner were not immediately available for comment.

    Actor Chris Penn has died in Santa Monica, Calif., PEOPLE has confirmed. He was 40.

    Santa Monica police say there is no evidence of foul play in the death of the actor, whose brother is Sean Penn.

    "The Penn family would appreciate the media’s respect of their privacy during this difficult time," the family's rep said in a statement given to PEOPLE on Tuesday.

    Penn, who has more than 50 acting credits to his name, has starred in such films as Reservoir Dogs, At Close Range, Mulholland Falls, Short Cuts and Footloose.

    The California-native comes from a true show-business family: In addition to his Oscar-winning brother Sean, his brother Michael is a musician, his father, Leo, was a television director and mom Eileen Ryan is an actress.

    Re: Farewell to Chris Penn

    Wow, he's one of our favorite character actors. My husband is going to hate this news!! We loved him in several movies with Michael Madsen, they did a few together...we kinda pictured them hanging out together all tough-like in real life. I especially loved him in True Romance.

    Damn.

    Re: Farewell to Chris Penn

    This is a really sad loss. My guess on the circumstances, heart failure. Or some other problem caused by the fact that he was a pretty big guy, not in very good shape it seemed. He may not have been as a big of a star as his brother, but he seemed like a much more down to earth guy and i liked that.

    Sundance Diary: Winona Ryder, Joseph Fiennes, and more


    Yesterday’s big premiere movie was The Darwin Awards, a kind of high-brow screwball comedy from Sundance vet director Finn Taylor (Cherish) starring Winona Ryder and Joseph Fiennes (pictured), and just about everyone else with a SAG card: David Arquette, Juliette Lewis, Tim Blake Nelson, Nora Dunn, Lukas Haas, and the always hilarious, inimitable Judah Friedlander (American Splendor). Also among the supporting cast was Chris Penn, who died on Tuesday. At the Q&A following the screening, Finn and Ryder had lovely things to say about Penn. "He wasn’t just Sean’s little brother,” the actress said, holding back tears.

    Homage to Chris Penn - Double Feature:

    Chris Penn, brother to Sean and a Los Angeles homeboy, was a consummately professional actor, constantly working in his chosen profession, always delivering spot-on performances and enhancing everything he appeared in. He will be sorely missed.

    RESERVOIR DOGS, 1992, Miramax, 99 min. Director Quentin Tarantino’s self-assured feature debut pits five criminals of different temperament, strangers to each other, brought together by an elderly mastermind (perfectly cast Lawrence Tierney) against an undercover cop who sabotages their jewelry store heist. A riveting saga told in disjointed time with bravura characterizations, spotlighted in the fraternal bonding of Mr. White (Harvey Keitel) and Mr. Orange (Tim Roth), the sadistic antics of psychotic Mr. Blonde (Michael Madsen), the foul-mouthed comments of Mr. Pink (Steve Buscemi) and last, but not least, the versatile Chris Penn as Nice Guy Eddie Cabot, Tierney’s faithful son.

    THE FUNERAL, 1996, Focus Features, 99 min. One of the all-time greatest, most underrated efforts by director Abel Ferrara (BAD LIEUTENANT). Elder Christopher Walken and seething Chris Penn are gangster brothers lamenting the death of their youngest sibling, Johnny (Vincent Gallo) and trying to figure out just who will pay for his untimely demise. A real tour de force in every respect, especially in its relentless, probing focus on characters, with a cumulative effect at the climax that is awe-inspiring. An ensemble piece, finely written by Ferrara and Nicholas St. John, and performed faultlessly by a fine cast, including Annabella Sciorra as Jean, the rational conscience of the family, Isabella Rossellini, Benicio Del Toro, Gretechen Moll. Arguably Chris Penn’s most nuanced and emotionally-wrenching performance.
