Looking over that list of credits, I see many films where I didn't remember it was Bill Paxton.  I didn't remember he was in Edge of Tomorrow, I forgot that he was in Aliens, Twister, Tombstone...  Some actors, from the moment they appear on screen your brain goes "oh hey, it's Robert deNiro" (for example) and refuses to accept them as the character they're trying to portray. Bill Paxton was kind of the opposite. "Oh... the dumb-ass army-guy was Bill Paxton? I didn't even notice!"

That's too bad, from what I understand something went wrong during a surgery. Always an actor that I enjoyed. The wife and I watched the first episode of his new TV reboot Training Day and thought it to be kinda bland......To be honest, Paxton was the only reason we bothered with a network drama.
