Publicist: Patrick Swayze dies at 57
8 mins ago
LOS ANGELES – Patrick Swayze has died after a nearly two-year battle with pancreatic cancer.
Swayze's publicist Annett Wolf says the 57-year-old "Dirty Dancing" actor died Monday with family at his side. He came forward about his illness last spring, but continued working as he underwent treatments.
It was 1987 when Swayze became a star with his performance in "Dirty Dancing," a coming-of-age story set in a Catskills resort. The 1990 film "Ghost" cemented his status as a screen favorite.
Swayze played a murdered man trying to communicate with his fiancee through a spirit played by Whoopi Goldberg.
He kept on working even after it was disclosed in March 2008 that he had a particularly deadly form of cancer. He starred in "The Beast," an A&E drama series, and said he and his wife were working on a memoir.
Dont Yahoo regularly report incorrect stories, I heard them do something like this before.

It's not just Yahoo, it's the AP. Besides that denial was about reports this morning these reports just came out ten minutes ago. :shrug:

"Outsiders", "Red Dawn"; he was in some of the coolest movies of my teens before he became a big star...
...and we'll always have "Roadhouse" :cool:
Seriously, I do admire they way he stared death in the face with bravery and a positive attitude. :angel:

LOVED his films, and his character portrayals. :worship:

I actually thought he was too overwrought in "Ghost," but he did an outstanding job as Orry Main in "North and South." And his Chippendales SNL sketch with Chris Farley was absolutely hilarious... Sad that both of them are dead now. Rest in peace!!!
Sep 15th, 2009, 09:52 AM
Oh, I thought he passed away quite a few years ago. I'm not very well informed with the news from across the Ocean:lol:
Sep 15th, 2009, 10:18 AM

:sad: Such a shame. Can't say I'm too surprised though after how long he's been battling his cancer.
Like the other poster said, I think most of the SNL skit with Chris Farley when I think of Patrick. He will definitely be missed. RIP. :angel:

You do realize that everyone rests in peace. Nice sentiment though.

Ghost was the first movie I saw at the cinemas, when i was 6 years old....RIP
Sep 16th, 2009, 08:36 AM
Ghost is one of my fave movies of all time! This is depressing.

I watched the Barbara Walters interview last night. Patrick fought to the very end. Besides his two big movies, I really liked him in "Keeping Mum":
