Hopper in Waterworld - 1995

(Best Syndication News) Besides his appearance in 161 movies, video games and documentaries, Dennis Hopper is known for his painting, sculpting and photography (see list of films below). He made his first appearance in the 1955 film “Rebel Without A Cause” but may be best known for playing the tough-guy in “Easy Rider” (1969) and the reporter in “Apocalypse Now” (1979).

The 73-year old Hopper was present today at the unveiling of his Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, but he was noticeable thinner and in a wheel chair. In October it was revealed that he was diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. The cancer had metastasized and spread to his bones. Yesterday his attorney said he was dying from the cancer.
