RIP Bill Paxton: Three Six Fan

Actor Bill Paxton passed away this weekend. A constant presence in film and TV since the the 1980s, Paxton was the only actor in history to have ever been killed by a Terminator, a Predator, and a Xenomorph. The actor died from post-surgical stroke following heart surgery, he was just 61 years old.

Paxton was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, and is perhaps best know for his roles in the filmsTwisterTitanic (James Cameron was a frequent collaborator) and Apollo 13, as well as underrated pics like Weird ScienceOne False Move and Edge of Tomorrow. He also starred in the HBO drama Big Love for five seasons and recently headed the Training Day television adaption on CBS.

Besides this impressive body of work, it may come as a surprise that Paxton not only directed the ultra weird music video for the cult hit “Fish Heads,” but was in fact a big fan of Three Six Mafia. After being introduced to their music by his son James, he went as far as name checking them on national television during a 2009 appearance on The Today Show, where also professed his support of indie hip hop acts People Under the Stairs, Jedi Mind Tricks and Murs.

Juicy J paid his respects to Paxton yesterday in the tweet below.

Yesterday, a statement provided by Paxton’s family read:

“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.”
