    Statement by the Family of Charlton Heston: Financial News - Yahoo! Finance

    i have no real thoughts about the guy, other than being a crazy guy who hated ape-people and loved his guns, but he´s dead nonetheless.

    i think it´s weird to be living in the days where all the people that have been legends throughout my life are starting to die. James Brown and all of those guys, ya know...

    :agreed:

    I grew up watching all his kick ass movies: Ben Hurr, Ten Commandments, Planet of the Apes, Soylent Green, and so on.

    It made me really sad to see he died. Him and Clint Eastwood were those two badass actors from the 50s, 60s, and 70s.

    At least he lived a long great life.

    People think of Heston as a right-wing nut job, but they do forget that he was one of the most outspoken supporters of Dr. King during the Civil Rights struggles.

    :( RIP

    Heston was all good. He had a real presence on the scren like Eastwood or Gregory Peck that you just don't seen to see out of modern actors.

    I can't say I liked a lot of the stuff Chuck stood for in recent years, but he was a kickass actor and an all around badass. RIP Chuck. :noway:
