    I didn't see a thread anywhere about it, so i thought there should be one.

    Blade Runner is one of my favourite films, and his genius in both the writing and performing his Tears In The Rain speech was the first time a film ever made me cry.

    The Hitcher was freaking great.

    Really was just a great actor.

    That's sad. We're all getting older...

    I loved his "Blind Fury" movie as a teenager.

    He always put in a great performance even in some of the cheaper films he did but it really bugs me that Chris Nolan didn't bring his character from Batman Begins back for Dark Knight Rises as it would have fit perfectly within the themes of that movie.
    If I may recommend a film of his I'd pick Nighthawks it's quite an obscure thriller/action flick where he plays an international terrorist on the run from Sylvester Stallone and Billy Dee Williams in some ways it's quite a modern film and I'm surprised no ones tried to remake it.

    I'm not gay by any means but I just watched Blade Runner for the first time and was really blown away by how perfect he looked. Like his eyes, hair, build, voice, emotion. I only really remembered him from movies when he was older.

    Huge +1. Love that movie. Easily one of Sylvester Stallone's hidden gem movies.
