Cool Hand Luke Dies at 83

This year has been a bad one for the acting community, as Heath Ledger, Bernie Mac, and Isaac Hayes are just a few of those that we've lost. Unfortunately, one more was added to that list today in Paul Newman. He was 83 years old. Newman lost a battle with lung cancer that he ironically picked up from his general badass roles, including the above mentioned "Cool Hand" Luke in the film of the same name as well as Butch Cassidy in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Comic book fans may have recognized him in 2002's Road to Perdition based on the graphic novel of the same name by Max Allan Collins as John Rooney, an Irish crime boss. Omnicomic sends its condolences to the Newman family. The world has lost a truly great man today.
