RIP Powers Boothe

American character actor of the small and big screen Powers Boothe, died Sunday May 14th in Los Angeles. He was 68. His talents weren’t only limited to genre material. He played former mayor Lamar Wyatt on 26 episodes of the country drama “Nashville,” as well as Judge “Wall” Hatflied on the Euro-western TV mini-series “Hatfields & McCoys.” Prior to that, he played saloon owner Cy Tolliver on “Deadwood” and Vice President Daniels on “24”, but Boothe will probably best be remembered as Curly Bill Brocius in the 1993 western “Tombstone” and his memorable line to Kurt Russell’s Wyatt Earp character as they left Tombstone, “Well… bye!”.
