Patrick Swayze (1952-2009)

Patrick Swayze (1952-2009)

(On having terminal cancer) “I've had more lifetimes than any 10 people put together, and it's been an amazing ride...So this (dying) is O.K.”

I watched a couple of documentaries about Patrick Swayze recently and by all accounts he was a truly good soul (albeit with a few personal demons).


Swayze was approached to play the lead role in Predator 2 (1990) but couldn’t due to scheduling conflicts. He was also originally cast as Gabriel Cash in Tango and Cash (1989) but pulled out to do Road House (1989). The role then went to Kurt Russell. Both are brilliant movies in my opinion!

True legend! 🙌
