Actor Bill Paxton Dead At 61 Years Old

Storm-spotters across the country pulled a pretty sweet Global Positioning System stunt to pay tribute to Bill Paxton, star of the storm-chasing thriller "Twister", who passed away on Saturday due to complications from surgery.

Luckily, Paxton had finished filming his role for the entire first season of Training Day before he unexpectedly died at age 61 from complications from surgery. Paxton also was a space marine in Cameron's "Aliens" (1986) who memorably yelps, "Game over, man!" when threatened by the title creatures.

Paxton's recent TV gig in Training Day was completed prior to his passing, and there are at present plans to honor him on the next new episode of the show airing on Thursday night.

Paxton, who appeared in more than 90 films or television shows over four decades, had recently starred in the HBO television series "Big Love" about a polygamous Mormon family, and acted alongside Tom Cruise in the 2014 film "Edge of Tomorrow".

In a February interview on NBC's "Last Call with Carson Daly", Paxton looked back on his career and called himself a "working actor". "I've never had that one movie that really put it all together for me and really gave me a run on sugar", Paxton said. "They used to have a slogan, Avis Car Rental: 'We try harder'". "We ask to please respect the family's wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their adored husband and father".
