Such a shame. How do we know so much about addiction and still can't save people from themselves?

It's a genuine loss, rather than mere tabloid fodder.

I am in shock. He was so amazing as an actor, and so talented. I really had no idea he was an addict though that part isn't surprising - it's Hollywood. I loved him in so many roles, and he will always be Lester Bangs to me, though the first movie I saw him in was The Talented Mr Ripley - everyone in that movie is on my favourites list. I really loved his character in it, though.

I knew he had been in rehab last year. It's really a testament to just how cunning, baffling and powerful addiction really is. This wasn't a kid or even someone in the 27 club. This was a "grown-up" who'd been around the block and probably had a good idea what would happen if he started using again. And still...

It really is. Addiction is a strange and scary thing, I've always felt.

I honestly wondered - before I found out about the addiction - knowing he was a big guy, if it could be heart/weight related. It's kind of insidious that that was my first thought, too.

It's not that long since James Gandolfini went, although clearly that was a more extreme example.

That's true, and it was more extreme, but I do imagine that was a little related in some way.
