R.I.P. Rutger Hauer (1944-2019)



The prolific Dutch actor, who spent much of his career typecast as a villain, has passed away at age 75. His greatest legacy remains his work in the 1982 sci-fi classic Blade Runner, where he not only acted the hell out of his part, but personally rewrote his character's iconic final speech to make it really sing (to the point that it even has its own Wikipedia entry.




Though unlike Roy Batty, there is plentiful evidence that Hauer's life and work will not be forgotten.
