'Deadwood,' 'Sin City' Star Powers Boothe Dies

Lamar Ellis | 16 May, 2017, 07:20

Boothe grew up on a cotton farm in west Texas. Boothe's reps are also encouraging anyone moved by the star's life and work to donate to the Gary Sinise Foundation, which honors veterans, first-responders, and their families. While Boothe always seemed to play a sinister character, in real life he was known to be an incredible husband, friend, father, and actor. "The rich - like Al Swearengen (Ian McShane) and Cy Tolliver (Powers Boothe) - buy death, loyalty, and sex". According to his publicist, a private service will be held in his home state of Texas.

Boothe is one of the most prolific actors out there of the past several decades, and he is an Emmy victor to boot thanks to the miniseries Guyana Tragedy: The Story of Jim Jones in the Lead Actor category.

Powers made a name for himself back in 1980, after he landed the role of Jim Jones in Guyana Tragedy: The Story Of Jim Jones. Boothe played White House Chief of Staff Alexander Haig in Oliver Stone's bio-pic 'Nixon', a corrupt Senator in 'Sin City', a morally ambiguous Vice President (later President) in Season 6 of "24".

Mind you he made his NY theater debut at age 26 in a Lincoln Center staging of "Richard III" and, in 1979, made his Broadway debut in the starring role of James McLure's one-act "Lone Star". "A dear friend, great actor, devoted father & husband", he wrote. He later starred in The Avengers as Gideon Malick in 2012, before landing a regular role as the character in Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. from 2015-16. Boothe received his Emmy during the Screen Actors Guild strike, and was one of the few to accept his award in person. Working closely with the cast of Nashville by playing the viciously manipulative father of Rayna Jaymes (Connie Britton), Boothe was well respected in the entertainment industry by those he met.

Boothe married his wife Pam in 1969.

Boothe also co-starred with Lea Thompson in the popular 1984 war film Red Dawn.
