Chris Penn, Dead at 40

Postby Dr. Duran Duran » Wed Jan 25, 2006 11:42 pm

Saw this in the football cafe and thought I'd pass it on. Penn is the brother of Sean Penn. He was found dead in his condo, sources say that no foul play was involved. Penn is probably best known for playing Nice Guy Eddie Cabot in Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs. He was just 40 years old.

Sadly, my first thoughts are him living in the shadow of his brother.

Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

My guess is heart attack. He wasn't exactly a slim figure in recent years. Just watch Starsky & Hutch (He played Manetti).

Reservoir Dogs is nice, but I'll always remember Chris Penn most for his performance in Best of the Best, a movie which featured Eric Roberts, another actor living in a sibling's shadow. ;-D

i was going to mention best of the best, where he played travis brickley and used the best pickup line i have heard in a movie--

standing outside the women's restroom in a bar--

"hey, you going number one or number two?"

brickley had lots of class.

chris penn is perhaps less famous than sean but i always enjoyed his performances more. never really cared for sean penn.

btw, reports say he weighed close to 270 pounds. anyway, i would think drug overdose is probably considered 'natural causes' in california?
