No mention of Tombstone?


Tombstone is beast. Just saying when people talk about the icons of action flick, it usually begins and ends with those 3 franchises. But yeah, the rest of his body of work was awesome. Tombstone, Twister, Apollo 13, True Lies etc. Pretty much any of these movies I'll stop and watch if I'm channel surfing.

Very shocking and sad news, I just watched his new/current show Training Day yesterday and really enjoyed this show.

My favorite role of him was in True Lies, he was awesome it that!

People don't typically die during surgery, and I would expect some lawsuits to follow...


It was heart surgery so it wasn't any routine surgery.

Agree on Bill. He was great in 2 Guns even with Denzel and Walberg.

But if you have not seen him and Billy Bob in Sam Raimi's A Simple Plan. See it please. Beautiful movie in developing the story, how the characters change over time, and the scenery. Wonderful and tense stuff.

Great body of work but I'll always remember him for his not so prestigious role as Chet from Weird Science...

Damn!

One of those characters (from my childhood) you just never forget.


RIP

Fantastic actor. His performance on Apollo 13 is one of my faves. Always brought personality and color to whatever role he was cast in. For some reason whenever I think of him, I think of Arnie elbowing him in the face in 'True lies'. Another underrated comedic performance. Sad loss man, RIP

I did a search and found an interview with Bill talking about how his son appears in Episode 8. But I don't have any idea of how many shows are in process...

I'm thinking if he elected to have some sort of heart surgery it would have been after the shooting of season one concluded (otherwise we would have probably heard he had emergency surgery).

CSI's and Law & Order's shuffled people in and out and Spartacus replaced their main start for 3 more seasons after Andy's death, so there is a slight chance that the Training Day producers will take a look at the ratings and if positive may seek out some seasoned actor to step into the role...

He's was like Morgan Freeman. You could just sit and listen to him talk all day. When I think about Titanic, it's just snippets of him talking that come to mind despite all of the other iconic fluffery. Today is a sad day.

The car dealer guy in True lies :

He was great in that role.

There was a scene at the end of the movie when Jamie Lee put the lipstick tube in his ribs like it was a gun, he urinated on himself. I've since seen the movie and they don't show the urination running off his shoe, just him running off. Is there a reason?

Forgot to post that "True Lies" was on one of my cable channels late last night. Bill Paxton was just so damn good in this. Some of the lines I remember...

"Let's face it, Harry. The 'Vette gets em..."

"I have to remind myself of the fear you must be feeling. You see, for me, fear is not an option."

"I'm not a spy. I'm nothing! I'm navel lint!"

"I have to lie to women to get laid. And I don't score much...I got a little (bleep), it's pathetic!"

"Would a spy pee himself?"


Honestly, it was Best Supporting Actor-worthy. If Marisa Tomei could win an Oscar for "My Cousin Vinny" for a great comedic turn, I see no idea why a performance like this couldn't have been acknowledged. Maybe I'm a little biased, but this dude just stole every scene he was in. Kind of like Alan Rickman, another one of my favorites.

Bill Paxton's family files wrongful death suit against hospital, surgeon



The late actor Bill Paxton's family has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles and the surgeon who operated on Paxton, who died Feb. 25, 2017, at age 61.

According to a news release, Paxton's family contends that the surgeon, Ali Khoynezhad, performed an improper procedure that led to the death of the actor, whose cause of death was listed as a stroke, suffered 11 days after he underwent heart surgery.

The family contends that Khoynezhad's actions, and the inactions of Cedars-Sinai, caused Paxton to suffer the complications that resulted in his death, according to the release, which cites court documents.

Khoynezhad left his position as a surgeon at Cedars-Sinai shortly after Paxton's death, according to the release. "We are pursuing accountability and justice from a physician and a hospital that failed to adequately protect Mr. Paxton," attorney Steve Heimberg says in the release.

The complaint alleges that Paxton consulted Khoynezhad, Cedars-Sinai and other defendants in connection with cardiac conditions that included bicuspid aortic valve and aortic aneurysm. The document says Khoynezhad and others recommended that Paxton undergo surgery for aortic aneurysm.

"Based upon information and belief, heart surgery was not indicated," the complaint says.

Paxton underwent surgery on Feb. 14, 2017. "Defendants ... misrepresented and/or concealed information relating to the risks of surgery and care that would be provided and/or failed to adequately explain the proposed treatment or procedure and/or failed to disclose that (Khoynezhad) was going to use a high risk and unconventional surgical approach with which he lacked experience and which was, based upon information and belief, beyond the scope of his privileges," the suit says.

The document says that Paxton suffered multiple complications and that Khoynezhad was not in the operating room ("and based upon information and belief, not in the hospital") when the actor began suffering the complications.

The suit alleges that the surgeon left "without arranging for continuous care and coverage ... and failed to timer return to the operating room upon notification of the complications, causing a delay in treatment resulting in damage. "

Damn.

These things are usually very difficult to win in court. Although there was malpractice in Joan Rivers' death, and her family won a huge settlement from the outpatient clinic that screwed up.

Bill Paxton's Surgeon and Hospital Deny Responsibility for His Death

The surgeon and hospital Bill Paxton’s family are suing for wrongful death are denying responsibility, claiming that the actor knew his surgery would be risky.

The Big Love star’s family and estate have accused surgeon Ali Khoynezhad and the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center of providing the actor with “negligent diagnosis, management, and treatment,” which they say led to the complications that resulted in the actor’s death last Feb. 25. He was 61.

But in an answer to the wrongful death complaint filed Thursday and obtained by The Blast, Dr. Khoynezhad and Cedars-Sinai Medical Center argued, “At all times … [Paxton and his estate] were aware of certain dangers and risks involved in the examination, diagnosis, operations surgery and medical care rendered to [Paxton].”

Furthermore, they claim Paxton and his estate were aware that the actor had “an existing condition” that made the operation more dangerous.

In their wrongful death complaint, Paxton’s estate made several allegations, all of which the surgeon and hospital denied in the answer they filled to the court. The estate claimed that Cedars-Sinai “misrepresented and/or concealed information relating to the risks of surgery and care that would be provided and/or failed to adequately explain the proposed treatment or procedure.”


The family also claimed that the hospital “failed to disclose that [Dr. Khoynezhad] was going to use a high risk and unconventional surgical approach with which he lacked experience and which was, based upon information and belief, beyond the scope of his privileges.”

In addition, they alleged that Dr. Khoynezhad was “not in the hospital” when Paxton “began suffering the complications” and failed to arrange for “continuous care and coverage” for the actor while he was away. This, the lawsuit alleged, caused “a delay in treatment resulting in damage.”

As a result of the hospital and surgeon’s alleged negligence, Paxton had to undergo a series of procedures that ultimately led to his death ten days later, according to the documents.

“Bill Paxton and his family trusted the physicians and staff at this medical facility but instead Cedars-Sinai betrayed their trust,” said the family’s attorney Bruce Broillet in a statement. “The surgeon’s actions resulted in this tragic and preventable death.”

According to the statement, Dr. Khoynezhad left his position as a surgeon at Cedars-Sinai shortly after Paxton’s death. “We are pursuing accountability and justice from a physician and a hospital that failed to adequately protect Mr. Paxton,” said another attorney for the plaintiffs, Steve Heimberg.

Cedars-Sinai previously issued a statement regarding the lawsuit to PEOPLE: “State and federal privacy laws prevent us from commenting about patient care without written authorization.”

“But we can share the following: Nothing is more important to Cedars-Sinai than the health and safety of our patients,” the statement continued. “These remain our top priorities. One of the reasons for our high quality is that we thoroughly review concerns about any patient’s medical care. This process ensures that we can continue to provide the highest quality care.”

Paxton died of a stroke last year after complications arose during heart surgery to replace a valve and correct an aortic aneurysm. According to the death certificate, the actor had surgery on Feb. 14 and died 11 days later, on the 25th, after suffering a stroke.

“It is with heavy hearts we share the news that Bill Paxton has passed away due to complications from surgery,” a family representative said in a statement at the time. “A loving husband and father, Bill began his career in Hollywood working on films in the art department and went on to have an illustrious career spanning four decades as a beloved and prolific actor and filmmaker. Bill’s passion for the arts was felt by all who knew him, and his warmth and tireless energy were undeniable. We ask to please respect the family’s wish for privacy as they mourn the loss of their adored husband and father.”

Paxton had a lengthy career in Hollywood and was beloved for his roles in the films Terminator (1984), Aliens (1986), Tombstone (1993), Apollo 13 (1995), Twister (1996) and Titanic (1997) — and in 2012, the former star of HBO’s Big Love won an Emmy for his work in the TV mini-series Hatfields and McCoys.

The actor is survived by his two children, James and Lydia, and his wife of 30 years, Louise Paxton.
