A Life Not Lost In Time…

Very sorry to see that the great Rutger Hauer has passed. He was one badass mofo on the big screen and in life; and he killed it in Blade Runner, one of the most badassest films ever.

Actually one of the roles of his I liked almost as much as Roy Blatty was his portrayal of the quirky faerie Niall Brigant on HBO’s True Blood. The show itself was pretty goofy but Rutger was brilliant in it.

Dang, it seems like everyone is going to die eventually, doesn’t it…

Anyway, HEAVY.COM has a pretty good write-up about him if you’re looking for one.

  1. Sad to hear, I agree Rutger was genius in Blade Runner and I loved him in Ladyhawke, May he RIP❤️

    1. Need to watch Ladyhawke again. I’ve watched Blade Runner so many times I practically have it memorized; but I’m a little fuzzy re: Ladyhawke it’s been so long.

      1. Ladyhawke is a bit dated, 80s cheesy but I like the fantasy genre and all the actors were great.

  2. Thanks. Rutger Hauer was one of my favourite actors, and Blade Runner one of the reasons I love sci-fi so much. I’d forgotten that final scene. How odd that Hauer died in 2019, the very year in which Blade Runner was set. Vale Rutger Hauer.

    1. Whoa! Spooky cool. I did not even put that connection together about the dates and, quite frankly, I’m a bit embarrassed by it. Thanks for smarting me up.

      1. lol – I can’t take credit for it. I think I read on wiki that the original Blade Runner was set in 2019. I didn’t remember that at all. 🙂

        1. Hey, it’s all you. I consider wikipedia and google as external brain augmentations… kinda like glasses for the mind.

          1. lmao – I’ll remember that. I already have 3 pairs of glasses, what’s one or two more? 🙂

  3. Always remembered him, although I hardly saw any of his movies. Still, he’s etched on my brain for some reason.

    1. He was an all around cool dude who just had that kind of presence…

Say it like you mean it
