Actor Powers Boothe died in his sleep on May 14 (Sunday night/Monday morning). He was known for his roles in "Sin City", "The Avengers" and also the TV series called "Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D".

Born to a sharecropping family in a small town in Texas, Boothe was introduced to acting while performing in summer stock during his junior year at Texas State University. Those wishing to honor Bothe's legacy are encouraged to donate to the Gary Sinise Foundation, which helps the country's defenders, veterans, and first responders and their families.

My favorite early performances by Powers Boothe include his supporting work as FBI Agent Wesley Doyle in the chilling 2001 film "Frailty", and of course as Bad Guy "Curly Bill" Brocius in the never-grows-old 1993 western "Tombstone".

After picking it up, Boothe said: "This is either the most courageous moment of my careers or the stupidest". Wyatt was the father of lead character Rayna Jaymes and former mayor of Nashville.

"At the end of a Nashville Season One party, when the great Powers Boothe started to sing "Honky Tonk Man" on @theryman Auditorium stage, I grabbed my phone as fast as I could. Rest In Peace, amigo (friend)". Shortly after he began acting, joining the Oregon Shakespeare Festival before hitting the stage in NY in 1974. News of his death first came from Beau Bridges, who eulogized Boothe in a tweet that referred to him as "a dear friend, great actor, devoted father, and husband". Boothe was known for playing bad guys in many films, including "Tombstone", "Sin City" and "The Avengers".
