The Emmy Award-winning actor had memorable appearances in Deadwood, Marvel's The Avengers, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and others programs. In addition to portraying Jim Jones, he played the title character in "Philip Marlowe, Private Eye" (1983), an HBO drama series based on Raymond Chandler's hard-bitten detective.
The veteran actor was best known for playing snarling villains like Curly Bill Brocious in the 1993 Western Tombstone and saloon owner Cy Tolliver in HBOs Deadwood..
Charles Esten, also known as Deacon Claybourne, dedicated a special Instagram video post to Boothe and gave him the utmost respect for his talent and grace.
Actress Lea Thompson - who Boothe starred alongside in the 1984 war movie Red Dawn - paid tribute to "a great actor". "And I think they're more interesting". "A dear friend, great actor, devoted father and husband", actor Beau Bridges wrote on Twitter.
How much more gratifying it would have been to invite Boothe, an actor with an immediately recognizable voice, to attend a WTWOF ceremony in Lubbock, rather than the current need to consider him as a deceased representative.
Boothe also played White House Chief of Staff Alexander Haig in Oliver Stone's Nixon and Colonel Faith in the comedy MacGruber, directed by the Lonely Island's Jorma Taccone. Preston, 28, is a graduate of the University of California, and Parisse, 34, who also became an actress like her father.
Powers Allen Boothe was born to a farming family in the west Texas town of Snyder on June 1, 1948.
