R.I.P. Patrick Swayze – 1947 – 2009

Even though I’m in the middle of my TIFF coverage, it wouldn’t be respectful not to mention that Patrick Swayze succumbed yesterday to his battle with pancreatic cancer and died at the age of 57.

Swayze is, of course, best known for his roles in the films Dirty Dancing and Ghost. I personally quite enjoyed his role as a motivational speaker with a dark secret in Donnie Darko.

He will be missed.
