The UFC bantamweight champ is expected to take on the role originally played by Patrick Swayze.
Think about the fortuneteller in popular culture -- the bandaged, bejeweled gypsy kind. Has there ever been an honest one? The only one I can remember is Whoopi Goldberg in "Ghost," but that wasn't until Patrick Swayze got into her and swayzed* her up and made her make out with Demi Moore.
Goodbye, Patrick. Thank you for always staying down to Earth, even when Hollywood tried to cast you out among the stars.
A friend mentioned that September 14 marked five years since actor/dancer Patrick Swayze died, after a very public battle with cancer. After logging over 500 interviews during a fifteen year period, I can say without reservation that Patrick Swayze was the nicest person I ever sat down with.
Swayze was, perhaps, one of the last tough guy dancers who could reveal his significant talent without worrying about being feminized by it.
One of motion pictures greatest actors, an icon of film noir and an intelligent, decent man in real life has left us.
