Rip Torn

I can't even express how sad this makes me.  Rip Torn was arrested again, this time for breaking into a bank while armed.  He was so drunk, he thought it was his house.

Torn is a brilliant and fiercely independent talent.  Sadly, he will probably be remembered most for Dodgeball or Men in Black.  There's a decent profile of him here in the NY Times magazine.

Torn, Nicholas Ray and Marilyn Chambers
