‘Tombstone,’ ‘Guyana Tragedy’ actor Powers Boothe dies at 68


Powers Boothe had a screen presence that lived up to his name.

The actor, who died Sunday at the age of 68, had an intensity onscreen that made you want to back up a few steps. His matinee idol good looks were subsumed by this force of will, which often led the actor to be cast as heavies, villains, madmen – and politicians.

“The heavies are more fun,” the actor told American Profile magazine in 2014. “And I think they’re more interesting.”
