Brando dies

Screen legend (and former hottie) Marlon Brando has died at the age of 80. Cause of death is "being withheld."

I think the first movie I actually saw him in was Streetcar Named Desire, the summer I was on a Tennessee Williams kick. I had certainly heard of Brando (and heard the many jokes about his troubled life, eccentricity, and weight), but had never seen one of his films. I was shocked at how beautiful he once was.

Wherever he is now, I hope he has peace.
