Powers Boothe, a longtime character actor with a deep Texas voice and a talent for playing corrupt authority figures, passed away over the weekend at age 68. He was perhaps best known for playing cult leader Jim Jones in a TV movie "Guyana Tragedy: The Story of Jim Jones," as well as roles in "Deadwood" on HBO and the films Tombstone and Sin City.
KC's View:
It is less well known, but one of my favorite Powers Boothe roles was as the title character in "Philip Marlowe, Private Eye," a stylish 1983-1986 TV series on HBO based on the short stories of Raymond Chandler.
