RIP William Hurt

Aside from some occasional music posts I do not typically put up posts on actors. William Hurt shall be the exception. He passed away this past weekend, and while his movie credits are extensive and his awards many I was always fascinated by his involvement with Lawrence Kasdan, the writer/director of The Big Chill and Body Heat. Not everyone agrees but those two films brought William Hurt some of his greatest roles, and brought us some truly outstanding performances. Kasdan wrote some great movies, but Hurt truly was magnificent in both. He had so many other great, and Oscar winning performances, but for today lets look at some of the clips from his partnership with Kasdan. The great score from Body Heat by John Barry should not be forgotten either. RIP William Hurt.
