Powers Boothe, the character actor known for his delightfully villainous performances in shows ranging from Deadwood all the way to Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., has died at the age of 68, according to the Hollywood Reporter. He died in his sleep of natural causes on Sunday morning, his representatives told the paper. The news was first broken by his friend, actor Beau Bridges:

I've been a fan of this guy since the beginning. He's up there with Jack Palance as one of the all time
great screen heavies.

RIP.

I've always liked the actor, but one thing I've always wanted to say: how cool is it that his first name was Powers?

Great body of work but his character in Deadwood was stand out to me.
