Patrick Swayze, famous actor and star of the films Dirty Dancing, Ghost and Roadhouse has lost his battle with cancer at the age of 57. He had battled for two years with the pancreatic cancer and even started acting in a new TV show called "The Beast."
Swayze's biography and filmography from wikipedia can be found here.
Patrick was probably most well known for his award winning performances in Dirty Dancing
but I will always remember him as Dalton from Roadhouse
and as the good looking Chippendales dancer who played opposite Chris Farley's Barney character.
Also, who can forget his bank robbing zen surfer from Point Break, Bodhi?
Memorable lines of Swayze's
"Pain don't hurt much." Roadhouse
"On pure moves alone you beat me any day." SNL Chippendales sketch
"Little hand says it's time to Rock n Roll!." Point Break
His movies live on.
