  1. I was shocked and very saddened to hear this yesterday. I’m very sorry for Chris’ family and friends.

  2. wtf….. He was such a cool actor, in fact just as good as his brother.
    god bless him, if there realy is one!
    i got my doubts.

  3. My thoughts are with the Penn family and Chris’ close friends.
    This is a very tragic loss. He was a great actor and one of my personal favorites.

  4. I was just shocked and stunned when I first heard this. He was actually 43 years old when he died, but whatever his age may be, he was still extremely young to die. They did an autopsy and didn’t find anything out yet, so here is to hoping they do find something out and that his friends and family can make it through this difficult, tragic time.
    RIP Nice Guy Eddie
    You will be missed and share a place in many people’s hearts.

  5. Such a loss..way too young!
    He was so great in Resevoir Dogs. Was hoping to see him in another Tarantino flick.

  6. I just watched Reservoir Dogs again and still can’t believe it… did they say how it happened?

  7. Let me say this out loud, ’cause I wanna get it straight in my head. You’re saying that Mr. Blonde was gonna kill you, then when we got back, he was going kill us, take the satchel of diamonds, and scram. I’m right about that, right? That’s correct? That’s your story?

  8. What a drag. I’ll miss him from Dogs and True Romance and wish he could have appeared in more quality flicks before he passed.

  9. I was very upset when i read about it, i even watched res dogs the same night as a memorial. He was truly a great actor, such a shame cocaine is fucking up everything.

  10. Chris Penn played in my favorite movie of all time RESERVOIR DOGS !!!!!! And he had to die? I think this is totally fucked up! And i hope he rest in piece with the former cast of Reservoir dogs Eddie Bunker and Lawrence Tierney. They will be missed but will never be forgotten.

  11. That is just tragic! Nice Guy Eddie! damn I loved chris penn in Reservoir Dogs. He was way too young to go!

  12. I found out at school, and I had to cry a bit. The really horrible thing was that no one else knew who he was! (In my class.) :(

  13. Chris Penn….
    Inspirational actor…never took the piss..always nailed his character.
    Sadly missed in the film industry..sorely missed on screen to millions..RIP

  14. I just heard.
    I am actually in total shock as to his early death.
    A brilliant actor and someone who could play a role brilliantly like we saw in Resevoir Dogs.
    Will be missed by anyone who likes good real actors.
    My love to him.

  15. I WOULD HAVE CHOSSIN HIM FOR A PART IN ONE OF MY FUTURE MOVIES MABY IN A SOME-SIILAR ROLE, I WAS MAD/SAD WHEN THIS HAPPEND. MAYBE A SUCCESOR OF HIM WILL SHOW HIMSELF IN HOLLYWOOD IN BOUT 10 YRS. FROM NOW

  16. I was both incredibly shocked and saddened when I heard this. Why is it all the good actors from epic movies have to die? Robert Shaw who played Quint in Jaws died like a year after Jaws came out. John Belushi, better known as Joliet Jake Blues of the Blues Brothers, died a few years after The Blues Brothers Movie debuted. Chris Penn was an excellent actor. Nice Guy Eddie is one of my favorite characters in the Tarantino movies. The first glimpse of Reservoir Dogs I ever saw was on the bravo channel, and it was when Nice Guy Eddie shoots the Cop and then gives his long illustrious soliloquy to Mr. Orange. After that I wanted to find out about all of the Tarantino movies. Loss is never a good thing. Chris Penn was a great actor, and for what it’s worth, I know I as well as many others won’t forget him as Nice Guy Eddie.
