Sam Bottoms, rest in peace
Corporal Lance Johnson will either fight or surf in Heaven, as actor Sam Bottoms dies of brain cancer at an all-too-young 53 years of age. Aside from his memorable role going up river in Apocalypse Now, he also had significant roles in The Last Picture Show and The Outlaw Josey Wales. Coppola, Bogdanovich and Eastwood. Not a bad roster of seventies classics at all.
