What an American Icon this guy is and was. I think he was one of the best!

JBellaSep 9, 2011

Son in law. Son in law, not son. Sorry about that. He was married to Brooke Hayward.

JBellaSep 9, 2011

He was truly a marrying man. Had no idea his dad was the great Leland Hayward. Impressive pedigree.

Mr Hopper you will be missed. I still remember (and always will...) Mr Hopper as Billy in Easy Rider (R.I.P Brother)

S.B.May 30, 2010

My thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. Hopper`s family. What a sad day for Hollywood. A good actor is gone and no one will be able to replace him. Rest in peace.
