Patrick Swayze Dead at 57

Actor Patrick Swayze is dead at age 57 after a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer. Swayze rose to fame in 1987 when he starred opposite Jennifer Grey in Dirty Dancing, a film that displayed his talent and formal training in dance. He also starred in 1990's Ghost, a from-the grave love story with Demi Moore. That same year, Swayze hosted a memorable episode of Saturday Night Live, during which he performed the Chippendales skit with Chris Farley.

Later in his career, Swayze had small roles in films like Tall Tale and Donnie Darko before making the switch to television. His A&E; show, The Beast, was cancelled in June after one season. The network denied Swayze's illness as the cause.

The Beast was a great TV show. Im glad the producers had the courage to make the show knowing of Patrick's condition. It was imho his best work. Knowing the pain he was going through proves that he was a true professional, and a real tough guy. Also Ghost may be perhaps the best date movie ever. R.I.P Patrick many tears will be shed on your passing, you will be missed.

He was a great man. Despite his illness, he made one last effort to fight his way through, by working in a the Tv series :- ' The Beast ' , but his health continued on deteriorating and they had to cancel the series...... His performance in his last role was commendable, i think it's his greatest performance to date, he will be sorely missed!

It's so sad. I first saw him in North and South which I loved and I was so in love with him in Dirty Dancing. I must have seen that film like a 100 times and I remember dancing every song when I was a kid. Rest in peace Patrick. You won't be forgotten.
