Acting legend Paul Newman has died at the age of 83 after a battle with cancer.
Newman is the star of my two favorite movies, The Hustler (1961) and The Color of Money (1986). In both films he played the role of pool hustler “Fast Eddie” Felson, at two different points in his life.
The man was smart, handsome, and philanthropic… one of Hollywood’s true class acts.
I’ll have to find a lesbian bar tonight and play a couple of racks in honor of Fast Eddie.
