Let's hear it for the boy

Hearing about Chris Penn's death this morning made me more than just a little sad. Cheesy as it was, who doesn't remember Chris as Willard Hewitt in Footloose? One of the most memorable scenes in the film has to he the Chris Penn/Kevin Bacon dance sequence. And, really, doesn't a smile always accompany that memory?

RIP Chris.

They were talking about him on the Lex and Terry show this morning (not sure if you get that in Va Beach) but they said he was a real dick.
They said out of every celebrity they have ever had on the show he was the #1 jerkiest of all time.

Then a couple of people called in to say the same thing in their encounters with him.

Is it Sean Penn's brother? Looks like it could be. So sad. I hadn't heard it and don't really know who he is. But I feel for Sean if it is his brother.

Those Penn boys...that is so sad. That was a totally great scene, classic.

I can't remember if it's Sean's brother or cousin but I have heard he wasn't very nice.

Just the same I loved that scene and movie too and will always remember him for that. It was one of the best!

I personally liked him in Rush Hour, when Chris Tucker told him it would take all day to kiss his fat ass.

We discussed it before and I will ask again...

01. Will Madonna attend the funeral since she was married to Sean?

02. If she does attend the funeral, whill she try to convince the Penn's to make it a Kabalah service?

03. If they agree and make it a Kabalah service, will Ashton, Demi and Brittney attend?

I immediately thought of the dance scene. Too bad, really. Those Penn boys are FUBAR.

I heard on the radio that Sean Penn's brother had died, but I couldn't place him.

My favorite part of that scene is the fact that he has on those cowboy boots. Priceless!

Yeah, this sucked. He's way too young.
