Friday, March 26, 2010 The Hopper Star

Something was up

It was one of those days in the neighborhood "Dennis Hopper took what may be his final bow Friday as his star was dedicated on Hollywood's Walk of Fame."

It is long way from where he was born, in Dodge City, in Kansas, and a long way from the knife fight with James Dean up at the observatory, in Rebel Without a Cause. And now Dennis Hopper is seventy-three and dying of cancer. So he gets his star on the Walk of Fame:

    "Easy Rider" co-star Jack Nicholson stood behind Hopper as Hollywood star number 2,403 was revealed with Hopper's name in front of the Egyptian Theater. Other stars on hand included director David Lynch and singers Johnny Mathis and Dwight Yoakam.

And Strider was there. You know Aragorn, Viggo Mortensen. He took time off from the movie he's now filming playing Sigmund Freud in "The Talking Cure" and gave the big speech. All in all it was an odd day.
