I loved him in that movie. He was also really good in True Romance.

My condolences to the Penn Family.

I don't. To say such a thing in the face of another person's death is immature and disrespectful. Let the lefties act like 12 year olds. We are mature adults here, I hope.

I think he had a hit single too, about 15 years ago. "NO Myth" was the name of the song if I remember correctly.

It will not surprise me at all to find out he had a heart attack. Chris Penn had gained a huge amount of weight the last few years and has looked quite poor the last year or so.

MY condolences to the Penn family. He was the talented one.

Seems to me it is the last used up resort when a poster has nothing better to say.

I think it's old and stupid.

And Chris Penn was great in most of the roles I saw him in. Sad.

Shows what happens when the mods get itchy fingers. A thread about this gets moved to chat. A second thread gets yanked. Now this thread. Bet it won't be the last either - particularly if it is moved out of the news area again.

just looking at the changes in his face, i would say he was doing more than just gaining weight...his nose looks way different too.

Hi Sam,

You are thinking of Michael Penn. The song "No Myth" (also known as Romeo in Black Jeans) was one of his hits.

I had the album a few years back, and it was excellent. He really is a talented musician.

My condolences to the Penn family.

I remember him looking like this. I guess it was a long time ago.

How very sad to end up dead and alone in your apartment for two days. He was too young.

Being as fat as he was, he probably died from a heart attack. Like John Candy, a fat person can only last just so long.

I wouldn't wish death on anyone loser. I am above acting like a stupid liberal idiot. Note I said like one, I didn't say you are. But quack like a duck and I just might call you a duck.

Besides Sean, Chris and Michael, their father Leo was also famous in Hollywood. He directed for some enjoyable family shows such as Little House and Diagnosis Murder, but I understand that he was a radical leftist/communist. That would make the Penn brothers red-diaper babies, which makes it kind of inevitable that Sean would turn out the way he did. Not saying it makes me like or feel sorry for him for having such views, but he was born to it.

Never knew anything political about Chris, and enjoyed him in the few movies I saw him in.

I found it on the Red Sox message board on MLB.com, while I was bouncing back and forth between there and FR. I opened up another window, Typed in Christopher Penn, and a 1/12/06 thread on Sean was the only thing that came up as #1, so I quickly posted it.

I've been on FR a while, aned learned to make sure that I use the search feature before I post, so I don't get a dozen or so replies with the duplicate posts listed.

It appears sometimes that posting a duplicate thread rates right up there with murdering one's parents.....

I was gonna' write, booze and drugs...someone else beat me to it, not that I was racing, mind you.

Yes, in this case, I would certainly anticipate those as causes before much of anything else. Alcohol has a way of piling on the poundage, and a lot of people resort to cocaine to try to lose them, then get hooked on the "I can still drink" myth ("as long as I can use coke!") myth.

I agree. I don't understand why some idiots on both sides of the political spectrum have to fault someone else for their ideology. I don't agree with the liberals, but I am not going to wish death or celebrate any one of theirs. It is debased and immoral, immature and idiotic. Those who do so bring themselves down to a lower level.

Hate to break it to you, but thin people only last so long, too.
