Wow. Chris Penn really wasn't that old. Heard this on the radio as I came in to work today.
Though the BBC can't work out how old he was (this story currently says 40; the radio reported it as 43).
We rewatched True Romance recently, and Mulholland Falls is another favourite film of ours: beyond his most well-known performance in Resevoir Dogs, he was still a fine actor in these genre pictures (not a field to be underestimated).
