The great character actor Powers Boothe has died aged 68. I thought he was an awful lot older – partly because he’s been in my life so long and mainly on TV, starting with his truly brilliant impersonation of madman Jim Jones and then the Philip Marlowe series. Only a few film directors truly grasped his potential so it was on the small screen where his work could expand and be properly appreciated. This talented Texan was a joy to watch. Vaya con Dios.
