R.I.P. Actor/Writer Peter Fonda

Peter Fonda, Star of ‘Easy Rider,’ Dies at 79

Two-time Oscar nominee Peter Fonda, who became a counterculture icon when he co-wrote, produced and starred in seminal 1969 road movie “Easy Rider,” then showed Hollywood he could act about three decades earlier in “Ulee’s Gold,” died on Friday from lung cancer at his home in Los Angeles. He was 79.

He was a very underrated actor who should have had many more — and bigger — roles.

He captured the desperation of Ayn Rand’s emasculated husband brilliantly.

Logic is for Machines

Rest in peace.
