Veteran actor Pete Postlethwaite, who was diagnosed with testicular cancer in 1990, passed away yesterday afternoon. He was 64.
The movie star will likely be best remembered for his role of Kobayashi in The Usual Suspects. Most recently, he played key parts in such hits as Inception and The Town.
Postlethwaite was nominated for an Oscar in 1993 and was once described by Steven Spielberg as "the best actor in the world."
Our thoughts go out to Postlethwaite's wife, Jackie, and their two children: William, 21, and Lily, 14.
