R.I.P. Paul Newman

Bummer. The legendary actor Paul Newman died Friday at his home in Connecticut. In addition to starring in such classic films as Cool Hand Luke, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, The Sting, and Slap Shot, Newman was also an entrepreneur who founded the Newman's Own line of organic foods in which he donated all proceeds to educational and charitable causes. As a former chain smoker, Newman ultimately died of lung cancer at the age of 83. He was a great actor and an undeniably cool guy. He will be missed.

The clip above (via BlogFoot) is a scene from Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

All the way to the end he "played a real cool hand." That movie changed my life.

What the fuck is Penny doing in this clip?
