I've first seen him in "The Outsiders", in one of my English classes, in high school. Then there was "Dirty Dancing", "Road House", "Ghost", "Point Break", "To Wong Foo, Thanks..." and last year "The Beast" (TV show).
In those twenty plus years, I truly enjoyed this man. It wasn't about his looks, even if they didn't hurt. I liked him, I loved the way he moved and last year in "The Beast", even if you could see he was sick, it was nice to see him acting again. Plus, he seemed like a loving man and was with his wife for over 30 years, that is something in Hollywood (and anywhere else for that matter!)
He represented, on screen, what I like in a man: power and grace with a little bit of crazy.
