CITY SLICKERS actor Bruno Kirby died on Monday (14AUG06) in Los Angeles following a battle with leukaemia. He was 57.
Kirby's wife LYNN SELLERS revealed yesterday (15AUG06) that her late husband died from complications linked to the blood disease, with which he was only recently diagnosed.
She said in a statement: "We are incredibly grateful for the outpouring of support we have received from Bruno's fans and colleagues who have admired and respected his work over the past 30 years.
"Bruno's spirit will continue to live on not only in his rich body of film and television work but also through the lives of individuals he has touched throughout his life."
Kirby starred in a string of hit movies including When Harry Met Sally, Donnie Brasco, This Is Spinal Tap and Good Morning, VIETNAM.

Based on the extremely controversial novel, Sleepers tells what is purported to be a true story of revenge in Hell's Kitchen in New York City. Four early-teenaged friends (played as adults by Patric, Pitt, Ron Eldard, and Billy Crudup -- who I have to mention just because I like to say "Crudup") are sent to a juvenile center when a prank goes wrong and almost kills a bystander. The brutality that occurs in the center does not need to be expounded upon, but suffice it's very horrible, and that guard Sean Nokes (Bacon) is the baddest of the bad guys.

How many more movies do we need about a rough neighborhood full of lifelong friends hopelessly turned to crime or worse?

Five Irish kids in NYC's Hell's Kitchen make an overemotional pact over some stolen rings on an anonymous rooftop. With teary music. And slow motion. In the film's first scene.
