Patrick Swayze Passes Away at 57

After a long public battle with cancer, actor Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with his family at his side.

Swayze had a long and memorable career in such films as Ghost, The Outsiders, Red Dawn, Point Break, To Wong Fu, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar and Road House, but will probably be most remembered as playing opposite Jennifer Grey in Dirty Dancing.

He had most recently completed the first season of “The Beast,” a TV series for A&E. Swayze was also an accomplished dancer and singer – both talents were also highlighted in the aforementioned Dirty Dancing. He was 57 and will be missed.
