    Oh my God! How horrible! I've seen so many of his movies! I don't know what else to say. Rest in peace, Mr. Scott. My condolences to his family, friends and fans.

    I didn't realize that he and Ridley Scott were brothers.

    Director Tony Scott Commits Suicide Jumps Off L.A. Bridge

    Breaking News

    Famed director Tony Scott -- who directed "Top Gun" among many other major films -- jumped to his death today off an L.A. bridge ... this according to the L.A. County Coroner.

    According to the Coroner, 68-year-old Scott -- Ridley Scott's brother -- jumped from the Vincent Thomas Bridge spanning San Pedro and Terminal Island around 12:30pm.

    U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Jennifer Osburn said a suicide note was found in Scott's Toyota Prius, which was parked on one of the eastbound lanes of the bridge.

    Scott directed such films as "Top Gun," "Beverly Hills Cop II," "Enemy of the State," and "The Taking of Pelham 123."

    Authorities used sonar equipment to find Scott's body in the port's murky waters. His body was recovered at approximately 4:30pm ... four hours after he jumped.

    His body has since been turned over to coroner officials..

    I wonder if he had cancer or something because his sons aren't that old and now they won't have a father.

    This is so sad. I know Ridley always got more critical praise but Tony's films were always pure entertainment. He made so many films, including my all time favorite True Romance, so I'm grateful for the many years of great entertainment he's provided.

    He probably was going to say something about Tom Cruise, aka GMD, so Scientology drove him to do it. Wow, I should bust out with my tinfoil hat tonight!

    I nearly my eyes when we drive over that bridge--can't imagine purposefully jumping from it.

    I feel for his family.

    i thought the same. there's always suspicion when the words tom cruise/scientology and suicide appear in the same sentence.

    RIP.

    Jumped off? Or pushed off by a member of the CO$?

    Cause what are the chances some gay shit went down on that set? Maybe not actual fucking. But you know Tommy was in hog heaven with all those buff shirtless dudes running around. If anyone would have caught Tom staring at some ass it would be this dude.

    TONY SCOTT
    Jumped to Death
    In Full View of Boaters


    Tony Scott's suicidal jump off an L.A. bridge was witnessed by numerous boaters, including a group of passengers on a harbor cruise ... some of whom took photos and shot video.

    One of the passengers tells TMZ ... "He landed right next to our tour boat, and many of us saw the whole thing."

    The white bar in the bottom right corner of the picture on the right is the rail from the harbor cruise boat.

    As we previously reported, Scott jumped off the Vincent Thomas Bridge around 12:30 PM ... his body was fished out of the water by the L.A. Port Police a short time later. We're told the bridge is roughly 200 feet above the water.

    Officials say Scott left a suicide note, but the details of the letter have not been released.

    Scott was 68 years old.

    RIP, Tony.

    "True Love" was the bomb diggity!!!

    And I fell in love with Susan Sarandon in "The Hunger" (another Tony Scott film that was really atmospheric and fun).
