    Geoffrey Lewis dies aged 79


    Provided by NewsCred

    Geoffrey Lewis has died aged 79.

    The San Diego-born actor - who is the father of 'Natural Born Killers' actress Juliette Lewis - appeared in several Clint Eastwood films during his career, and featured in numerous TV shows from the 1960s until the late 1980s.


    According to Variety, a family friend confirmed the actor passed away of natural causes on Tuesday (07.04.15) in Woodland Hills, California.
    The star racked up over 200 acting credits during his career, after rising to prominence in the Clint Eastwood movies 'High Plains Drifter', 'Thunderbolt and Lightfoot', 'Every Which Way But Loose', 'Any Which Way You Can' and 'Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil'.


    Other films in which he starred included 'The Devil's Rejects', 'Heaven's Gate' and 'Dillinger', while his TV work was also acclaimed, featuring in 'Barnaby Jones', 'Hawaii Five-O', 'Little House on the Prairie' and 'Murder She Wrote', and receiving a Golden Globe nomination for his role in the 1980 series, 'Flo'.


    Most recently, Geoffrey had been shooting sport drama 'High and Outside', although it is not now known what will happen to the production.
    He is survived by his second wife Paula Hochhalter and his ten children, including Juliette as well as Lightfield, Matthew and Dierdre, who have also embarked on careers in acting.

    Saw this guy in lots of stuff, never knew his name, and had no idea he was Juliette's dad. RIP to a great character actor.

    Geoffrey always reminded me of the late great George Carlin (in looks).

    Goeffrey was such a talented actor and seems like such a sweet, cool dude.

    RIP Mr Lewis, and my thoughts are with his family and friends.

    Holy smokes, the guy had 10 children? Wow. I remember him being a bad guy in almost everything he did until "Every Which Way But Loose".

    Didn't know the name, do know the face. Saw him in tons of things, big screen and small screen. R.I.P.
    And yeah, had no idea he was Juliette Lewis' father and that he had 10 kids, sheesh.

    I hated him for years after he played the Klansman who shot Bernie Casey in Roots: The Next Generation. I didn't know Juliette was his daughter either.

    Apparently, EVERYBODY was his daughter. Can you imagine all the barley formula consumed?

    Same here. I always called him "Not Tim Conway". (I do that with lots of character actors - there are "Not Fred Savage" and "Not Kevin Spacey" too that I'll probably never know the name of either.)

    Always enjoyed seeing him on the screen.

    I too remember this guy well, wonderful character actor. I never could make up my mind about his looks, is he handsome or just ordinary looking. He was in so many things and yet his name doesn't ring a bell at all. Wow this is Juliette's Dad.
