Wow this is a very tough one for me as for many people I have seen, Mr. Hauer was a fan favorite. He wasn’t considered an elite actor to most or that so-called A-list but… to me he was. The man, the myth, the legend a phrase I reserve for two actors Lance Henriksen and Rutger Hauer deservingly so. For Rutger Hauer he was A-list or elite because he made me watch non-horror flicks, dramas, etc., for the love Rutger Hauer! That man could act. Rutger Hauer had that quality that twinkle in his eye when he came on screen you knew you were in for a treat. His acting to me seemed like a Vincent Price sort where it maybe him actually acting or just a part of his personality that comes out naturally. A person when on screen that seems like they are having more fun than most doing it. Whether it was “Nighthawks” or “Blade Runner” or maybe a “Blind Fury” or even “Split Second” when a person seen those films whether they liked them or not knew Rutger Hauer! For me his presence on screen meant something and giving that movie instant credibility. This man made me enjoy cinema so much more and it is ashame he had to leave like most too early. But something tells me or at least in my twisted Rutger Hauer filled mind God must have put a rush on that “Split Second 2” script! To you Mr. Rutger Hauer I thank you for being one of the most amazing actors in my mind because I believe your talent was one of a billion that help shape my cinema experiences. I shed a tear and raise a beer to you wishing I had the chance to meet you but hope I will never forget the memory of you shoving a grenade into Gene Simmons’ mouth in “Wanted: Dead or Alive”. For that sir I thank you R.I.P. Rutger Hauer.
