I think most of those highlights are from the wrong movie. Paxton played Morgan in the movie Tombstone, not in the movie Wyatt Earp.

He was on my short list of favorite actors. I know he was no De Niro, I just liked him and the way he acted. The first thing I think of when I think about the movie "Aliens" is "GAME OVER, MAN! GAME OVER!". Loved him in Twister too. And as the asshole Chet in Weird Science. The idiot scumbag in True Lies. And so many other memorable movie roles. And all his TV acting like in that Hatfield/McCoy's mini series. He will be missed. Maybe a bit more by me than most... RIP Bill
