Geoffrey Lewis, veteran actor and father of actress Juliette Lewis and nine other children, passed away on April 7. At 79, Lewis has an impressive roster of movies to his credit, from early outings with Clint Eastwood for classics such as High Plains Drifter and Every Which Way But Loose to TV work for Murder, She Wrote and Hawaii Five-O.
More recently, Lewis attained popularity in horror flicks like Salem's Lot and The Devil's Rejects. The news of his death will be a blow for director Rob Zombie after House of 1000 Corpses actor Tom Towles passed away only two days previously on April 5.

RIP to a screen legend, Mr. Geoffrey Lewis.
