Well, if this isn't a confirmation that he is dying, then I don't know what is.

Dennis, thank you for sharing your talent with us. I must have watched Speed 20 times. You were amazing in that, and so many other films. You are immortalized, and unforgettable. You are one of the last true "movie stars'.

It really is a bad statement on Hollywood, Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and the Hollywood Walk of Fame, that Dennis Hopper gets a star at this late stage of his life, but Donald Trump, who has done absolutely nothing except host a reality show, got one a couple years back. It is no longer an honor to be honored on the Walk of Fame. If you have the money, you get a star, and those deserving, like Dennis Hopper, have to wait until the end. I'm sure Paris Hilton will have one shortly for her contributions!
