    I will remember him fondly in Footloose. He was a hoot in that movie.
    How sad.



    Thanks for reading my posts.

    Drugs I bet. Sad for him and his family. I do recall seeing him in some movies. He was a good actor but Sean overshadowed him.

    So sad.

    I'm not so sure about it being drugs. According to the IMDB entry for the 2005 movie, Holly, "Tom Sizemore was originally slated to play Freddie but after being arrested for failing several drug tests, he was dropped from the production and replaced by 'Chris Penn' " (more)

    I'm thinking heart attack or some other sudden medical disaster.

    I'm not that familiar with him, but I'm always curious when they cite
    "undisclosed causes". I wonder if they will release more info to the public when it becomes available.

    I don't know anything about his personal life, either. IMDB doesn't show that he's ever married. I didn't get any gossip hits when I googled him. He looked a little puffy in recent pictures . . . but then again so do I. Guess we'll hear soon.

    The news said that he lived in a condo and one of the neighbors called the police.I would guess that with the fact that the neighbor called and there was no foulplay,he most likely used a gun.That is so sad.

    I hadn't even thought of suicide. But it could be that the neighbor called for some other reason than hearing a shot.

    This article gives a few different facts than previous ones:

    Santa Monica police were called by a housekeeper in Penn's first-floor unit at 1033 Ocean Ave. just after 4 p.m. Tuesday and arrived to find the actor's body in his bed, authorities said

    I'm so sad to hear this. He was great in Footloose and All the Right Moves. His family is in my prayers.

    Coroner's officials will seek to determine the cause of death and will conduct toxicology tests, Fabrega said. But asked late Tuesday whether Penn's death appeared to be the result of anything other than natural causes, coroner's spokesman Ed Winter said: "Not at this time."
