Sad News

Condolences to Academy Award-winning actor Chris Cooper and his wife Marianne.

They lost their only child, 17-year-old son Jesse, on Monday night. He died of complications due to cerebral palsy. The Coopers had moved to the South Shore area of Boston from New York because they felt Massachusetts was more progressive about mainstreaming kids with disabilities, according to the Boston Herald.

--Sad. On a Chris Cooper note, while he rarely has main lead roles, I think he is one of the finest actors on the screen today.

You Said

Very sad! He's had some very obscure roles, and is indeed a fine actor.

Wow. That is awful. Cerebral palsy? I never knew it could be life-threatening (I had a friend a few years ago who had CP, although mild by comparison to others).

As for Chris Cooper...I've been a fan of his ever since he played July Johnson in Lonesome Dove. He even appeared in a Why Store video almost 10 years ago.

Sad news.

How sad for the Coopers. And, I agree with you; I think Chris is a fine actor.
