LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Actor Chris Penn has died in a Santa Monica residence, with no signs of foul play, a local ABC television affiliate reported on Tuesday.

Penn, 43, was the brother of actor Sean Penn and starred in dozens of films.

He played baby-faced criminal Nice Guy Eddie Cabot in director Quentin Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs" and starred along with his brother in the 1986 film "At Close Range." He also played Willard Hewitt in "Footloose" in 1984.

Recently, Penn voiced Officer Eddie Pulaski in the video game "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas."

Santa Monica police and the Los Angeles County Coroner were not immediately available for comment.

He was a big guy - maybe his heart just gave out. It would be nice if one of these guys died young of natural causes for a change.

In any event, he was a good actor. RIP

Come on...he's Sean Penn's Brother! Gotta be a bit screwed in the head...and certainly on a cocktail of drugs on a regular basis. I did like him as the quirky cop in "True Romance"...a film written by Tarantino.

Don't ask me why I remember Chris Penn, but I do.

I looked it up and he had 49 catches and 5 TDs in 1996. Why'd we let him go?

We brought in Andre Rison the following year but had no one opposite him.

I guess Marty thought Lake Dawson and Kimble Anders could pick up the slack.

I'm guessing, but wasn't Brett Perriman supposed to be the guy that was going to do great things in 1997? I guess that's why we dumped Penn.

I think he was one of those players that picked up his stats because there was no one else around to throw the ball to. I remember him being slow with none of his skills really standing out.

The next season we had Lake Dawson comming off injury to be the #2. Damn that guy was a disappointment.

I bet you were real excited when they invented jeans in 1872.

Jeans were developed in America around 1872. Levi Strauss was a Bavarian dry goods merchant living in San Francisco. One of Levi's customers was Jacob Davis, a tailor who frequently purchased bolts of cloth from the Levi Strauss & Co wholesale house. After one of Jacob's customers kept purchasing cloth to reinforce torn trousers, he had an idea to use copper rivets to reinforce the points of strain, such as on the pocket corners and at the base of the button fly. Jacobs did not have the required money to purchase a patent, so he wrote to Levi suggesting that they both go into business together. After Strauss accepted Davis's offer, on May 20, 1873, the two men received patent #139,121, a patent for an "Improvement in Fastening Pocket-Openings", from the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and the blue jean was born.

When he was on Entourage last year he was a big guy but not overly huge. Definitly well overweight but not Chris Farley size or anything.

The man you just killed was just released from prison. He got caught at a company warehouse full of hot items. He could've ****in' walked. All he had to do was say my dad's name, but he didn't; he kept his ****ing mouth shut. And did his ****in' time, and he did it like a man. He did four years for us. So, Mr. Orange, you're tellin' me this very good friend of mine, who did four years for my father, who in four years never made a deal, no matter what they dangled in front of him, you're telling me that now, that now this man is free, and we're making good on our commitment to him, he's just gonna decide, out of the ****ing blue, to rip us off? Why don't you tell me what really happened?

Excuse me, Mr. Pink, but I think the last ****ing thing you need is another cup of coffee.

Nice Guy Eddie: The chick got tired of him beatin' her so one night she walks in the guys bedroom and super glues his dick to his belly. Ambulance came and had to cut the prick loose.
Mr. Pink: That ain't all that bad.
Nice Guy Eddie: Oh yeah? How would you feel if every time you had to take a piss you had to do a hand stand?

I'd go over twelve percent for that.

RIP Nice Guy

We care because we know who he is. We can match his name to his face, which is more than we can say for the vast majority of people out there. Noting his death doesn't mean he's more important than them; it means someone we knew a little about is dead.

People who feel the need to pull that "Who cares?" shit whenever celebrities die are pathetic.

I remember seeing aninterview with him about a year ago. He looked fat and in poor health. He was sweating and seemed short of breath. Something about him just seemed unhealthy. He also talked about depression due to lack of work. Apparently that GTA SA gig was the best thing that had happened to him in a while.

Overall, I have to say I'm not suprised.
