I know, I know, ladies, Dirty Dancing, blah, blah.

Swayze is, and shall always be, The Bouncer*

From the BBC:

Annett Wolf said that the US actor, who had been battling pancreatic cancer for nearly two years, died with family at his side on Monday.

Swayze was diagnosed with advanced stage four pancreatic cancer in January last year.

The actor had been starring in US TV show The Beast since being diagnosed with the disease. He had also planned to write a memoir with his wife.

“Patrick Swayze passed away peacefully today with family at his side after facing the challenges of his illness for the last 20 months,” said a statement by Annett Wolf quoted by the Associated Press.

*Yes, I know it was a shitty movie, but, considering the years I worked as a bouncer, that movie was like a job manual – no matter how cheesy it was, it always seemed to prove out as true. It was weird. And it has Sam Elliott** in it, and that man can do no wrong.

** I’ve always wondered what a cage match with Sam Elliott and R. Lee Ermey would look like. That would probably destroy the universe.
