River Phoenix (August 23, 1970 – October 31, 1993)
Phoenix was born in Madras, Oregon and died in Hollywood, L.A., California. It’s his would-be 42nd birthday.
A young actor that was taken from the world too soon.
He was perfect in his role in Stand by Me; played Young Indy in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade; and was in the film My Own Private Idaho in 1991 alongside Keanu Reeves. Phoenix was nominated for the 1989 Oscar for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his work in Running on Empty.
The only film I’ve seen with Phoenix was Stand by Me, but I’d really like to see a lot of his films.
