Rutger Hauer, Passes Away At 75

 

Dutch film actor Rutger Hauer, who specialized in menacing roles, including a memorable turn as a murderous android in “Blade Runner” opposite Harrison Ford, has died.

 

Hauer’s roles included a terrorist in “Nighthawks” with Sylvester Stallone, a former C-E-O of Wayne Enterprises in “Batman Begins,” and he was in the big-budget 1985 fantasy “Ladyhawke.”

He won a supporting-actor Golden Globe award in 1988 for “Escape from Sobibor.”

 

 

 

 

In “Blade Runner,” he played the murderous replicant Roy Batty on a desperate quest to prolong his artificially shortened life in post-apocalyptic, 21st-century Los Angeles.

 

Hauer’s agent, Steve Kenis, says the actor died July 19th at his home in the Netherlands. He was 75.
