LOS ANGELES - Actor Chris Penn, brother of Sean Penn, was found dead Tuesday at his condominium near the beach in Santa Monica, police said.

Police said they discovered the 40-year-old actor's body around 4 p.m. Lt. Frank Fabrega said there were no obvious signs of foul play.

Sean Penn's publicist, Mara Buxbaum, issued a statement saying that "the Penn family would appreciate the media's respect of their privacy during this difficult time."

Chris Penn's body was found inside the four-story condominium complex after police were called by someone from within the building, Fabrega said.

Penn's body was discovered in a bed inside the residence, located in a four-story condominium complex near the beach on Ocean Avenue in Santa Monica, said Capt. Ed Winter of the county coroner's office. Authorities were called to the condominium complex by Penn's housekeeper, Winter said.

An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death, authorities said.

Chris Penn's credits included "Mulholland Falls," "Rumble Fish," "All the Right Moves," "Footloose" and "Rush Hour." He also played Nice Guy Eddie Cabot in the 1992 Quentin Tarantino crime drama "Reservoir Dogs."

His late father, Leo Penn, directed television shows. His mother, Eileen Ryan, is an actress whose credits include "I Am Sam," "Magnolia" and "Parenthood." Another brother is musician Michael Penn.

Chris Penn's latest film, "The Darwin Awards," was scheduled to premiere Wednesday at the Sundance Film Festival.

I just read this in the newspaper. What a shame. I don't know the cause of death, but if it ends up being natural, I wouldn't be surprised. Chris had gotten rather portly in recent years. Regardless, my condolances to the Penn family.

Awful. Much too young.

He was great in "Reservoir Dogs". What a great movie (although not for the kiddies).

Not great for the adults either. In my maturing years I find movies with excessive violence quite hideous. One exception being Saving Private Ryan which from a historical perspective told a valuable lesson about the sacrifice made on the beaches of France.

What was his role in True Romance? I don't remember him in that. . . . wait, was he one of the cops at the end?

I liked him as the big gay mobster in Corky Romano. Nice bat-work against those skin-heads.

Actually I find Resevoir Dogs to be a brilliant example of great Dialuge(SP?). It flows perfectly like people actually talk.

Harvey Kitell(Again spelling sorry) is one of the great actors of our generation.

Sorry to hear Chris Penn departed this world too early.

Later,seeing him in "Resevoir Dogs","True Romance"(*one of the cops at the end) and hearing his voice on the videogame "GrandTheftAuto:San Andreas".....
RIP Chris Penn....it sucks to see you go!

I think everyone has theor own tatses- gratuitous nudity, excessive violance, bizarre humor...to each his own...Entertainment does not have to make a histroical point, teach a lessson, or please everyone...that is why we can make "choices" and don't have to watch, listen or see everything... just what we want..

Was just reading some sarcastic comments at his page on the IMDB by some posters.......


It f*cking makes me sick how some people can make a joke out of someones death...within hours after or anytime. I hate that Sh*t. I hope bastards like that suffer beyond belief when it's their time.

Radio DeeJays are the worst......

I remember when George Harrison died...this local talk show host made sarcastic comments all day....say **** like "Yes folks...Journey passed away today" (which made no sense at all)

Later a friend of the host died and he was blubbering all over the radio.....

I sent him an e-mail and said " I'm so sorry to hear of your friend's passing and for you too, I hope you believe my sincerity....it's much more than the respect you gave George Harrison.

I was working at the Courier company at the time...and drivers started calling and said that he commented "Kenny Babb...wherever you are out there...your a douchebag !"

I was reading on Yahoo's message board the other day, folks making cruel, hideous remarks about the reporter hostage lady....things I could not imagine coming out of someones mouth.

This country is full of sick disgusting freaks that can laugh at any tragedy

Sorry to rant in Chris Penn's thread....but that stuff burns me....

ODR, take that crap from the DJ and put it away knowing he didn't have the balls to say it to your face. Still, it would be worth a b!tch slap to him for using your full name on air.

I thought the movie that both Chris and Sean were in called "At Close Range" was a very undrerrated movie. It was one of Christopher Walken's best roles as their criminal father who actually killed Chris' character at the end of the flick. All three did a hell of a job in their very believable roles. I highly recommend it. RIP Mr Penn.

One of the things I gave my daughter for Christsmas was a DVD of "At close Range"...Walken is so ruthless in it..........very good movie.


Here's the plot summary for the movie "Deceiver" I mentioned..also very good...at least to me. :


Author: Philip Van der Veken from Tessenderlo, Belgium

It isn't too hard to understand why this movie wasn't a great success at the box office. Most people expect to see an average Hollywood version of a cop movie and they will be very disappointed when seeing this one. No, it isn't about the good cop chasing the bad guys, making a beautiful little hole in the forehead of everyone that doesn't obey the law. This movie is much more subtle and probably a lot harder to understand for a lot of people.

In fact, the whole movie is created around only three actors. But not just three actors, we are talking about Chris Penn, Tim Roth and Michael Rooker, who all did an excellent job. Trust me, never have I been more fascinated by three men in a darkened room, pushing each other to their mental and physical limits.

This is how the story goes: A prostitute has been murdered and there is one suspect. He's an extremely intelligent, epileptic alcoholic who is able to deceive everybody, even the polygraph. His investigators try to make him confess the murder by playing little mind games, only to see that he outsmarts them time after time.

The dialogs are fascinating, the use of flashbacks very interesting. Add some tense interrogation scenes with a lot of psychological war fare and a huge plot twist at the end of the movie and you know you have something special. I guess those psychological games will not be understood by everybody, but you'll love it if you are intelligent enough to understand them. I know I did and I give this movie an 8/10.

Cast overview, first billed only:
Chris Penn .... Detective Phillip Braxton
Ellen Burstyn .... Mook
Tim Roth .... James Walter Wayland
Renée Zellweger .... Elizabeth
Michael Rooker .... Detective Edward Kennesaw
Rosanna Arquette .... Mrs. Kennesaw

I'm 50. I thought Reservoir Dogs was absolutely atrocious. Just my opinion. Nothing against Chris Penn.

I realize that...sometimes I get a little antsy......

To be honest I have loaned my copy of Reservoir Dogs to a few people that are not into that kind of movie and most of them freaked about it.....it is violent as hell.

We all have our movie quirks......

I have a huge collection of horror movies and since I have been sick for over a month...I can't stand watching them....especially my Zombie movies....Hell I feel like one myself....last thing I want to see is a walking corpse.....

by the way I'm 49...and still need to mature a bit.

Sorry about the sarcastic reply above........

Chris Penn and Christopher Walken also appear together in The Funeral. When I saw it recently I thought Penn looked terrible, kind of like Chris Farley before he died. Both actors are outstanding in this movie. RIP Chris Penn
