    The Guardian obituary

    Powerful actor. First saw him in Southern Comfort and then in Boorman's The Emerald Forest. At the time, I thought he was a much more effective leading man than Tommy Lee Jones and I was surprised he did not get more major movies. Shows you what I know. But he never lost any of screen presence, no matter the size of the role.

      First saw him in Southern Comfort, and then Boorman's The Emerald Forest and I thought him a better leading man than Tommy Lee Jones. I would have bet on Boothe having the better career, shows you what I know! Powerful actor though, and always a great presence no matter the size of the role or the quality of the movie.

        My poor brain is so easily confused. I have been confusing Powers Boothe (1948-2017) with Kevin McCarthy (1914-2010). A thirty-four year age difference yet somehow I was thinking Powers Boothe was the star of "Invasion of the Bodysnatchers"(1956)

          A great actor! He was incredible as Rev Jim Jones in "The Guyana Tragedy" & was a powerful presence in everything I saw him in. R.I.P.
