Top 5 Roles of Chris Penn’s Career
Why not celebrate his all-too-short career with a list of his top five films. Here they are >
Reservoir Dogs: As Nice Guy Eddie, Penn ran the crime show for his dad until hell broke loose.
Rumble Fish: In his debut feature performance, Penn was a member of Matt Dillon’s unruly gang in this Francis Ford Coppola tale.
The Funeral: As Christopher Walken’s gangster brother, Penn won the best supporting actor award at the Venice Film Festival in this role.
The Darwin Awards: Premiered at Sundance the day after his death, Penn played an ice fisherman who thinks that dynamite might be the best way to break the ice.
Grand Theft Auto: In this increasingly video game-dominated world or ours, perhaps Penn’s legacy will thrive longest as the voice of a particularly crooked cop in this hit game.
