Morning Man Classic: Paul Newman!
Paul Newman was, quite simply, one of the best looking men to have ever walked the Earth. Born in 1925, he would have been 97 today.
In addition to his Oscar-winning role in The Color of Money, his other classic films included Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Hustler, The Sting, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Sweet Bird of Youth and Cool Hand Luke among many others.
Newman’s last movie appearance was as a conflicted mob boss in the 2002 film Road to Perdition opposite Tom Hanks, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.
His last appearance overall was in 2005 in the HBO mini-series Empire Falls for which he won a Golden Globe and a Primetime Emmy.
At the time of his death in 2008, he had been married to Joanne Woodward for 50 years.
