RIP Patrick Swayze

Patrick Swayze has died at the age of 57 after a 20-month-long public battle with pancreatic cancer. The news was announced this evening in a statement by his publicist, Annett Wolf.

Swayze became a big screen heartthrob in the late '80s with his role as sexy dancer and dance instructor Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing. He followed up that success with an iconic role in Ghost, in which he costarred with Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg. Most recently, Swazye starred in the critically acclaimed A&E cable series The Beast. [Associated Press via Yahoo! News]
