Omg they are dying in the same order they died in the movie....someone email Tom Skerrit to watch himself.

Or maybe Ian Holm? Depends if we're taking the deleted cocoon scene into consideration...
Wow. Now that would be a twist. As if God himself is chiming in on which is really the better cut of Alien.

Brett was always one of my favourite characters. Harry Dean Stanton always seemed so wonderfully naturalistic in whatever he was in, but always brought just a hint of an oddball quality. Dude was perfect for Alien.

If anyone's interested, No Small Parts did a pretty interesting biography on him...

91 years; a solid run. So many of the people involved in these wonderful films are passing away. The end of a generation I suppose. He was a fine actor, and fantastic in Alien. May he rest in peace.

I've spotted him throughout films over the years but other than Alien I don't recall seeing any of his other great performances. Brett was always a favourite of mine because of Stanton's dead pan performance. I've even occasionally caught myself using his trademark "Riiight" during conversations.

Spent some of today reading more about him to get a better picture of him. Hopefully the black void is everything he wanted it to be.

Thanks for an incredible performance in my favourite film, Mr. Stanton. I'll be sure to check out your other work.

He is the reason that Parker's death was so appealing to me.  Ever since Parker told him to go get Jones, I loathed Parker for taking advantage of Brett's good nature.  Sure, there was some redemption when Parker rescued Ripley from Ash but Brett was, by far, my favorite character and so I never completely forgave Parker.

RIP Harry. 

"You still with us, Brett?" will take on a whole new meaning next time I see you in Alien.

Brett let go of the cat, so it was his fault that they might pick the cat up on the tracker again.  And he volunteered anyway.
