Top Ten Best Actors and Actresses Who Died Too Soon

Blue_Devereaux

Philip Seymour Hoffman died today, February 2, 2014, which is a bummer. It made me think of other actors and actresses who died too soon. There are many, but I tried to narrow it down to the most talented who had a body of work that exemplified that talent. Don't agree with the list?

The Top Ten

1
James Dean
Unmatched Oscar nominations for his movies: 2/3 of his movies were nominated for Best Actor... And feat that has been unmatched.

He only had three films: East of Eden, Rebel Without a Cause, and Giant; however, his talent was unmistakable.
