Powers Boothe in Deadwood

Screen tough guy Powers Boothe was born on June 1, 1948 in Snyder, Texas. A farmer's son, he was accustomed to hard physical work on the farm. He played football and appeared in school plays at Snyder High School. He attended Texas State University in San Marcos, and earned an MA in drama from Southern Methodist University in University Park, Texas.

Well known for his portrayal of the snarling gunslinger Curly Bill Brocius, confronting the Earps in Tombstone, his most remembered role remains that of Cy Tolliver, the (fictional) owner of the (historical) Bella Union saloon and brothel, chief nemesis of Al Swearingen on HBO's Deadwood.

Powers Boothe died in his sleep at age 68 on the morning of May 14, 2017 of a heart attack after battling pancreatic cancer for six months in Los Angeles, where he raised racing quarter horses.
