"Was an honor, man", tweeted Jon Cryer, who played "Duckie" in Pretty in Pink, one of few films that cast Stanton against type as a wholesome father.

Early on in his career, Stanton was often picked up to play intimidating crooks or ill-tempered sidekicks on television shows like Bat Masterson, Johnny Ringo, The Adventures of Rin Tin Tin, The Rifleman, The Untouchables, and U.S. Marshal. If talking about his career he saw many new actors and directors coming in front of him and achieving the heights of success.

He died peacefully at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles after working for more than 60 years in Hollywood.

"There's nobody like Harry Dean", Lynch said in a statement. He's got this easygoing nature. "There's nobody like Harry Dean", Lynch said Friday evening, joining a chorus of praise for the actor.

Other notable appearances include Down Periscope, Fire Down Below, The Green Mile, The Pledge, Anger Management, Inland Empire, and Twin Peaks: Firewalk with Me. Stanton has the title role of Lucky, a 90-year-old fiercely independent atheist searching for enlightenment.

Afterward, he utilized music as an escape from his folks' quarreling and the occasionally severe treatment he was subjected to by his dad.

He likewise sang and played guitar and harmonica in offhand sessions with companions, played out a tune in "Paris, Texas" and once recorded a two part harmony with Bob Dylan.
