James Whitmore, aka Brooks Hatlin from The Shawshank Redemption Has Passed Away


James Whitmore passed away at the age of 87 yesterday. I remember James the most for his role in The Shawshank Redemption. He played the character of Brooks Hatlin, who was the prison librarian who eventually was paroled and ended up committing suicide. James did a superb job of making you truly feel Brooks' pain and loneliness once he was out of prison.

Whitmore brought this same type of passion to all of his roles, and he will be sorely missed. I'm sure he's entertaining to a packed crowd up in heaven right now. R.I.P. Mr. Whitmore...
