Among the myriad losses created by actor Bill Paxton’s sudden passing, few might recall TV credits like the Twister star’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 1 stint as Hydra villain John Garrett. The character seemed thoroughly retired, though Season 4's recent introduction of a “What If” reality opened a door for Paxton to return, something producers have stepped up to clarify is not the case.

As a teenager in the ’90s, no actor better represented blockbuster movies than Bill Paxton. Although Paxton wasn’t typically a leading man in those movies  —  he would often play the brother, the second-in-command, or the comic relief  —  he served as a kind of talisman of quality. If you saw Paxton’s name in the opening credits of a movie, you knew that the film was going to be better for it.

CBS’ adaptation of Antoine Fuqua’s Training Day made clear early on that it would reverse the racial dynamic between its two leads, but there is an obscure bingo winner out there who had Bill Paxton replacing Denzel Washington. That’s right, the guy from Big Love is your new corrupt cop, and King Kong … well, probably has a thing or two on him.

A few weeks ago, I was in a local drug store by my apartment in New York City. Near the back of the store, there’s a discount rack where everything is 25 percent off its the original price. Mixed in with overstocked seasonal items was a LEGO set for the 2010 movie ‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.’ Included in the set was a mini LEGO figure of Jake Gyllenhaal. He’s riding an ostrich. As I stared in disbelief at LEGO Jake Gyllenhaal riding an ostrich, it was like staring into an alternate future where these were the kind of movies that Gyllenhaal was still making … instead of a glorious movie like ‘Nightcrawler.’
