Following the news that actor Bill Paxton had passed away this weekend due to complications from heart surgery, tributes from Hollywood’s biggest names began pouring in all over social media. Arnold Schwarzenegger, Tom Hanks, and director James Cameron were just a few to remember the late actor, but no one posted more tributes than the cast of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. In one of his best performances, Paxton played S.H.I.E.L.D. agent turned Hydra operative John Garrett, making him one of, if not the top villain the team has ever faced.
From new faces to the OGs, see their touching tributes below:
Bill Paxton was 1 of my favorite fellow Texans. He shot Training Day on the same lot as us and would visit now and again. Great man.#RipBill

Bill Paxton was a craftsman with the kind of acting range most of us only dream of. I can't believe he's gone. Unacceptable. (3)

Just found this on my phone. I told him "that's too much handsome on one bike…" he said " I know!"— he was always trying to make everyone laugh. Waking up to this news is heartbreaking. He's one of the good ones. Incredible actor, so kind, so funny. My thoughts are with his family. RIP Bill. Heaven just got a little more handsome. You will be missed.❤❤❤❤
Words can't describe my sadness this morning. Bill Paxton didn't just play my mentor on @agentsofshield he became my mentor in real life. They don't make people like him anymore. He oozed charm, he improvised some of the most iconic movie lines of all time, and he could tell a story that would stop an entire production because everyone was laughing. My thoughts are with his family. The world is a much sadder place without him.
Sadly, Bill’s current role on the CBS series Training Day and the upcoming film The Circle will serve as his final performances. The next episode is scheduled to air this Thursday at 10/9c.
