• Powers Boothe, a character actor known for his deep voice and a penchant for playing villains, has died at the age of 68. Boothe won an Emmy in 1980 for playing cult leader Jim Jones; more recently, he has played a corrupt senator in "Sin City," a president on "24," a ruthless saloonkeeper on "Deadwood," an industrialist on "Nashville," and a conspirator for Hydra on "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."
