Chris Penn, the younger brother of Sean Penn, was found dead in his Santa Monica condominium yesterday. There were no obvious signs of foul play, but an autopsy is planned to determine the cause of death.
It's always sad when somebody dies, especially when they're as young as Chris was. And although he never had any major leading roles, you'd probably recognize him as that funny fat guy in a number of movies. You can view a list of all his movie credits here, most notable of which is probably his role of Nice Guy Eddie in Reservoir Dogs.
