Sad news, way too young. I see there is going to be a reboot of beverly hills 90210 with quite a few original cast members returning, apparently luke was going to be in as many episodes as he could do.

RIP Stringfellow Hawk

 

God I can tell I'm getting old when some of the biggest stars from 80s TV shows & movies that I loved as a kid are passing away. 

Rip String fellow Hawke, I bet you & Dominic (aka Ernest Borgnine) are having a blast up there.
