Brittany Murphy Dead at 32

CLUELESS co-star Brittany Murphy died this morning of an apparent heart attack at 32. You may know her better from SIN CITY, 8 MILE, or GIRL, INTERRUPTED.

My favorite film of hers is the little-known 1997 actioner DRIVE, which is most likely the best American action movie never to play theaters. She plays Deliverance Bodine, an adorable and slightly eccentric motel owner who helps stars Mark Dacascos and Kadeem Hardison battle bad guys during the fast-paced film's explosive second act.

Murphy was a decent actress in the right part, and was especially good opposite Eminem in the autobiographical 8 MILE.

Really terrible news...I have yet to see DRIVE and will seek it out based on your recommendation.
