Patrick Swayze, 57, the movie star who starred as an aging FBI agent in A&E’s 2008 series "The Beast," succumbed to pancreatic cancer today.
According to ABC News’ obituary, "The show was shot in Chicago, where he would often work 12 hour days and have chemotherapy treatments on his days off.’Nobody on the set ever saw me whine, moan like a girly-loser-man,’ Swayze said. ‘I would do an attitude adjustment every morning. I think everybody thought I was out of my mind, thinking I’m gonna pull off a TV show, but I’ve never been one to run from a challenge."
Swayze starred in such hit movies as "Dirty Dancing" and "Ghost." His cancer was dianosed in January, 2008.
