Tony Scott | 1944-2012

"Top Gun" director Tony Scott jumped to his death from the Vincent Thomas Bridge in San Pedro, Calif., on Sunday afternoon. He was 68. Scott, the brother of fellow director Ridley Scott, was a respected filmmaker whose adrenaline-filled movies include "Man on Fire," "Enemy of the State" and "Beverly Hills Cop II." The last film he directed was "Unstoppable," a 2010 thriller about a runaway freight train. His career in television included executive producing the series "The Good Wife" and "Numb3rs," both on CBS. Scott's fatal plunge shocked Hollywood colleagues who regarded him as a man with few problems and many stories still to tell. Law enforcement sources said that several notes Scott left do not speak of any health problems or offer solid clues about why he jumped.
