The actor who played Russ Jordan in the iconic classic Aliens and has also been in the likes of The Dark Knight Rises.

He passed on the 4th of April from complications arising from COVID-19. 

If you don’t recognise him by name, that’s fair enough, the movie came out in 1986 so no one blames you.

But if you haven’t SEEN IT, that’s a different thing all together, get yo ass in gear.

Russ Jordan, played by the late Jay Benedict is the character that started everything.

He was the first to get infected by the facehuggers and in doing so… started the entire alien infestation.

So while Russ didn’t do so well, Jay Benedict did an incredible job and will be remembered forever for his contribution to cinema.
