RESERVOIR DOGS star Edward Bunker has died in hospital in Burbank, California from complications after surgery to improve circulation in his legs.

The 71-year-old diabetic was a habitual criminal in his youth, who turned his life around by writing about his experiences and then became an actor in later life.

As well as playing hardman MR BLUE in Reservoir Dogs, Bunker also portrayed a criminal in the remake of this year's THE LONGEST YARD.

Bunker also co-wrote the screenplay for 1985 action drama Runaway Train and adapted his own book THE ANIMAL FACTORY, in which he featured alongside Willem Dafoe in 2000.

His other bestselling books included DOG EAT DOG and LITTLE BOY BLUE.

Bunker will be remembered by pals like Quentin Tarantino and Steve Buscemi at a memorial service in Hollywood on 10 September (05).
