LOS ANGELES, July 20 (UPI) -- Starz says it is planning a tribute to Hollywood icon Dennis Hopper, who died of cancer last May.

Hopper is best known for his work in the films "Rebel Without a Cause," "Giant," "True Grit," "Easy Rider," "Apocalypse Now" and "Speed."

The Academy Award-nominated actor, director, artist and photographer received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame shortly before his death at the age of 74. He currently has a retrospective of his artistic work at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.

Hopper also played fictitious record producer Ben Cendars on Starz's first original drama series "Crash" for two seasons.

Starz Edge is to show five episodes from the show, supplemented by interviews with Hopper and other "Crash" cast members.

In addition, his photography and art will be shown as well as remembrances from some of his longtime friends, the cable television network said.
