The 39-year-old actor took to Twitter the next day to share his memories of Ron, who played beloved character Billy Bob in the 1999 movie.

“Sad day… #RonLester was a sensitive soul with a huge heart. Everything you loved about Billy Bob was authentically Ron. #RIP bud,” James wrote.

He continued, “I’ll never forget how committed #RonLester was on every take – even when the camera wasn’t on him… #giving #rare.”
