    Dennis Hopper dying of prostate cancer

    Dennis Hopper will attend Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony -

    Los Angeles, California (CNN) -- When Dennis Hopper attends the dedication of his star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame Friday, it may be the last time his fans see the actor alive.

    Hopper, whose acting career spanned almost six decades, is dying of prostate cancer, according to documents filed in his divorce case this week.

    His breakout role was in 1969 with the movie "Easy Rider," but his career began in the 1950s with live TV and co-starring roles in two films with James Dean. He was twice nominated for Oscars.

    Hopper, 73, is undergoing radical chemotherapy for advanced, metastasized prostate cancer, his doctor said.

    He is too weak and ill to be questioned by lawyers in the divorce, but attending Friday's ceremony "is a positive experience in every way," his doctor's sworn statement said.

    Advanced is bad. Metastasized is very bad.
