RIP: Darren McGavin
While I know some of y'all are going 'Who?', I know others recognize this as the passing of the original Kolchac.
McGavin, 83, died Saturday of natural causes at a Los Angeles-area hospital with his family at his side, said his son Bogart McGavin. McGavin also had leading roles in TV's "Riverboat" and cult favorite "Kolchak: The Night Stalker." Among his memorable portrayals was Gen. George Patton in the 1979 TV biography "Ike."McGavin's official website is here; his IMDb page is here. [via Pam Spaulding @ Pandagon]
