Darren McGavin Dead At 83

Darren McGavin - A Christmas StoryNot only did I miss the death of Don Knotts last week, but I also overlooked that of actor Darren McGavin, who died last week at the age of 83 of natural causes. McGavin was perhaps best known as a TV actor, starring in the series Mike Hammer and Kolchak, among others. His film credits included memorable roles in films like The Natural and A Christmas Story, as seen to the right.

It’s sad to see two actors representing some of my fondest childhood memories pass on like this. Here’s hoping that bad news doesn’t come in threes… 🙁
