Darren McGavin dies at 83

We have already posted the death of Don Knotts. Here is another one of my favorite actors growing up. I loved Karl Kolchak and Mike HAmmer as well.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Emmy-winning actor Darren McGavin, who played grouchy monster chaser Carl Kolchak in the 1970s television series "Kolchak: The Night Stalker," died on Saturday at a Los Angeles hospital, according to a statement on his Web site. He was 83.

McGavin was born in Spokane, Washington, in 1922. His career spanned seven decades, and included roles in both television and film. He starred in five television series, including "Mike Hammer," and won an Emmy in 1990 for a supporting role as Candice Bergen's father in an episode of the popular situation comedy "Murphy Brown."

But his most memorable role was as the grouchy father in the film "A Christmas Story," originally released in 1983, but a television staple on holidays ever since.

McGavin is survived by four children.

When I was a kid my brother and I would watch Mike Hammer on Saturday nights. A great show and a great actor.

I remember the Mike Hammer series but I thought that his Riverboat series was a better show.

I remember when he guested on the X-Files in a nod to his series Kolchak: The Night Stalker.

Plus who can forget the Christmas Story. "It's fra-gil-e, must be from Italy"
