Superman actor Jackie Cooper dies at 88

Oscar-nominated child star of Skippy, who went on to play Daily Planet editor in Superman, has died from an undisclosed illness

Jackie Cooper, the former child movie star who won a best actor Oscar nomination at the age of nine for Skippy and grew up to play the Daily Planet editor in Christopher Reeve's four Superman movies, has died. He was 88.

Cooper died from an undisclosed illness on Tuesday at a Los Angeles hospital, agent Ronnie Leif said.

A handsome kid with tousled blond hair and a winning smile, Cooper had a memorable bit in the 1929 musical Sunnyside Up and appeared in eight of the popular Our Gang comedies, including Pups Is Pups and Teacher's Pet. Those credits led to a test that won him the title role of Skippy.

His other credits included Sooky and The Love Machine.
