Malloy played AMC‘s Travis from 1987 to 1998. Walt Willey, who portrayed his on-screen brother Jack on the ABC soap, posted on Facebook Thursday that Malloy had died of complications from a recent heart attack.
Larkin Malloy welcomed me like a brother when I joined the cast in 1987. We worked together, did appearances together, partied together, vacationed together. He was an “actor’s actor,” spending many years teaching the craft, and a gentleman in the Old World style. We spent many hours together,

Actor James Noble has died at the age of 94. The New York Times has confirmed his death at Norwalk Hospital in Connecticut, on Monday, March 28, 2016. Noble is perhaps best known for his role as the affable, bumbling Governor Eugene Xavier Gatling, on the Benson TV series, which was cancelled after seven seasons by ABC, only after that final season ended on a network requested cliffhanger.
Noble also played Raymond Voss on the 1988 CBS sitcom, First Impressions, starring Brad Garrett, which was cancelled after just five of eight completed episodes aired, that fall. Much of Noble's early TV work was on now long-cancelled soap operas including The Brighter Day, The Edge of Night, As the World Turns, Another World, The Doctors, and One Life to Live.
His first appearance was on The Millionaire TV series, in 1957. Director James Sheldon, who died on Saturday, March 19, directed that series. Other TV appearances by Douglas include the soap operas Another World, The Doctors, and The Edge of Night, as well as primetime offerings like 12 O'Clock High, Ironside, and Spenser for Hire.
After the crash of Elliott’s plane, Billie Jo asks the family, “Do you think we’ll get to keep him?” while the family stands over the crop duster, who’s been knocked out.
Steve Elliott was a character on “Petticoat Junction” from fall 1966 until the series ended in 1970. Elliott married Betty Jo on the show — and Minor married Linda Kaye Henning, who portrayed Linda Jo in 1968. (Henning and Elliott were married for five years.)
He appeared on “CHiPs” and “Vega$” and recurred in 1980-81 as Brandon Kingsley, one of Erica Kane’s lovers, on “All My Children” (he
Minor was married to his Petticoat Junction co-star Linda Henning (Betty Jo) from 1968 until their divorce in 1973. Her father, Paul Henning, created both Petticoat Junction and The Beverly Hillbillies, and executive produced Green Acres. All three countrified TV shows were cancelled by CBS between 1970 and 1971, in what is referred to to as the "rural purge," which began when networks started targeting the 18-49 year old viewer ratings demographic.
With The Hobbit trilogy now concluded and Peter Jackson having theoretically said goodbye to Middle-earth forever, Monaghan's post got us thinking about the rest of the Fellowship. Below, we take a look at all nine members of the Fellowship and what they're up to today.
Elijah Wood (Frodo)
After Frodo said his goodbyes and departed for the Undying Lands (don't pretend you're not tearing up at the mere memory), Elijah Wood veered away from blockbuster lead roles in favour of an eclectic mix of indie movies comprising the great (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), the good (Everything Is Illuminated) and the ugly (Green Street).
His most memorable post-Frodo role has to be mute, cannibalistic serial killer Kevin in Frank Miller's Sin City,
'The Last Goodbye' will run over the end credits of the final film in the trilogy.
The Lord of the Rings actor has already lent his voice to Peter Jackson, performing 'Edge of Night' in Return of the King, which was also used in one of the trailers for Five Armies.
Boyd who played Pippin Took in the trilogy co-wrote the song with filmmakers Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies – starring Martin Freeman, Sir Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage and Luke Evans – will be released on December 12 in the UK and on December 17 in the Us.
Watch a trailer for the film here.
A recent announcement suggests that Lord of the Ring’s Pippin – a.k.a. Billy Boyd – will be taking on the challenge of singing the final Hobbit credits song. Considering previous Hobbit original songs have not quite lived up to the reputation of Oscar-winning Lotr songs like Annie Lennox’s ‘Into the West’, Boyd has the chance to make a real mark and round off the latest trilogy in award-winning style.
A hint was dropped that
While the trailer contains some nice shots on a visual level, very much in keeping with the Lord of the Rings trilogy, about 80% of the trailer's awesome is provided by the song. Pippin's mournful song from Return of the King, that plays intercut with the doomed mission that Faramir leads on his father Denethor's orders, accompanies this trailer to great effect, lending it a dignified, elegiac beauty. It's a sad song, but sad is just happy for deep people...
According to Wikipedia (which has spoilers, in case you somehow haven't seen the Lord of the Rings trilogy yet), the song is called Edge of Night, with a melody composed by Billy Boyd himself, with lyrics adapted from Tolkien's
The trailer, which finds everyone suiting up for a final confrontation with the dragon Smaug, promises a climactic end to the three-part series. Gandalf, Biblo, Legolas, and others prepare for war, while we get brief glimpses of Smaug’s power—and even a wink from Sauron. Most notably, the teaser features “Edge of Night,” which was sung by Billy Boyd
There will also be dragons.
“The Defining Chapter” of the Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, will star Martin Freemanas Bilbo Baggins and Ian McKellen as Gandalf with Lee Pace, Benedict Cumberbatch, Evangeline Lilly, Cate Blanchett, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Hugo Weaving, Billy Connolly, Christopher Lee, and Aidan Turner.
Check out the brand new trailer for the film below, and a bonus poster of Martin Freeman as the eponymous and infamous hobbit:
