Adam West, the actor known for playing the title role in the 1960s television series Batman, died Friday after a short battle with leukemia, his family confirmed to Variety, the Hollywood Reporter and the BBC. He was 88.

“Our dad always saw himself as The Bright Knight and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans’ lives. He was and always will be our hero,” his family said in a statement.

The actor is best remembered for his turn as Gotham’s Caped Crusader — though his career spanned six decades of film, stage and voice work.

Adam West, TV’s ‘Batman,’ Dies at 88

10 June 2017 8:19 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Adam West — an actor defined and also constrained by his role in the 1960s series “Batman” — died Friday night in Los Angeles. He was 88. A rep said that he died after a short battle with leukemia.

“Our dad always saw himself as The Bright Knight, and aspired to make a positive impact on his fans’ lives. He was and always will be our hero,” his family said in a statement.

West became known to a new generation of TV fans through his recurring voice role on Fox’s “Family Guy” as Mayor Adam West, the horribly corrupt, inept and vain leader of Quahog, Rhode Island. West was a regular on the show from 2000 through its most recent season. West in recent years did a wide range of voice-over work, on such shows as Adult Swim’s “Robot Chicken” and Disney Channel’s “Jake and the Neverland Pirates.”

"The Rifleman" - 'Lucas McCain'

3 June 2017 6:52 AM, PDT | SneakPeek | See recent SneakPeek news »

Take a look @ footage from the classic 1950's CBS TV western series "The Rifleman", originally developed by Sam Peckinpah, gaining a new generation of fans for 6' 6" actor Chuck Connors as 'Lucas McCain' and Johnny Crawford as his son 'Mark', airing every Saturday morning on AMC. But one big question always remains: just how many bad guys did McCain kill in total throughout the series' entire 5 year run ?

Peckinpah, developed, wrote and directed many of the best episodes from the first season, basing characters and situations on real-life scenarios from his childhood growing up on a ranch.

His insistence on violent realism and complex characterizations, as well as his refusal to sugarcoat the lessons he felt the Rifleman's son needed to learn about life, soon put him at odds with producers at Four Star and he left the show...

The Ballad of Cable Hogue

29 May 2017 9:59 AM, PDT | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

Easily the most mellow of the films of Sam Peckinpah, this relatively gentle western fable sees Jason Robards discovering water where it ain’t, and establishing his private little way station paradise, complete with lover Stella Stevens and eccentric preacher David Warner. Some of the slapstick is sticky but the sexist bawdy humor is too cute to offend . . . and Peckinpah-phobes will be surprised to learn that the movie is in part a musical.

The 10 Manliest Male Characters on TV Right Now

9 January 2017 8:00 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Since television began, America has had a love affair with manly men on the small screen. In the early days, most of them were cowboys like Chuck Connors in “The Rifleman” and James Arness in “Gunsmoke”. Now we’ve evolved quite a bit and our favorite manly men often wear suits and even eyeglasses like Tom, Kiefer, and Michael. But, more about them later. Ok, let’s face it, many of us still love seeing a manly man shirtless, like Justin Hartley who never seems to get a single role that doesn’t write him into the script as shirtless in multiple scenes,
