It was very sad hearing that Chad Everett had passed away from cancer, and more than a little surprising. I don't keep up on the health of celebrities so this may not be news, but it turns out that Everett had been battling Lung Cancer for a year and a half. During that time Everett had filmed an episode of Castle, appearing as Jerry Maddox in "The Blue Butterfly", and 14 episodes of Chemistry. Yes, Chad really was that tough.
Everett had a ton of memorable screen time under his belt, but my personal favorite will always be his turn as Dean Winchester in the Supernatural episode "The Curious Case of Dean Winchester". Everett nailed the lingo and mannerisms of Jensen Ackles with memorable, and very funny, perfection.
