John Hurt Has Passed Away

27 January 2017 6:50 PM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

John Hurt had been battling pancreatic cancer in recent years and we’re sad to inform readers that he has passed away at the age of 77. While we don’t have details surrounding his passing, this news is being reported by several sources, including The Mirror, that confirmed his death. We’ll be sure to update the story with an official statement from his family if or when it becomes available.

Of course, John Hurt is no stranger to genre fans. For this fan in particular and, like many of you reading this, it was Alien that first turned me onto this incredibly talented and versatile actor. Whether it was poking fun at himself in Spaceballs, bringing the gravitas needed to ground V for Vendetta in reality, or making me wish that he was given an entire series dedicated to the War Doctor, his presence elevated so many of the »

Mike Connors Dies: Mannix Star Was 91

26 January 2017 7:46 PM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Mike Connors passed away today of leukemia at a hospital in Tarzana, CA. He was 91.

Connors is best known for his role as Joe Mannix on the CBS series Mannix that ran from 1967-1975.

He was good guy, a private detective who could take a punch like none other. 

Kreker J. Ohanian was born in Fresno, California in 1925. Of Armenian descent, the actor was told to change his name because it sounded too much like George O'Hanlon.

Connors began his film and television career in 1952 under the name Touch (a nickname he earned in college) Connors. 

Early on in the 1950s, he had a bevy of small roles in westerns such as Gun Smoke, Have Gun, Will Travel and Maverick

In 1959, Connors got his first series regular role in Tightrope.

Tightrope was originally going to be called Undercover Man, and that makes sense. Connor's character was an undercover agent who »

Blatty went on to direct The Ninth Configuration (1980) and »
