Joseph Campanella Dead at 93

Actor Joseph Campanella died on Wednesday, May 16. He was 93.

Campanella, who received a Tony Award nomination in 1962 for best supporting actor for his performance in "A Gift of Time" along with Emmy nominations for Days of our Lives and Mannix, died of natural causes, his daughter-in-law, Sandy Campanella, said.

Campanella received his first Emmy Award nomination for playing private eye Joe Mannix's boss on the first season of the 1967-75 CBS series Mannix. His character's name, Lew Wickersham, was a sly reference to then-McA head Lew Wasserman and Lankershim Boulevard, an entryway to Universal Studios.

However, Intertect, the heartless crime-fighting corporation that Wickersham headed, was written out after the first season as Mannix (Mike Connors) went out on his own, and Campanella's contract was not renewed.

The actor also appeared in the recurring role of Ed Cooper, the ex-husband and father on CBS' One Day at a Time,

Dynasty's Nicollette Sheridan Previews Alexis Carrington's Splashy Return: 'Dear God, Nobody's Safe!' (Video)

“Sorry I’m late. Traffic was a bitch.”

Those seven words, spoken in the final moments of last week’s Dynasty, introduced viewers to the new Alexis Carrington, now played by Nicollette Sheridan. And she’s only begun to steal the show.

“She is a force to be reckoned with,” Sheridan tells TVLine of the iconic character, played by Joan Collins during Dynasty‘s original run (1981–1989). “Dear God, nobody’s safe! She annihilates common boundaries of decency to obtain what she needs. She’s this matriarch of a family that’s cutthroat, crippling and riddled with dirty politics. It’s great television.

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: George, Cristina and Izzie Return

'Grey's Anatomy' Recap: George, Cristina and Izzie Return
"It seems like five seconds ago we were the interns hiding in the tunnels." - Alex Karev

Three hundred episodes. Take a moment and let that sink in. Three hundred episodes. Few American dramas have achieved that. Dallas, Knots Landing, CSI, NCIS, and ER (whose 331 episodes over 15 seasons now seem within reach) come to mind. But with its 300th episode, "Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story?," Grey's Anatomy enters a very elite club. Even better? This milestone hour was a nostalgic tribute to the characters whose stories inspired countless people to pursue medicine, saved many real lives because someone saw that condition on the show, and changed the landscape of network television forever.

30 Reasons You Shouldn't Apologize For Having a Crush on Alec Baldwin

30 Reasons You Shouldn't Apologize For Having a Crush on Alec Baldwin
Why do you think the characters in Clueless called hot guys "Baldwins"? Back in the '80s and '90s, Alec and his brothers were the equivalent of today's Hemsworths when it came to serving up sexiness as a family. But Alec . . . oh, Alec. That strong jaw. The dark hair. Those piercing blue eyes that could just cut right through you. On shows like Knots Landing and films like Malice, The Hunt For Red October, Glengarry Glen Ross, and even Beetlejuice, Alec Baldwin was it. I refuse to sit here and pretend that he doesn't give off "daddy" vibes and that I don't still find him attractive (when he's not dressed up as Donald Trump or voicing a cartoon baby) - because, yes, his hair may be a shimmery shade of gray now, but those baby blues can still stare right into your soul.
