Did you see him in this production?
Willard & Mull at their (ignored) best.
I always saw him as the man from from Sister, Sister who played their principal, I think.
I remember him from that episode of Sabrina The Teenage Witch too, and from How High (2001) and WALL-E ( 2008 ); He's been in other things I've seen too but those are what I remember him the best for.
Just amazing being remembered for a single role so many decades ago:
Chariots of Fire/The Lord of the Rings/The Aviator:
Imagine inheriting $600 millon at age 18:

Linda Cristal, Who Starred in ‘High Chaparral,’ Dies at 89
Linda Cristal, the Argentine-born actress who played Victoria Cannon, wife of Leif Erickson’s stoic, heroic rancher Big John Cannon on NBC’s popular 1967-71 Western The High Chaparral, died in her sleep at her Beverly Hills home Saturday. She was 89.
Cristal had built a career as an actress during the 1950s in Mexico’s film industry when she was cast in an English-speaking role in 1956’s Comanche, directed by George Sherman and starring Dana Andrews.
Film and TV credits throughout the late 1950s and early 1960s included roles in Rawhide, Seven Sins, The Alamo, The Tab Hunter Show and Iron Horse, among others. For her performance in Black Edwards’ 1958 comedy The Perfect Furlough, she shared a New Star of the Year Golden Globe Award withÂ Tina Louise and Susan Kohner.
Her highest profile role arrived in 1967 with the hourlong Western The High Chaparral, a series that ran for four seasons and starred, in addition to Erickson and Cristal, Cameron Mitchell, Henry Darrow and Mark Slade.
Subsequent credits include Barnaby Jones, The Love Boat and Fantasy Island. She joined the cast of the soap General Hospital for a year in 1988.
She also played Cleopatra is some horrible film I cannot remember.

He also wrote several books. Using his life as another story plot, he wrote My Anecdotal Life: A Memoir in 2004.
I didn't realize all the things he did:
The Joey Bishop Show/Who Wants to Be A Millionaire/Live With Regis and Kathy Lee:
What an absolutely incredible life:
The China Syndrome/Cocoon/The Natural:
Great scene stealer every single time.
He dated Shirley McClain and Jackie O:
First Ian Holm (see above) now Ben Cross from 'Chariots of Fire':
The Avengers/On Her Majesty's Secret Service:/Game of Thrones:
An excellent actress, as the old guard passes few step in to fill the gap.
Here's the in Memoriam segment from last weekend's Emmy's. Quite good, they included some people I thought they night have left out:
While sad, this is the most precious segment of the Emmys and Oscars.
Thank you all for spinning the dreams and hopes of our common human experience. RIP, you will be remembered.

And a real Action Gal too!

Wolfdog who became popular during
'Game of Thrones' final season dies at 13
A furry "Game of Thrones" star from Southwest Florida has died.
Yuki was diagnosed three years ago with hemangiosarcoma, a blood cancer
Yuki (YOO-kye), 13, did not show for his medicine during morning rounds Thursday, the sanctuary reported. When workers entered his enclosure, they found that he had died. . .
A 2018 DNA test confirmed that Yuki is 87.5 percent gray wolf, 8.6 percent Siberian husky and 3.9 percent German shepherd.
Yuki was abandoned at eight months old by his original owners living on Florida’s east coast, ending up in a Florida high-kill shelter. A shelter employee told Shy Wolf about him, and Yuki moved to Shy Wolf in 2007.
That farm where beloved canines go
just got a big one.
What a coincidence! I’m listening to a book where the character has a wolf dog. Wolfe Island by Lucy Treloar.
(It’s an island which is slowly being overtaken by the sea in Chesapeake Bay).
