RIP Kevin McCarthy (2/15/1914 - 9/11/2010)

I'm deeply saddened to report that Kevin McCarthy, star of my all-time favorite Twilight Zone episode "Long Live Walter Jameson," passed away yesterday at the age of 94. Here's the NW Times article. Mr. McCarthy is best known for his starring role in the original Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956).

I was very fortunate, some years back, to acquire a personalized autograph from Mr. McCarthy through my good friend Bill Huelbig, who met Mr. McCarthy in person and thought of me.

Rest in peace, good sir.
