.....no cause revealed......'The Mary Tyler Moore Show'......'The Love Boat'.......


Gavin MacLeod, Mary Tyler Moore and Love Boat Actor, Dead at 90

.....Veteran actor Gavin MacLeod, who starred in lead roles in The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Love Boat, has passed away. He was 90.

MacLeod died early Saturday morning in the company of his loved ones and caretakers, his nephew Mark See told TMZ. The actor had been in and out of the hospital for months with varying illnesses, but an official cause of death has not been reported.

Perhaps best known for playing Murray Slaughter on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, MacLeod played the head writer of the fictional TV station that Mary Richards worked at. He appeared in all 168 episodes over seven seasons.

On The Love Boat, MacLeod spent a decade playing Captain Merrill Stubing in a total of 250 episodes, including its accompanying TV movies and one episode of the 1998 revival series, Love Boat: The Next Wave. These two career highlights landed him a total of five Golden Globe nominations.......



RIP........love....exciting and new.......come aboard......?!

He was so associated with those two roles, it was jarring to see him playing roles far removed from that character type, such as a tank driver in Kelly's Heros.

RIP

He was great in Kelly's Heroes as a foil to Donald Sutherland. Great movie.

Add Siegfried from Get Smart to that list, at least for me. This role predated either of those others.

Thinking about the wrong guy. Sorry about that, Chief.

He also played Ernest Hunkle in "Operation Petticoat" (1959), one of my favorite movies.
