David McCallum, NCIS‘ Beloved ‘Ducky,’ Dead at 90

....David McCallum, who played Donald “Ducky” Mallard on NCIS for more than two decades, died Monday morning in New York. He was 90.

McCallum — who most recently appeared, remotely, in the final two episodes of NCIS‘ 20th season last spring — passed away at New York Presbyterian Hospital of natural causes.

“For over 20 years, David McCallum endeared himself to audiences around the world playing the wise, quirky, and sometimes enigmatic, Dr. Donald ‘Ducky’ Mallard,” said NCIS‘ current exec producers, Seven D. Binder and David North, in a statement. “But as much as his fans may have loved him, those who worked side by side with David loved him that much more. He was a scholar and a gentleman, always gracious, a consummate professional, and never one to pass up a joke. From day one, it was an honor to work with him and he never let us down. He was, quite simply, a legend. He was also family and will be deeply missed.”....



.................RIP.........................?!

One of The Men From U.N.C.L.E.

"... David McCallum as Russian agent Illya Kuryakin drew so much enthusiasm from fans, the agents became a team."

Aw, sad news. Loved him in Man From UNCLE and NCIS. I read somewhere that he took his role as medical examiner very seriously, and oddly, the way he dressed for his Ducky role was uncannily like the way a real life NYC medical examiner dressed, including the bow tie, who testified before a grand jury I was on.

Wow, this saddens me.

I too was a big fan of McCallum in U.N.C.L.E and NCIS.

In U.N.C.L.E, he was understated while Vaughn was over the top, and really not as good of an actor as McCallum.

I loved the show nonetheless, and have the trunk of DVDs to prove it.

He was no less entertaining on NCIS, and did a lot of work to portray the role of M.E. accurately.

I will miss him.


Channel D is closed.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

In The Outer Limits episode The Sixth Finger.

[www.youtube.com]

"Working in a remote Welsh mining town, a rogue scientist, Professor Mathers, discovers a process that affects the speed of evolutionary mutation. Mathers suffers guilt for his role in developing a super-destructive atomic bomb, and hopes his new discovery will better the human race.

A disgruntled miner, Gwyllm Griffiths [McCallum], volunteers for an experiment that will enable the professor to create a being with enhanced mental capabilities. As a man sent forward equal to 20,000 years of evolution, Gwyllm soon begins growing an overdeveloped cortex and a sixth finger on each hand. When the mutation process begins to operate independently of the professor's influence, Gwyllm takes control of the experiment."

In one of the NCIS episodes they showed Ducky as a young man...who we all know should look exactly like Ilya Kuryakin.

He didn't. We got a good chuckle out of that.

In one episode, a doctor who'd never met Ducky asked Gibbs 'What does Ducky look like?'

Gibbs replied 'Illya Kuryakin'.

That cracked me up.

He grinned as he told her, and that cracked me up again.

Now, that's good. And I have no idea who Ducky is because I never watched that show, although I did watch U.N.C.L.E.

I love that kind of wink wink stuff.

He was very good in an episode of Law & Order, as the neighbor of an ex-supermodel who gets murdered.

It just dawned on me where I know him best. He was the Invisible Man in short-lived TV series, 1975. U.N.C.L.E was before my time, but Invisible Man was iconic to 10 year old me. I still remember some of the scenes.

I just ordered one of his albums.

It was heavily sampled in many songs:
