He Made Acting Look Easy

In case you haven’t heard yet, acclaimed film and TV actor James Garner died last night at age 86. I posted a brief, initial obituary in The Rap Sheet early today. And later I uploaded a much longer post--complete with video clips of Garner’s work--in that same blog. Meanwhile, in my art-oriented Killer Covers blog, I recalled the two novels Stuart M. Kaminsky wrote in the 1990s featuring one of Garner’s best-loved protagonists, Los Angeles private investigator Jim Rockford.

Frankly, these are posts I wish I’d never had cause to write. As a longtime fan of Garner’s performances, this is a very sad day.
