I’ve got some good news for people who hate M*A*S*H, and some bad-to-moderately-interesting news for the rest of us. Harry Morgan, the actor who played Colonel Potter (not Dexter‘s dad), has died at age 96. Considering I thought he was about 85 when the show originally aired, I’m really surprised to find out he was still alive. Good for him (up until today).

Aside from M*A*S*H, Morgan also starred in films such as To the Shores of Tripoli and High Noon. And some people might remember him as Officer Bill Gannon from, Dragnet. Of course those people are really old, and don’t know how to use the Internet, so I'm not sure why I bothered to type that.

At any rate, our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, who are, no doubt, avid Screen Junkies readers.

R.I.P.

Before the recent, boring Superman movie, and the new Superman movie that Zack Snyder‘s gonna botch somehow, there was the classic 70s and 80s Superman quadrilogy. Actor/director Jackie Cooper will likely be best-known for playing Daily Planet Editor Perry White in all four Christopher Reeve outings. Cooper’s White is a graying, fast-talking man who says words like “rinky-dink,” because newspaper editors are great like that.

Cooper started out as child actor. He was the youngest person ever nominated for a “Best Actor” Oscar at age 9. He was also a cast member in the Our Gang shorts, which were a lot like The Little Rascals shorts, in that they were the exact same thing. Unlike many child actors, Cooper didn’t go crazy. Instead, he took the other accepted child actor route and because a director. Cooper directed episodes of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” “Magnum, P.I.,” and many more shows, including “MASH,” which he won an Emmy for.

At the age of 88, Cooper died Tuesday in Beverly Hills. (Variety)
