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.
