Kevin McCarthy dead at 96

Kevin McCarthy, an ubiquitous character actor whom all of us have seen in many television and film productions made during the past sixty years, passed away on Saturday, September 11. He was 96.

McCarthy appeared in over 200 movies and television episodes, not to mention numerous commercials for Twix candy bars and "Weird Al" music videos, but he was best known for his role in the original "Invasion of the Body Snatchers". Whether he was portraying a cowboy, a greedy television executive, a police detective, or a doctor, his presence was always one that viewers welcomed and enjoyed.
