He was a great actor. He starred in a pilot I did almost 30 years ago. Consummate pro. I was too young to appreciate the kindness he was doing me. RIP

I also recall him from a couple Barney Miller episodes. Had a great role as a producer of a play trying to settle a dispute between the writer and an actor. “And you! Actor! The man wrote you a nice play.

He had the b & b files. I like how your dad dismissed him by the tone of his voice when he said, “You’re a real crusader.”
