James Whitmore, RIP

James Whitmore, US Marine Corps veteran and noted character actor in movies, television and the theater, passed away last Friday. He had a good feel for any role he played and truly loved acting.

He won an Emmy and a Tony and acted in one-man shows (even being nominated for an Academy Award for the film version of his show about Harry Truman), but for me his best role was an early, as the tough police sergeant in the 1954 science fiction movie Them!

He was 87.
