Just read this in the Tales of the Gold Monkey thread. Actor Jeff MacKay passed last Friday (Aug.22). He was seen on Magnum, Baa Baa Black Sheep, JAG and numerous other Bellisario shows.

Rest in Peace. Posted Image
Bring back John Doe! Or at least resolve the cliff-hanger with a 2hr movie or as an extra on a dvd release.

So many people I grew up admiring are dying, including my parents. I did enjoy him in Gold Monkey, Baa Baa Black Sheep and all those guest appearances on various shows. Also recently deceased with little recognition is Julius Carry who appeared in an episode of JAG with him, better known as Lord Bowler or Sheriff Sho'nuff.

Wow, too bad! Yeah, I loved MacKay's character in ``Magnum'' as well as his portrayal of Bud's dad on ``JAG'' and I had no idea that Julius Carry had passed away, too...loved, absolutely loved his portrayal of Lord Bowler in ``Brisco County''. RIP to both. Posted Image

I loved his work as Dr Abe Butterfield in Doctor, Doctor with Matt Frewer. A vastly underrated and too-quickly cancelled show (although it ran for nearly 3 years... when you could find it)

I really enjoyed his work on Baa Baa Black Sheep and Magnum PI. My best wishes to his family. I always thought he deserved to be a more featured actor. I thought he would have made a perfect Cliff Clavin on Cheers, perhaps a bit more sympathetic than John R.
TV DVDs wanted: TJ Hooker (seasons 3-5), The Fall Guy (Seasons 2-5), Scarecrow and Mrs. King, Father Dowling Mysteries, Queen of Swords, Smurfs, and Charlemagne (1994 TV miniseries)
