James MacArthur has died, at 72, in Florida.


Besides being the orignal Danno, my fondest memories of his work are The Swiss Family Robinson, Kidnapped, and Battle of the Bulge.  He was also well regarded in Theater.  Within the last few years, I recognized a subtlety in his Danno character; I came to realize that Danno respected McGarrett, but despised him and wanted his job.  Very nuanced actin by MacArthur to pull it off.

I have learned that some pain cannot be healed, but must be endured. I believe our Higher Power will help us to endure and find peace. I loved the boy with the utmost love of which my soul is capable and he is taken from me-yet in the agony of my spirit in surrendering such a treasure, I feel a thousand times richer than if I had never possessed it."
-- William Wordsworth 1812

His family said he had just agreed to appear in an upcoming episode of the new Hawaii 5-0.

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