    Another celebrity passing - original "Danno" on Hawaii Five -O

    James MacArthur, 'Hawaii Five-0' actor, dies | EW.com

    James MacArthur, the actor who played Danno in the original Hawaii Five-0, passed away this morning, according to a Paramount rep. The actor — the son of screenwriter Charles MacArthur and actress Helen Hayes — was 72 years old; no cause of death was given.

    Along with his 11-year stint playing Detective Dan Williams in Hawaii Five-0, MacArthur appeared in films like 1960′s Swiss Family Robinson, and 1965′s The Battle of the Bulge. The actor also appeared on Broadway in Invitation to a March. Other films on his resume include: 1965′s The Truth About Spring, 1963′s Cry of Battle, 1963′s Spencer’s Mountain, and 1962′s The Interns.

    Actress Marion Ross (Happy Days) said in a statement, “After swooning over him in Swiss Family Robinson, I got to have a date with him on Hawaii Five-0 and toured the country with him in [the play] Arsenic and Old Lace, which was a joy.”

    Peter Lenkov, the executive producer of CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 remake, sent regards to MacArthur’s family. “We’ve lost a special part of our heritage today,” Lenkov said in a statement to EW. “James’ talents and memorable role helped bring this series to life and his support of our remake meant the world to us. The phrase ‘Book ‘em Danno’ will forever be testimony to an actor and character that will not be forgotten. The thoughts and prayers of everyone here at Hawaii Five-0 go out to his family, his friends, and his many, many fans around the world.”

    Her father has/had Canadian citizenship which means she does also. (In Canada, if your parents are Canadian, you are too, regardless of whether you were born in Canada yourself.)

    That probably means Evi can sponsor Randy, and they both can stay in Canada legally for as long as they want.

    Former 'Partridge Family' star David Cassidy charged with DUI | cincinnati.com | Cincinnati.Com

    FORT PIERCE, Fla. Former "Partridge Family" heartthrob David Cassidy has been charged with driving under the influence in Florida.

    The Florida Highway Patrol says his car was stopped around 6 p.m. Wednesday for weaving and nearly causing an accident.

    Cassidy told a trooper that he had a glass of wine at lunch and a hydrocodone pill at 3:30 p.m. Troopers reported finding a half-empty bottle of bourbon in the back seat.

    The FHP says Cassidy failed a field sobriety test and two breath tests. Cassidy posted $350 bail and was released from jail early Thursday.

    His spokeswoman, Jo-Ann Geffen, told TMZ he admits taking a pain pill and being tired from attending a funeral, but insists he was not drunk. She did not immediately return an e-mail from The Associated Press.
    Nope, he wasn't drunk.

    You always know when they're denying a divorce to the press that it's coming any day!

    It was confirmed today. Apparently, he has been texting a friend of hers for about a year. This marriage made it 3 years. Her previous marriage made it 2 years. See? Looks don't really mean a thing!

    I would call the death knell to their relationship at her getting a tattoo of his name in her body.
