    "Uncle Frank" from Jimmy Kimmel died today at 77. His full name was Frank Potenza, and he really was Jimmy's uncle.
    I always liked him.

    Treme's "Captain John Guidry" - Actor Michael Showers (aka John Showers)

    Body pulled from river that of 'Treme' actor

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Police on Thursday began searching for the car belonging to actor John Showers. The body of the actor in the HBO series Treme was pulled from the Mississippi River on Wednesday after it was spotted by the captain of the riverboat Natchez.

    Showers played a police officer on the cable drama.

    His work also includes "The Vampire Diaries," ''Traffic," and the coming film, "Colombiana."

    A St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's spokesman says the 44-year-old man lived in Chalmette with his girlfriend. He said she reported him missing Tuesday after he didn't return from a night out with a friend in the French Quarter.

    The woman told police that Showers suffered from severe depression and was diagnosed in March with multiple sclerosis.

    RIP, you will be sorely missed.
    I had to comment on this one. I had the pleasure to meet Ashford and Simpson a couple of times and I must say they were the sweetest, warmest people one could meet. Add to that the fact that the music they wrote and performed was legendary. May Mr. Ashford rest in peace and may his family, especially Valerie and their two girls, find comfort during this time.

    Glad to hear that, KeepitReal.
    I always got the feeling that he and Valerie were warm, down to earth people.
    I'm pleased you could report that to us. Thank you

    A versatile actor has passed away: Cliff Robertson, dead at 88 (the day after his 88th birthday). Ironically, PT109 has been playing all weekend.

    Wow, I had no idea he was that old.
    He was such a terrific actor and what a good looking man he was, too.
    RIP

    Aw, I'm sorry to hear about Cliff Robertson. Rest in peace, Big Kahuna.
