@doglover52 - Thanks for posting about Richard Hatch! I didn't know him so much from TV, but from his fight against cancer .. which went many, many years. He became macrobiotic, and was in remission for a long time. When my Mom was diagnosed, she too tried a macrobiotic diet .. so we heard about Hatch's success. It's sad to hear that his cancer returned. Smiley Sad

Miguel Ferrer died yesterday at age 61 of throat cancer. His best known TV roles were:

"Dr.Garret Macy" in "Crossing Jordan' '01-'07 co starred with Jill Hennessey

"Owen Granger" on "NCIS:Los Angeles"

His parents were late singer,Rosemary Clooney,actor Jose Ferrer. His cousin is George Clooney


Hearing of this really got to me more than I would have expected, but he was one of those "Hollywood" people where I felt a personal connection.  

 

When I was a teenager my favorite relative paid a visit.  At the time he was the city attorney for Santa Monica, CA and he always had wonderful stories about the people I read about in the movie magazines.  Rosemary Clooney and Jose Ferrer lived across the street and they often played bridge together.  On this particular visit he told about the baby they just had.  He was able to see the baby for the first time and take a gift just before he left for his visit home to GA.  

He always talked of his friendship with them as something so special that I didn't understand at the time.  It was only later that I realized that these were two of the few people who accepted him and his Native American "houseboy" as the couple they truly were.  Any time I've seen Miguel Ferrer on TV I've thought about my cousin telling me about that beautiful baby.  I recently saw him on an episode of "NCIS LA" and thought he looked very sick, which made me wonder.


A great story.  Thanks for sharing it!
