John Forsythe R.I.P.

Made some great movies like "In Cold Blood", but was definitely one of TV's greatest actors. Lived a nice long life.

LOS ANGELES John Forsythe, the handsome, smooth-voiced actor who made his fortune as the scheming oil tycoon in TV's "Dynasty" and the voice of the leader of "Charlie's Angels" has died after a yearlong battle with cancer. He was 92.

Forsythe died late Thursday at his home in Santa Ynez from complications of pneumonia, publicist Harlan Boll said Friday.

"He died as he lived his life, with dignity and grace," daughter Brooke Forsythe said.

I thought it was the guy from Deuce Bigelow and The Rock, William Forsythe.

92 years was a good run though.

According to IMDB he has been working since 1943, that is a pretty good run!
