Darren McGavin Dies

dmcgavin.jpgThis weekend, bad news came in twos. Hot on the heels of finding out about the death of Don Knotts, MSNBC is reporting that Darren McGavin has also died. He was 83.

McGavin died of natural causes at an LA hospital on Saturday.

The veteran actor starred and guest-starred in countless TV shows, including "Kolchak: The Night Stalker" and "Mike Hammer." He also starred in films including "The Natural," "Billy Madison," "The Natural" and "The Man with the Golden Arm." He was probably best known (and loved) for his role as the dad in love with a leg lamp in 1983's "A Chistmas Story."

In 1990, McGavin received his one and only Emmy -- for a guest stint on "Murphy Brown." He is survived by four children. -- Rachel Cericola
