Veterans of Cancelled TV Shows That We Lost in February 2009

March 2, 2009
We lost a large number of TV show veterans in January 2009 but, thankfully, far fewer left us in February. The talented TV-related folks that left us in February include James Whitmore, One Life to Live's Phil Carey (All in the Family, Little House on the Prairie, The Bionic Woman, and Gunsmoke), Blossom Dearie (The Today Show and Schoolhouse Rock!), and Ed Cotter (Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, Dear John, and Family Matters). James Whitmore, 87, died on February 6th at his Malibu, CA home. The actor was diagnosed with lung cancer in November 2008. Whitmore had a long list of movie and Broadway credits but also guested on TV shows like The Practice, The White Shadow, Gunsmoke, The Big Valley, and most recently, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation. He was married several times, including to Audra Lindley (Three's Company). Whitmore was also the grandfather of recent Survivor contestant, Matty Whitmore. Phil Carey, 83, passed away on February 6th at his home in New York. The actor had also been battling lung cancer. He was best known for playing business tycoon Asa Buchanan on ABC's One Life to Live soap opera for almost 30 years. A veteran of many movies, Carey also appeared on classic shows like All in the Family, Little House on the Prairie, The Bionic Woman, and Gunsmoke.

Where Are They Now? Some Greenroom Chatter for December 17, 2008

December 17, 2008
One of the most frustrating realities of series television is that sooner or later, our favorite TV shows will likely be cancelled. Fortunately, many of the actors go on to films and other TV shows like Samantha Who?, Nip/Tuck, Fringe, and CSI: NY. Here's where you'll be able to find Brittany Robertson (Swingtown), Florence Henderson (The Brady Bunch), Jessica Collins (Tru Calling), Mark Deklin (The Ex List), Mary Beth Peil (Dawson's Creek), Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls), Alex Herschlag (Will & Grace), Adhir Kalyan (Aliens in America), Adrien Brody (The O.C.), Michael Chiklis (The Shield), Fred Willard (Back to You), Jean Smart (Designing Women), Zach Galifianakis (Tru Calling), Ray Liotta (Smith), Erik Knudsen (Jericho), Craig T. Nelson (Coach), Betty White (Bob, The Golden Girls), Mary Steenburgen (Joan of Arcadia), Michael Mosley (Kidnapped), and Jaleel White (Family Matters). To start, Brittany Robertson (Swingtown) has landed the lead role in an hour pilot for the CW. Light Years is a family dramedy that revolves around a 15-year-old girl (Robertson); a foster kid who tracks down her birth parents who turn out to be a female radio show host and an immature bar owner.
