We were forced to say goodbye to several veterans of the TV shows from the past. Some are well known to the public and some are not. Either way, the medium of television wouldn’t be the same without their contributions.
Ron Silver, 62, passed away on March 15th after a two-year battle with esophageal cancer. A veteran of many movies (Reversal of Fortune) and Broadway plays (Speed the Plow), television audiences know the talented actor from Chicago Hope, Law & Order, Crossing Jordan, and The West Wing. One of his earlier roles in the medium was playing the boyfriend and neighbor of Brenda (Julie Kavner) on the Rhoda sitcom. Silver was also the co-founder of an entertainment industry advocacy group, Creative Coalition.
