Magnum P.I. information

James Garner RIPTelevision legend James Garner has died at the age of 86. He reportedly passed away late last night.

Garner began his career with a non-speaking role in The Caine Mutiny Court Martial on Broadway after helping actor Lloyd Nolan learn his lines. He then landed a regular role in the touring production.

From there, he moved on to small roles in movies and television. While he found success starring in more than 50 films over the course of his career — including The Thrill of It All, The Americanization of Emily, Victor/Victoria, Murphy’s Romance, Support Your Local Sheriff!, and The Notebook — Garner really made his mark on the small screen.

Dan Miller and Nora O'BrienSeveral veterans of cancelled television shows left us in April. Some worked in front of the cameras while others worked behind the scenes. Either way, they contributed to the medium in significant ways. Those that have passed away include Thomas Braden (Eight Is Enough, Crossfire), Dan Miller (The Pat Sajak Show, Miller & Company), Wendy Blair (Three's Company, The Ropers, Three's A Crowd, What A Country, and I Married Dora), Jim Hutchison (Hawaii Five-0, Magnum P.I., and Jake And The Fatman), Marilyn Cooper (Alice, Kate And Allie, Cheers, Law & Order, The Nanny, and Caroline In The City), Kim Weiskopf (One Day At A Time, The Jeffersons, Good Times, What's Happening Now!!, Full House, and Married With Children), Bea Arthur (Maude, The Golden Girls), and Nora O'Brien (Stargate SG-1, Stargate Atlantis, Kings, The Philanthropist, Parenthood, and Bionic Woman). Here are the details... Thomas Braden passed away on April 3rd. He was 92 years old and died of natural causes at his home in Denver. Braden worked for the CIA until 1954 and then bought a newspaper in Oceanside, CA. He wrote a regular column about his life at home with a wife and eight children. Those columns were later collected in book form and became the basis of ABC's Eight is Enough TV series. He returned to Washington, DC in the 1960s and helped create a political debate radio show. In 1982, he helped to launch CNN's political debate series, Crossfire, with Pat Buchanan. He stayed with the program until 1991 and the show ended in 2005. Braden's wife, Joan, had a varied career that included magazine writer, TV interviewer, public relations officer, and aide to both John F. Kennedy and Nelson A. Rockefeller. She died in 1999. Braden is survived by seven children (Thomas Jr. died in 1999) and numerous grandchildren.

Magnum P.I.

Private investigator Thomas Sullivan Magnum IV (Tom Selleck) is a former U.S. Navy Seal and Vietnam veteran who lives in Hawaii. He lives in the guesthouse of the estate owned by popular-but-never-seen author Robin Masters. Robin's estate is run by uptight Jonathan Quayle Higgins III (John Hillerman) who is often at odds with Magnum and, who Magnum suspects is actually his unseen benefactor. Driving Robin's Ferrari 308 GTS, Magnum lives the life of luxury and takes on cases as the mood strikes him. He's sometimes aided by his war buddies; helicopter pilot Theodore "T.C." Calvin (Roger E. Mosley) and club manager Orville Wilbur Richard "Rick" Wright (Larry Manetti).
