Gammon's first television credits were in the 1960s in westerns such as "The Wild, Wild West," "Bonanza" and "Gunsmoke" — though he also showed up on "Batman," "Charlie's Angels" and "Grey's Anatomy." Gammon worked a lot and you know his face, as the father in "Nash Bridges," the manager in "Major League" and in dozens of other film and TV roles. In Los Angeles, he co-founded the MET Theatre (when it was on Poinsettia Place) and received several Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Awards for acting and directing, the L.A Times obituary says. Gammon died of cancer in Costa Mesa.
