Chad Everett, who died at home in LA of lung cancer at 75, began getting guest stints in TV series in 1961 and probably became best known as Dr. Gannon on "Medical Center" in the 1970s. He was under contract at MGM for awhile, and appeared in films such as "Airplane II: The Sequel" and the 1998 remake of "Psycho." For many, Everett played it just right during the scene of Betty's audition in David Lynch's "Mulholland Drive" in 2001. That was the scene where, if you didn't know by then that Naomi Watts was the real deal, you probably became a believer.
Sherman Hemsley exploded into television stardom when Norman Lear cast him in the early 1970s hit "All in the Family" as lovable bigot Archie Bunker's black neighbor, George Jefferson. Hemsley then starred in the long-running spinoff, "The Jefferson's." His television career spanned four decades in all. Helmsley was found dead Tuesday at his home in El Paso. He was 74.
