I get tickled every time someone says celebrity deaths come in threes. It's just an old wives tale, but it lives on longer than the celebrities, lol.

“Lady Gaga, Justin Bieber and Johnny Depp were among the top 10 celebrity “deaths” Googled by Australians - even though all are very much alive.”

RIP Kevin McCarthy, the man who got me interested in SciFi, just after he scared the bejeezus out of me.

Kevin McCarthy was a terrific actor. Although his leading man days didn’t last, he had a long career as a character actor.

Third straight year a “Golden Girl” passed away, if I were Betty White, I’d really be worried.

I recall an episode of Twilight Zone in which he played a college professor who taught history , and was particularly knowledgeable about the Civil War . He was in love with a younger woman whose father was suspicious of him . The father discovers that he ( McCarthy ) was actually an officer in the Cival War and never aged . In the end I think the father shot him and while he was dying he withered away into a 100+ year old man .

I remember that Twilight Zone episode featuring Kevin McCarthy. McCarthy admitted to the girl’s father that he, McCarthy, was old enough to have known Plato personally!
The girl’s father saw a picture of McCarthy in his Union Civil War officer’s uniform.

Also, it wasn’t the father who shot McCarthy....it was one of McCarthy’s former wives, who was a very elderly woman. After being shot, McCarthy rapidly ages as he lays on the floor dying, and eventually turns to dust.

I don’t recall ever seeing that episode. Now, I’ll have to stay home, New Year’s Eve, and watch the Sci Fi Channel’s T-Zone marathon.
