‘Zeus; Apollo: On Guard’

I rarely note the deaths of ‘Slebs’ or ‘singers’ whom I have never heard of; but I would make an exception this morning when I post on the death of John Hillerman. The surprising choice of a Texan to play the part of a grouchy, pedantic English butler, working as caretaker in a Hawaiian Island estate, who was lumbered with the erratic detective Magnum, played of course by Tom Selleck, made the series; catapulted Selleck into the big time, and furnished a slightly-surprised Texan with a legion of fans, all of whom thought he was British.

 

A really nice guy, and a credit to the acting profession.
