I really didn’t know he had still been alive, but popular character actor Wiliam Windom died Saturday at the age of 88.
He played many roles on both the big screen and small screen. His first role was as Mr. Gilmer, the prosecutor in To Kill A Mockingbird. On TV, he starred in The Farmer’s Daughter and My World and Welcome To It, which was based on the writings of James Thurber. One of his most popular roles was that of Commodore Matthew Decker in the Star Trek episode “The Doomsday Machine.” He also had a recurring role on Murder, She Wrote as Dr. Seth Hazlitt.
