Recommended Posts

LOS ANGELES — James Gammon, the gravel-voiced actor who played the manager of the Cleveland Indians in the 1980s comedy "Major League" and had a host of other movie and TV roles, has died. He was 70.

His agent, Merritt Blake, said Monday that Gammon had cancer and died Friday at his daughter's home in Costa Mesa.

The craggy-faced actor also played the father on the Don Johnson TV show "Nash Bridges."

In addition to dozens of TV and movie appearances, Gammon was a noted stage actor who co-founded the MET Theatre in Los Angeles. Gammon starred in several Sam Shepherd plays, receiving a Tony nomination for his work on a 1996 Broadway production of "Buried Child."

Gammon is survived by his wife, a brother and sister, two daughters and two grandchildren.

RIP to the best manager the Indians ever had.

Lou Brown: I've had it with this nickel and dime stuff! I want that b*tch on the phone!

Rachel Phelps: [enters the locker room] You wanted to talk to the b*tch?

Lou Brown: Yes!

Rachel Phelps: Don't you think you oughta cover yourself up with a towel first, Mr. Brown?

Lou Brown: We're out of towels, and I'm too old to go diving into lockers.

Rachel Phelps: I can take it if you can.

R.I.P.

Rest In Peace, James.
