Sorry, Charlie

I am sorry to hear that television, film, and stage actor John Forsythe died yesterday at age 92. The suave, silver-haired Forsythe is probably best remembered for his starring roles in Bachelor Father and Dynasty. But as many Rap Sheet readers would undoubtedly note, Forsythe also provided the voice of unseen private-eye agency chief Charlie Townsend on the 1970s series Charlie’s Angels. You can hear his voice in the introduction to that show, available here.
