Some sad news this morning coming from Hollywood. The wonderful and talented James Garner has passed away.
Garner was most famous for his role on television’s The Rockford Files, which ran from 1974-1980. He won his first Emmy for his performance.
Garner was also notable for his work on Maverick, The Great Escape, Promise (for which he would win a second Emmy), Space Cowboys, The Notebook, and Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire.
No cause of death has been released, though there may be some connection to the stroke he suffered back in 2008.
