Kahless, the Unforgettable

Veteran film, television, and stage actor Kevin Conway has died. Confirmed by his publicists, the actor died Wednesday of a heart attack at 77. Conway got his start in acting at 24, appearing in off-Broadway stage hits like One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, The Elephant Man, and when You Comin' Back, Red Ryder? His first major film role cam in Slaughterhouse-Five, a 1972 movie based on a novel of the same name by Kurt Vonnegut.

His other movie roles include Funny Farm, Invincible, Thirteen Days, Gettsyburg, and Gods and Generals. Genre fans might recognize him for his guest role as a clone of Kahless the Unforgettable in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Seem to be losing a lot of them lately. I'm braced for Shatner, that one's gonna hit hard.

I just watched "Rightful Heir" yesterday. The losses are mounting :(

It is getting to that point everyone is getting up there in age. Even Patrick Stewart too.

Shatner living this long is actually surprising.

Father Time is undefeated. Though he seems to be struggling with Betty White.

I have it on good authority that Betty White is a robot.
