Eugene Roche

Eugene Roche, a wonderful character actor who enlivened so many TV shows in guest roles, has died at age 75. Mark Evanier has a good post about him. My favorite of Roche's many guest appearances was probably his role in three episodes of Night Court as Christine's father. He was also one of the actors considered for the role of Mr. Carlson on WKRP in Cincinnati (it was between him and Gordon Jump, and Jump got it).
