Character actor David Dukes, 55, collapsed and died of a heart attack on Monday while filming the Stephen King miniseries "Rose Red" near Tacoma, Wash., said his wife, Carol Muske-Dukes. Dukes, who had an impressive New York stage career (in 1979 he had starred with Richard Gere in the original Broadway production of "Bent"), was best known to younger viewers as Mr. McPhee on the WB's "Dawson's Creek." His other major TV credits include 1983's "The Winds of War" and its 1989 sequel, "War and Remembrance."
