Chad Everett, the classically handsome actor remembered for playing thoracic surgeon Dr. Joe Gannon on the 11969-76 CBS drama Medical Center, died Tuesday at his Los Angeles home, reports the Los Angeles Times.
He was 75 and had battled lung cancer the past year and a half, one of his daughters told the Associated Press.
Though the surgeon's scrubs fit him like a glove, Everett also had TV roles on The Love Boat, Murder, She Wrote, Melrose Place, Cold Case, Supernatural and, most recently, the series Castle. His movies included The Singing Nun, Return of the Gunfighter, Airplane II: The Sequel, Mulholland Drive and the remake of Psycho, as the businessman whose money is stolen by the ill-fated Marion.
