Memorial Hallway / Former BSG guest star John Heard passes away
« Last post by Anne on July 23, 2017, 03:04:26 AM »
Actor John Heard, who guest starred on the rebooted Battlestar Galactica TV series, died on July 21st, 2017, at the age of 71.  He was found dead in a Palo Alto, CA hotel room where, according to media reports, he was recovering from back surgery.

The Washington, DC native appeared in many TV series/films, theatrical films, and stage plays.  While best known for playing Peter McCallister, Kevin's father, in the 1990 comedy film "Home Alone" (and its 1992 sequel), Heard became known to BSG fans for playing Commander Barry Garner, the third CO of Battlestar Pegasus, in the episode "The Captain's Hand" (Season 2.5).

Heard's extensive film resume included roles in "Big," "Beaches," "The Pelican Brief," and the Denzel Washington-directed "The Great Debaters."  On the small screen, Heard appeared in such shows as Miami Vice, The Sopranos, Prison Break, and the CBS reboot of MacGyver along with the first "Sharknado" TV movie (in 2013).

John Heard was proceeded in death by a brother, Matthew, in 1995, and is survived by three children.

So Say We All. RIP Richard Hatch. Responder crew and Marines stand ready to render Honors.
Actor Richard Hatch, who appeared in both TV incarnations of Battlestar Galatica, died on February 7th after a battle with pancreatic cancer.  He was 71.

A native of Santa Monica, California, Hatch first gained attention in 1970, in the daytime soap opera All My Children.  His first major TV role was in 1976, as Inspector Dan Robbins in the final season of The Streets of San Francisco, replacing Michael Douglas.

Hatch's role of Captain Apollo in Glen A. Larson's Battlestar Galactica only lasted one season (1978), but garnered a Golden Globe award nomination in 1979.  In the 1990s, he tried to convince Universal Studios to revive the series as a followup to the original (ignoring Galactica 1980), but failed.  He would later play terrorist-turned-politician Tom Zarek, a recurring character, in the rebooted series helmed by Ronald D. Moore.

Along with BSG, Hatch appeared in a number of other s-f projects including the Steampunk short film "Cowboys & Engines" with Malcolm McDowell & Walter Koenig, and the controversial Star Trek fan film short "Prelude to Axanar."

Ron Moore & Edward James Olmos took to Twitter to offer condolences on Richard Hatch's passing.  Moore called Hatch's death "a heavy blow to the entire BSG family."  Olmos paid tribute, tweeting, "you made our universe a better place.  We love you for it.  Rest In Peace my friend @SoSayWeAll the Admiral!"
