RIP MARTIN MILNER 1931-2015

An iconic TV star has passed away.

Martin Milner, best known for his role a Pete Malloy on the TV shoe Adam 12 has died at the age of 83. Milner also starred in the series Route 66 for four year before hitting it really big with the aforementioned Jack Webb production.

Milner's career spanned over 50 years and I remember him from such classic Tv shows as Twilight Zone in the episode entitled "Mirror Image" opposite Vera Miles. He also made a few movies, and the ones that come to mind are "Sex Kittens Go To College", "Private Lives Of Adam And Eve" "13 Ghosts" and "Sweet Smell Of Success".

Milner has been cited as the reason many people joined the police force. They were inspired by his persona on the show Adam 12. Milner had been the co-host of a radio talk show about fly fishing called "Let's Talk Hookup" since 1993. He will be missed.
