DEATH OBITUARY : Don Gordon, Top-Notch Character Actor and Pal of Steve McQueen, Dies at 90

One of our favorite character actors, Don Gordon has died. If you haven't seen his work as Jim Brown's partner-in-vengeance in SLAUGHTER than you have missed one of the great sidekick roles.

The Emmy nominee played the cop Delgetti in 'Bullitt' and an inmate in 'Papillon' and appeared twice on 'The Twilight Zone.'
Don Gordon, the busy character who appeared opposite his buddy Steve McQueen in Bullitt, Papillon and The Towering Inferno, has died. He was 90.

A specialist in playing tough, hard-nosed characters, Gordon died April 24 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, his wife of 37 years, Denise, told The Hollywood Reporter. He was diagnosed with cancer just five days before his death, she said.

People are paying tribute on social media.



T.E. Grimm Probably the only other actor I can say with confidence is just as recognizable was the late Geoffrey Lewis

T.E. Grimm One of my favorite all time actors. Always recognizable and excellent.

Steve Langley I just love "the four of us are dying". I relish the musical score and it was broadcast 1/1/1960- foreshadowing the decade 1960s

Gilda Agostinone He was wonderful in his TZ episodes; very versatile, natural & believable. May he rest in peace..

Michael Figueroa He was really good as the right hand man in "The Final Conflict", aka The Omen 3. RIP Gordon.
