Sad news over the weekend...
Actor Bill Daily, the jocular sidekick to Larry Hagman on I Dream of Jeannie and later the star of a short-lived series of his own, has died. He passed at age 91.
Daily was on all five years of the I Dream of Jeannie sitcom, playing the supportive friend to Jeannie (and genie) master Hagman.
He later was a neighbor of Bob Newhart on The Bob Newhart Show, playing pilot Howard Borden, and then appeared as Dr. Larry Dykstra, a psychiatrist on ALF. He also appeared on the TV shows Bewitched, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Love American Style, Aloha, Paradise, and Starting from Scratch.
He was great on I Dream of Jeannie and The Bob Newhart Show..always fun to watch.
He will be missed.
