DALLAS Actor Jared Martin Dies @ 75 Comments (0)

Jared-MartinJared Martin: December 21, 1941—May 24, 2017 

Via The Hollywood Reporter: Jared Martin, the actor best known as sexy “Dusty Farlow” on Dallas (1979-1982, 1985, 1991) who was the son of New Yorker illustrator Charles E. Martin (1910-1995), has died of pancreatic cancer. He was 75.

Martin got his start as the roommate of future A-list director Brian De Palma, who cast him as an insane killer in his first movie, Murder a la Mod (1968), and also his third, The Wedding Party (1969).

The actor has a strong sci-fi following thanks to his stints on the series The Fantastic Journey (1977) and War of the Worlds (1988-1990), and also the classic movie Westworld (1973). He appeared with Pia Zadora in The Lonely Lady (1983), one of the worst films ever made, in a good way.

After retiring from acting, Martin took up photography, directed and co-founded Big Picture Alliance, a program that taught filmmaking to inner-city children.

He is survived by his wife, his son and two grandkids.

The socialite actress Dina Merrill died this week after battling dementia. She was 93.

Her second husband was the movie actor Cliff Robertson, an Oscar winner who died at 88 in 2011, and who suffered a major career setback in the 1970s for an unbelivable reason — he realized his agent had stolen $10,000 due to him, and he pointed it out.

That's it.

Check out this thrillingly well-written and blunt piece from 2011 by David Thomson, who summarized Robertson's appeal, his lack of appeal and why being right wasn't enough.

His family must be bracing for the worst.
