    Schoolhouse Rock! Singer Jack Sheldon Dies at 88


    Jack Sheldon, a trumpeter, singer, and actor who famously contributed to Schoolhouse Rock!, has passed away at the age of 88. Word of Sheldon's passing was first publicly revealed on Facebook, through a post shared by his biographer and documentarian, Doug McIntyre. The news has since been confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter by Dianne Jimenez, Sheldon's longtime manager.

    Born in 1931, Sheldon began to professionally play music at the age of 13, and grew to become an integral part of the 1950s' West Coast jazz scene. Sheldon's musical talents led to him contributing to quite a lot of television theme songs, including playing trumpet on Peter Gunn and The Munsters, as well as The Sandpiper's "The Shadow of Your Smile".

    On the acting side, Sheldon's filmography included Freaky Friday, Gilligan's Island, Dragnet, and Petticoat Junction. He even briefly had his own sitcom in the 1960s, which was called Run, Buddy, Run.

    Sheldon went on to join Schoolhouse Rock! in its second season, and lent his voice to multiple iconic shorts in the series. These included "I'm Just a Bill", "Conjunction Junction", "Rufus Xavier Sarsaparilla", and "The Tale of Mr. Morton". Sheldon's role in the series was so popular that he went on to parody it on The Simpsons and Family Guy, and even took part in a club tour of Schoolhouse Rock! songs. Outside of that, Sheldon served as the music director and onscreen sidekick for The Merv Griffin Show, a role he held for 18 years.

    Sheldon was also candid about his battles with alcoholism and cancer, as well as the debilitating stroke that he suffered in 2011. After the stroke led to him losing the use of his right arm and hand, Sheldon learned how to replay the trumpet left-handed, and performed onstage again in 2013.

    “Jack is definitely one of a kind. …Los Angeles has a lot of great players, but I don’t know anyone who can do the comedy, the singing, and the playing like Jack,” Clint Eastwood, who was a friend of Sheldon's, said in a 2002 Los Angeles Times profile. “Playing technically well is one thing, but Jack gets a great sound that a lot of players just don’t get.”

    “It’s a haunting trumpet he plays,” Merv Griffin added. “Henry Mancini once told me, ‘If I’ve got a couple making passionate love onscreen and I’m writing the score, it’s Jack Sheldon’s trumpet I want.’”

    Our thoughts are with Sheldon's family, friends, and fans at this time.

    Natalie Trundy, Actress in Four 'Planet of the Apes' Movies,' Dies at 79


    While still in her teens, she starred twice on Broadway and in films with Dean Stockwell and Marlene Dietrich.

    Natalie Trundy, who starred with Dean Stockwell in The Careless Years and appeared in four of the five original Planet of the Apes movies, has died. She was 79.

    Trundy died Dec. 15 in Los Angeles of natural causes, her daughter, Alessandra Sabato, told The Hollywood Reporter.

    Then newly married to Planet of the Apes producer Arthur P. Jacobs, Trundy was cast as the radiation-scarred mutant Albina opposite astronaut James Franciscus in the franchise's first sequel, Beneath the Planet of the Apes (1970).

    The actress then portrayed Dr. Stephanie "Stevie" Branton in Escape From Planet of the Apes (1971) and the chimpanzee Lisa, who winds up marrying Roddy McDowall's Cornelius, in Conquest of the Planet of the Apes (1972) and Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973).

    In June 1973, Jacobs died of a heart attack at age 51 in their Beverly Hills home while Trundy was in Mississippi filming a musical adaptation of Huckleberry Finn (1974), also produced by her husband. She made just one more onscreen appearance, on a 1978 episode of Quincy, M.E.

    Born on Aug. 5, 1940, in Boston, Trundy appeared several times on live television before making her Broadway debut in 1953's A Girl Can Tell. The strawberry blonde then appeared in 1956 with Marlene Dietrich and Vittorio De Sica in The Montecarlo Story and with Shelley Winters on Broadway in Girls of Summer.

    Trundy and Dean Stockwell play headstrong high school teenagers who go to Mexico to elope in The Careless Years (1957), the first feature directed by Arthur Hiller.

    After appearing in the Jimmy Stewart film Mr. Hobbs Takes a Vacation (1962) and on such TV shows as Climax!, Thriller, Bonanza and The Twilight Zone (in the 1963 episode "Valley of the Shadow"), Trundy was struck by a car and spent a year in a back brace.

    The actress had met Jacobs, who was Dietrich's agent, during filming of The Montecarlo Story, and they bumped into each other in London while he was producing Doctor Dolittle (1967). (He would earn a best picture Oscar nomination for his work.) He became her second husband when they wed in London in June 1968.

    Five years earlier, Jacobs, who also had repped Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, Gregory Peck, Richard Burton and others, purchased the rights to Pierre Boulle's novel Monkey Planet, and the first entry in the Planet of the Apes series at 20th Century Fox reached theaters in April 1968.

    Trundy chalked up her roles in the Apes moves to nepotism. She told Jacobs, "I wanna be in [the first sequel], and I was. All of them, from then on!" she said in Tom Weaver's 2003 book, Eye on Science Fiction. "I really did them for fun, if you want to know the truth."

    Trundy later was married to Gucci executive Carmine Roberto Foggia — she had her daughter and son Francesco with him — and volunteered for years at Mother Theresa's hospice in Kolkata, India.

    Netflix Announces The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf


    The world of Netflix's The Witcher is about to get even bigger! Netflix today has announced a new anime film set in the world of the Witcher called The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf. Very few details have been revealed at this point, but the showrunner from the live-action series, Lauren S. Hissrich, is attached.

    In addition to Hissrich, Netflix announced that Beau DeMayo, who penned an episode of the live-action series for Netflix, is also working on the project. As for who, exactly, will animate the film, that's the legendary animation studio Studio Mir. Studio Mir, if you're not familiar, is known for work on The Legend of Korra in addition to Voltron: Legendary Defender for Netflix.

    Here's the logline for the new anime film, according to Netflix: "The world of The Witcher expands in this anime film that explores a powerful new threat facing the Continent."

    What do you think of Netflix's The Witcher? Were you familiar with the books -- or maybe the games -- prior to the show? Let us know in the comments, or hit me up directly on Twitter @rollinbishop to talk all things gaming!

    Here's how Netflix describes the series:

    "Based on the best-selling fantasy series, The Witcher is an epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts. But when destiny hurtles him toward a powerful sorceress, and a young princess with a dangerous secret, the three must learn to navigate the increasingly volatile Continent together."

    The first eight-episode season of Netflix's The Witcher is available to stream on the platform now. It has already been renewed for a second season. Lauren S. Hissrich serves as showrunner. It stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, and Freya Allan as Ciri.

    Dragon Ball Narrator and Voice Actor Brice Armstrong Has Passed Away


    Today, the Dragon Ball community is mourning the loss of one of its own. Reports have gone live which confirm Brice Armstrong, the narrator of Dragon Ball's dub, has passed away. He was 84 years old.

    ComicBook.com can confirm Armstrong passed away on January 10 from natural causes. At this time, there is no word on memorial services for the actor, but fans are paying tribute to Armstrong the best way they know how. If you were to search the actor online, you will see memorials pop up by the second, and they come from fans wanting to thank the actor for bringing Dragon Ball into their lives.

    For those unfamiliar with the actor, Armstrong was the narrator on the Funimation dub of Dragon Ball. He went on to join the cast of Dragon Ball Z where he voiced Captain Ginyu. He would return to the franchise with the fourth Dragon Ball movie as the narrator before playing Lord Slug in Dragon Ball Z: Lord Slug.

    Outside of Dragon Ball, the voice actor played numerous other roles. He worked on the Lupin III franchise as Douglas, Baki the Grappler, Fullmetal Alchemist, Fruits Basket, and Yu Yu Hakusho.

    Over on Facebook, Mary Collins Agency posted a touching memorial to the veteran voice actor. "In the anime and game community, Brice is perhaps best known as the narrator for the original Dragonball series, characters Captain Ginyu and Lord Slug in Dragonball Z, as well as providing voices on Yu Yu Hakusho, Lupin III, Case Closed and many other titles," the company who represented Armstrong, shared with fans.

    "Christopher Sabat, a Mary Collins Agency voice actor and founder of Okratron 5000, worked with and directed Brice often. 'Brice was the kindest, funniest person I’ve ever known. He was always humble, never in a bad mood–not the attitude you’d expect from such an industry legend.'"

    Our thoughts and prayers are with the actor's loved ones. Armstrong is survived by his six children and nine grandchildren. His wife Marianna preceded him in death in 2008.

    Dark Shadows Actor John Karlen Dies At 86

    Actor and Primetime Emmy winner John Karlen, best known for appearing on the original Dark Shadows series and Cagney & Lacey, has passed away. The actor died on Wednesday, January 22 at the age of 86.

    The Dark Shadows News Twitter account first revealed Karlen's passing, writing: "John Karlen was a brilliant, instinctive actor, who thrived in the arena of live TV in a way that few managed. While other performers on #DarkShadows betrayed nervous tics and hurried rehearsal time, John inhabited his characters effortlessly and was simply electric where other actors stumbled and halted, John Karlen simply soared."

    Karlen got his start in television in the 1950s, but gained notoriety for his work on Dark Shadows where he played multiple roles across the 180 episodes in which he appeared. The main role that Karlen filled was that of Willie Loomis, the character that first came into contact with and was under the spell of Barnabas Collins. Karlen went on to appear as three other characters (Carl Collins, Desmond Collins, and Kendrick Young) in the series' many flashbacks.

    The actor went on to appear in countless other television shows including Cagney & Lacey, where he starred in 110 episodes as Harvey Lacey, husband to Tyne Daly's Mary Beth Lacey. Karlen would go on to win the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series Primetime Emmy award for his work on the series. He would also reprise the role in four TV movies that continued the series after its conclusion.

    Karlen notable appeared in bit parts across countless TV shows in his decades-long career with stints on shows like Murder, She Wrote (three times!), Hill Street Blues, Fame, Mad About You, Starsky & Hutch, and The Rockford Files

    He is survived by his son Adam.
