Harry Morgan DiesHarry Morgan Dies, The Emmy-winning actor behind the TV series’ fatherly Colonel Potter passed away at his Los Angeles home.
Harry Morgan, who was best known for his long-running portrayal of the fatherly Colonel Potter on M*A*S*H*, died at his Los Angeles home Wednesday morning at 96 years old. Morgan won an Emmy in 1980 for his performance as the unflappable medic.

A veteran of more than 50 years in films and TV, Morgan starred or co-starred in 11 TV series. He was an appealing Everyman whose calm manner and wry delivery were widely popular. In M*A*S*H*, his steady ways and wry humor tempered the more high-keyed natures of his co-star’s characters, Hawkeye Pierce and B.J. Hunnicutt. He went on to co-star in its spin-off, AfterMASH (1984-85).

His other most recognized role was on the vintage TV series Dragnet (1967-70) where he played Jack Webb’s business-like partner Bill Gannon. He reprised the role of Gannon in the 1987 movie remake, playing as chief of the L.A.P.D.
