MORE INFO ON JAMES DALY: James Firman Daly (October 23, 1918–July 3, 1978) was an American theater, film and television actor, who is perhaps best known for his role as Dr. Paul Lochner in the hospital drama series Medical Center, in which he played Chad Everett's superior.

Daly was born in Wisconsin Rapids in Wood County in central Wisconsin, to a working-class family: his mother, Dorothy Ethelbert (Hogan) Mullen, later worked for the Central Intelligence Agency, and his father, Percifer Charles Daly, was a fuel merchant. During the 1930s, Daly studied drama and acted in shows before he worked for the armed services, and served with the Navy as World War II ended.

Daly was a music major at the University of Wisconsin, a drama major at Iowa State University, and attended Carroll College before receiving a degree from Cornell College in Mount Vernon, Iowa.

Cornell College later presented him with an honorary doctor's degree in Fine Arts.

Between 1953 and 1955 Daly appeared in the TV series Foreign Intrigue. He also guest starred on many television series, among them Appointment with Adventure (two episodes), Breaking Point, Mission: Impossible, The Twilight Zone ("A Stop at Willoughby"), The Tenderfoot (1964) for Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color, The Road West (1966 episode "The Gunfighter"), Custer, Gunsmoke, Combat, The Fugitive, The Virginian, and Twelve O'Clock High. He is also well remembered for his portrayal of "Mr. Flint" (an apparently immortal human) in the Star Trek episode "Requiem for Methuselah" in 1969.

In 1958, Daly signed a contract with the R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company to do television commercials for Camel cigarettes. He served as the Camel representative for seven years, being flown by Reynolds throughout the United States to be filmed smoking a Camel at various locations.

Daly was also an accomplished stage actor, starting out in 1946 as Gary Merrill's understudy in Born Yesterday. Among his starring Broadway roles were in Archibald MacLeish's Pulitzer Prize- winning J.B. and Tennessee Williams' Period of Adjustment.

In addition to his acting career, Daly was one of the hosts on NBC Radio's weekend Monitor program in 1963-1964.

Daly's last screen feature was as "Mr. Boyce" in the mini-series Roots: The Next Generations.

Daly died of heart failure in Nyack, New York, a couple of years after Medical Center ended, while he was preparing to star in the play "Equus" in Tarrytown, New York. His ashes were scattered into the Atlantic Ocean.

The Daly family had an interest in acting for four generations, beginning with Daly's father, Percy, who appeared in theatrical productions in Central Wisconsin. Two of James' children, Tim (James Timothy) (born 1956) and Tyne (Ellen Tyne) (born 1946), are actors, as is his granddaughter Kathryne Dora Brown, daughter of Tyne and actor Georg Stanford Brown of The Rookies television fame. Tyne appeared as a child with James on his TV series Foreign Intrigue and as a teenager in Medical Center, and Tim appeared as a child with his father in Henrik Ibsen's play An Enemy of the People. James Daly also had two other children, Mary Glynn and Pegeen Michael.

MORE INFO ON CHAD EVERETT: Both a leading and a supporting actor in movies and on television, name a role - lawyer, airline pilot, rig foreman, doctor, gunslinger, real-life person, good guy, bad guy - and Chad Everett has probably played it. He was born Raymond Lee Cramton on June 11, 1936, in South Bend, Indiana. In high school he did stage plays and wanted to become an actor.

After he graduated from Wayne University, Chad came to Hollywood and signed a contract with Warner Brothers. He first became known playing a deputy in the short-lived television series "The Dakotas" (1963) but acted in a number of supporting roles, such as Get Yourself a College Girl (1964) and Made in Paris (1966), and played the title role in Johnny Tiger (1966) and Return of the Gunfighter (1967).

He was probably best known for his seven-year run as Dr. Joe Gannon in the television series "Medical Center" (1969), which earned him two Golden Globe Awards and Emmy nominations. After "Medical Center" was canceled, Chad starred in the mini-series "Centennial" (1978) and played the title role in "Hagen" (1980). In the early '80s, Chad was in television films, including _Intruder Within, The (1981)_, and did number of guest appearances on "The Love Boat" (1977) and "Murder She Wrote."

Chad's recent work has included roles in the remake of Psycho (1998) and in Mulholland Dr. (2001). Today he is still seen on television in "Manhattan, AZ" (2000). He recently completed a new film with Gwyneth Paltrow, View from the Top (2003), which is soon to be released. Chad is married to Shelby Grant, and they have three daughters.
