Kevin McCarthy RIP

A few days ago the film industry lost a fine actor, the SF and Horror community lost a fine ambassador, and by all accounts the world lost a fine gentlemen. Kevin McCarthy, star of the iconic Invasion of the Bodysnatchers, the classic Twilight Zone episode ‘Long Live Walter Jameson’ and Joe Dante’s Piranha amongst many other things, passed away at the impressive age of 96.

Thanks to the chaps at Trailers From Hell I was able to ask Dante about his relationship with McCarthy. My thanks go out to Joe for a well-considered and affectionate response.
