Blind Item #6 - Reader Blind Item

Certain aspects of this deceased handsome actor’s life would make for a good tell all all biography.  He would be very recognizable to people of a certain age especially women.

He was in movies but his biggest film roles were supporting ones. He was in a number of TV series but none lasted longer than a couple seasons.  His most famous TV role was probably this series wherein he played a character with a physical handicap who was coached in a couple episodes by this deceased legendary action star.

The actor for whom the term egomanaic would be an understatement was difficult on set.  Off set, he was married a couple times but preferred men.

He had a lengthy on and off relationship with this deceased TV actor famous for a lead role on this iconic family show that had a film reboot(s).

What killed the TV actor also killed this actor despite that not being listed as his cause of death.

According to Wikepedia:

James Franciscus

On March 28, 1960, Franciscus married Kathleen "Kitty" Wellman, the daughter of film director William A. Wellman. They had four children – Jamie, Kellie, Korie, and Jolie. After the couple's divorce he married Carla Ankney in 1980. They were still married at the time of Franciscus' 1991 death from emphysema in North Hollywood, California, at the age of 57.

And from Wikepedia:

Franciscus may be best-remembered for his title roles in NBC's Mr. Novak (1963–65) and ABC's Longstreet (1971–72) which included his blind character taking martial arts lessons in Jeet Kune Do from the late Bruce Lee as Li Tsung in four episodes
