March 5, 1927
John Joseph Edward “Jack” Cassidy
an American actor of stage, film and screen.
His frequent professional persona was that of an urbane,
super-confident egotist with a dramatic flair, much in the manner of
Broadway actor Frank Fay. Cassidy perfected this character to such an
extent that he was cast as the legendary John Barrymore in the feature
film W.C. Fields and Me. Cassidy turned down the role of Ted
Baxter in The Mary Tyler Moore Show, but later appeared as a
guest star in an episode as Ted's highly competitive and equally
egocentric brother, Hal.
Death: December 12, 1976
Cassidy died in an apartment fire while he slept on the couch, in
West Hollywood, California. News reports at the time attributed the fire
to a lit cigarette. He was 49.
