Warren Frost, R. I. P.

Twin Peaks' Warren Frost Dead at 91: Frost passed away Friday following a long illness, Showtime confirmed in a statement. He played Dr. Will Hayward, the coroner who refused to perform Laura Palmer’s autopsy, on the original ABC run of Twin Peaks, and came out of retirement to reprise the role in Showtime’s upcoming revival. (Frost’s son Mark is a co-creator of Twin Peaks.)

A series I never got to see.

I think more people might remember Warren Frost from the later seasons of Matlock, in which he played Andy Griffith's off-the-wall friend Billy Lewis.

That show is on MeTV, at least ...

Don't forget he was Susan's father (who, it is discovered, was in a relationship with John Cheever) on "SEINFELD".

I did forget that, Deb. But calling him a "beloved actor" as the Daily News did seems a bit much to me.
