That's too young. He was a fine performer.

Most memorable for me and my wife was Davis's role as Scully's dad in one of the best "X-Files" episodes, "Beyond the Sea."

Shoot! (George Carlin: You can't fool me shoot is... with two oh's.) I missed this (been basking in the heady glow of winning the June Pulp of the Day captioning contest and inattentive to the internet). Fine actor who made anything he was in classier. Loved him in Twin Peaks. Disappointed when he left Stargate SG-1.
