Kevin McCarthy (1914-2010)

Kevin McCarthy had an acting resume that could choke a horse. Film, theatre, television...you name it. Check him out on imdb.com and you'll see.

With a career that spanned seven decades, you'll have a resume like that of the actor who passed away on September 11th at the age of 96 in a Cape Cod hospital.

His achievements in the acting industry are very many, including an Oscar nomination for his performance as Biff in the 1951 film version of "Death of a Salesman".

He will be forever known for his frantic performance in the original "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" from 1956, but it is worthy of note that McCarthy never stopped working, going even until just recently.

That's an actor to me!
