Martin Milner, star of Adam-12, Route 66, dies at 83

milner maharisI grew up watching both Route 66 and Adam-12, so yeah, news of Martin Milner’s passing hit hard.

Variety reported:

Milner began acting in movies while a teen, after his father got him an agent, first appearing in the 1947 classic “Life With Father.” The film starred William Powell and Irene Dunne, and thus Milner, along with his co-star Elizabeth Taylor, bridged the generations in Hollywood between the golden age and contemporary era.

He appeared as Officer Pete Molloy alongside Kent McCord’s Officer Jim Reed in NBC’s “Adam-12” from 1968-75. Molloy was the seasoned, savvy veteran bringing along Reed who was, at first, a rookie.

I agree with this sentiment wholeheartedly:

Milner was 83.  He’ll be missed.
