    Goddammit we've lost a lot of BTAS actors over the past few months. Such a shame.

    RIP Bob Hastings

    I can't help but think of the episode "I Am the Night", and Batman at Gordon's bedside...

    :( 

    Hastings performed what I consider to be the first truly excellent portrayal of James Gordon in any non-comics medium.

    Of course, I also enjoy the fact that his connection to Batman actually stretches all the way back to appearing as a military man in an episode of the Adam West series (which makes two Batman '66 actors we've lost inside of a month, Hastings and Wallach).

    Jesus christ man. Michael Ansara, Zimabalist (can't spell his name right), and now Hastings. Who is going to be next, Ed Asner?

    So in total, the dead ones from BTAS are:

    Mr Freeze
    Alfred
    Gordon
    Mad Hatter
    Rupert Thorne
