From the LA Times:

Chad Everett, who starred in the 1970s TV drama "Medical Center," has died. He was 75.

Everett's daughter told the Associated Press that he died Tuesday at his home in Los Angeles after a year-and-a-half-long battle with lung cancer.

Perhaps best known for his role as surgeon Dr. Joe Gannon, the actor was twice nominated for a Golden Globe for his perfomances on "Medical Center." The series ran seven seasons and, at the time, tied with "Marcus Welby, M.D." for longest-running medical drama.

But in an acting career that spanned more than 40 years, Everett guest-starred on a wide range of television series, including "The Love Boat," "Murder, She Wrote," "Melrose Place" and as a closeted gay police officer on "Cold Case." Everett found a new audience in 2009 when he acted in an episode of the CW's "Supernatural" as an aged version of Dean Winchester, usually played by Jensen Ackles. He recently appeared in the TV series "Castle."

His film credits include "Mulholland Dr.," "The Jigsaw Murders," "The Firechasers" and director Gus Van Sant's "Psycho."

Man, these old time stars are dropping like flies. Must be the heatwave or something.
