james garner dead age 86 natural causes

The circle of life is so sad sometimes!

No matter what generation you’re from, you have seen the legendary actor James Garner in action, but he’s now going to be laid to rest.

The Maverick and The Rockford Files star was found dead in his Los Angeles home on Saturday night at 8pm, after an ambulance was sent to his house. He died of natural causes. He reportedly smoked for most of his life, even after suffering a stroke in 2008.

For the younger generation, you probably know Mr. Garner from his work in The Notebook, as Duke.

Our thoughts are with James’ family and friends as they deal with their tragic loss.

House Kills The Rockford Files Reboot!

Filed under: TV News

Well, that's the end of that!

The proposed NBC reboot of the '70s crime drama The Rockford Files has been suddenly shelved, and for everyone out there super disappointed, you have House to blame!

Why, you ask?

Writer David Shore had been set to develop the remake, but was called back to the Hugh Laurie medical drama - which he created - when a proposed storyline on the series, planned to take up a significant portion of the season, was scrapped in the advanced stages, and executive producers asked for his help to re-break a new arc!

He's since shelved Rockford, although there is still the option to try and get it off the ground again next year.

We've been hearing rumblings about this proposed remake for years, and things have never seemed to come to fruition, so maybe this is a sign to just leave the original series as is!

Not EVERYTHING needs to be re-made!

Besides, if the want mystery, we say reboot Murder, She Wrote! That shiz is where it's at!

LOLz!

Thoughts?? You disappointed to see The Rockford Files fall to the wayside??

Lost's Josh Holloway To Join The Rockford Files?

This is a much better choice!

Lost's Josh Holloway may have a new job!

NBC is eyeing the smoking hot actor to star in their reboot of the '70s private-eye TV show The Rockford Files.

Now that Dermot Mulroney is out, producers believe he would be the perfect choice to take over the iconic role that James Garner made famous.

The first attempt to revive the franchise failed big time when critics said "[It] looked like it was shot in the ’70s."

Steve Carrell and Peter Berg are among the producers that are behind the project, along with House's David Shore who says that “NBC is still high on the project. They would like it to happen. Peter Berg’s involved producing and possibly directing and we will be looking for a new lead.”

Shore adds that Holloway is a “viable choice,” but “it’s too premature” to start naming names.

We weren't too sure about Dermot Mulroney, but we think Josh is a MUCH better fit for the role!
