Jeremy SlateVeteran character actor Jeremy Slate - you might not know the name but you definitely know the face - died of complications from throat surgery last week in Los Angeles.

Slate was known for his movie roles in Girls! Girls! Girls!, Lawnmower Man, and Hell's Angels '69, but he was even more known for the massive amount of work he did on the small screen, starting in the late '50s. Slate was a regular on the 1960 series The Aquanauts, and had guest roles on many shows, including Route 66, Perry Mason, Dr. Kildare, Naked City, Have Gun, Will Travel, Alfred Hitchcock Presents, Mr. Lucky, The Untouchables, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Bewitched, Combat, Tarzan, Bonanza, Ironside, Mission: Impossible, Mannix, Wonder Woman, The Wonderful World of Disney, and many others. Most recently he guest-starred on an episode of My Name Is Earl.

I remember him most from his two soap roles: he played Chuck Wilson, Asa's assistant, on One Life To Live for many years, and had a short-lived role as songwriter Locke Walls on Guiding Light in the mid-80s (he was involved with Alexandra Spaulding and her son Nick, if I'm not mistaken).

I dated Jeremy in the 80's when we lived on the Monterey Penninsula. He was a creative free spirit and an all around nice guy.
rest in peace Jeremy.

Scott has known Jeremy as a friend for over 40 years. He was a wonderful companion and always upbeat and happy. We will miss him very much.

He was great as the villain in The Born Losers, the first Billy Jack movie. What a great actor. RIP.

It's amazing how many times you see an actor like Slate, and forget his name. Unfortunately I'm old enough to remember watching him when Girls! Girls! Girls!, came out.

Hey, he outlived Elvis didn't he?
