'House of Cards' and 'The Wire' actor Reg E. Cathey dead at 59

Image

An Alabama native who grew up in West Germany and studied at the Yale School for Drama, Cathey was a celebrated character actor for decades, first rising to prominence on PBS’ math-centric kids’ show Square One, which debuted in 1987. Later, he became a familiar face to fans of acclaimed HBO dramas, playing drug dealer Scalio on Simon’s miniseries The Corner and prison staffer Martin Querns on Oz before starring as political operative Norman Wilson in Seasons 4 and 5 of The Wire.

More recently, Cathey played Frank Underwood’s favorite D.C. rib cook Freddy Hayes on House of Cards, notching three consecutive Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Guest Actor in a Drama Series category and winning the award in 2015. His other recent TV credits included Grimm, Lights Out, Law & Order: SVU and last year’s Oprah Winfrey-starring HBO movie The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.

Marty Allen, Comedian and Daytime T.V. Favorite, Dies at 95

Marty Allen, the bug-eyed comic who formed one half of the hit comedic duo Allen & Rossi, died Monday night in Las Vegas at age 95.

The Associated Press confirmed the news via his spokeswoman Candi Cazau, who said that he died from complications from pneumonia with his performing partner of 30 years and wife Karon Kate Blackwell at his side.

Allen was well-known for his catchphrase “hello dere.” His career began in the 1950s, when he worked as an opening act with partner Mitch DeWood for Sarah Vaughan, Eydie Gorme, and Nat King Cole. After their partnership ended, Allen joined up with Steve Rossi to form Allen & Rossi, with whom he found fame.

The Heroic High School Coach Who Acted As A Human Shield To Save Students

Image

He is among the 17 victims.

People are crediting one high school football coach for saving dozens of lives after police said he used his body as a shield when Nikolas Cruz opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida on Wednesday.

Assistant football coach Aaron Feis, 37, died Feb. 14 at the hospital after he was critically injured during the shooting. According to the Miami Herald, when Cruz started firing, Feis reportedly jumped in front of him to protect students.

“All my kids thought the world of him,” Douglas head football coach Willis May said. “All the graduates that played for us and even the students, man. They’d go on and on about how good he was to them and how he always had a smile for everybody. It’s sad."
