James Whitmore Passes

Emmy and Tony Award winning actor James Whitmore passed away yesterday from complications of lung cancer. He was 87. He will be best remembered for his one-man shows as Will Rogers, Harry Truman and Teddy Roosevelt. He was also nominated for an Oscar for his turn as Truman, the only time a film starring one man has been given the nod. My own personal favorite Whitmore film is Battleground, for which he also was nominated. He’ll be missed.
