Actor James Garner Dies

Actor James Garner,  perhaps best known for his two iconic television roles — as Brett Maverick in “Maverick”  in the 19502,  and as Jim Rockford in “The Rockford Files” twenty years later, has died at age 86.

CBS News reports that Los Angeles police confirm his death.

Besides his television roles,  Garner appeared in dozens of films,  including “The Americanization of Emily,” “The Notebook,” “Space Cowboys,” “Victor, Victoria” and “The Great Escape.”  He also co-starred in a series of television commercials for Polaroid cameras in the 1970s.
