    Quantum Leap Actor Dean Stockwell dead at 85

    https://variety.com/2021/film/actors...or-1235107891/

    Dean Stockwell, who began his acting career as a child in Hollywood?s golden age and later performed memorably in David Lynch?s ?Blue Velvet?; in the comedy ?Married to the Mob,? for which he was Oscar nominated; and on TV?s ?Quantum Leap,? for which he was Emmy nominated, died Sunday. He was 85.

    The actor racked up an extraordinary 200 credits in a career that spanned seven decades, working with notable directors including Lynch, Jonathan Demme, Robert Altman, Wim Wenders, Sidney Lumet and Francis Ford Coppola.

    He picked up a supporting-actor Oscar nomination for Demme?s 1988 Mafia comedy ?Married to the Mob,? starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Matthew Modine, in which he played mob boss Tony ?the Tiger? Russo, who was simultaneously chilling and amusing.

    One of Stockwell?s most memorable roles was as Admiral ?Al? Calavicci in NBC sci-series ?Quantum Leap? which ran for five seasons between 1989 and 1993. The womanizing, larger than life character was the foil for Scott Bakula?s role as Dr. Sam Beckett, a physicist who engaged in space time experiments.
