Actor James Farentino dies of heart failure at 73
LOS ANGELES (AP) A family spokesman says actor James Farentino, who appeared in dozens of movies and television shows, has died in a Los Angeles hospital. He was 73.
Family spokesman Bob Palmer says Farentino died of heart failure after a long illness at Cedars-Sinai Hospital on Tuesday.
Farentino starred alongside Kirk Douglas and Martin Sheen in the 1980 science fiction film "The Final Countdown."
Farentino also starred opposite Patty Duke in 1969's "Me, Natalie."
He also had recurring roles on "Dynasty," ''Melrose Place," ''The Bold Ones: The Lawyers" and "ER," playing the estranged father to George Clooney's character.
A four-time divorcee, Farentino's tumultuous personal life made headlines, too.
In March 1994 he pleaded no contest to stalking his ex-girlfriend Tina Sinatra, daughter of Frank Sinatra.

The man has done a great volume of work. And I have seen alot of it. But for some reason, his role as Simon Peter came to my mind immediately.

R.I.P Mr Farentino :(
