He never won an Emmy…but he was one of the popular stars of the Golden Age of Television.
Jack Larson…who played the cub reporter Jimmy Olsen in the TV series “Adventures of Superman”…was so good at what he did…he was forever typecast.
And so after the series ended…he changed careers and became a playwright and producer.
But he said no matter what he did…he would always be remembered for his iconic role as Jimmy Olsen…and he had no regrets.
Jack Larson died on Sunday at his home in Brentwood California.
He was 87 years old.
