JACK WARDEN, ACTOR, DEAD AT 85

Emmy-winning actor Jack Warden, best known for playing gruff 
but likeable characters for five decades, has died in New 
York at 85. Warden -- who won an Emmy for his performance as 
football legend George Halas in the 1971 TV movie "Brian's 
Song" -- also received two Oscar nominations during a career 
in which he appeared in more than 100 films. Warden's break-
through movie performance came as an impatient juror who 
wanted to decide a case quick so he could go to a ballgame, 
in the 1957 courtroom drama, "12 Angry Men." He was 
nominated for supporting actor Oscars for two films he made 
with Warren Beatty -- "Shampoo" (1975) and "Heaven Can Wait" 
(1978). Warden appeared on network TV in the 1950s in "Mr. 
Peepers," and starred in "Crazy Like a Fox" in the 1980s. 
Warden married actress Vanda Dupre in 1958. They separated 
in the 1970s, but never divorced, Pazoff said. Warden is 
survived by his companion Marucha Hinds, his son and two 
grandchildren, the Times reported.

CARL BRASHEAR, FIRST BLACK NAVY DIVER, DEAD AT 75

Carl M. Brashear, the first black U.S. Navy diver, and the 
first Navy diver to be restored to full active duty as an 
amputee, has died. He was 75. Brashear was portrayed by Cuba 
Gooding Jr. in the 2000 film "Men of Honor." After a 1996 
leg injury he sustained during a salvage operation, Brashear 
had to have the bottom of his left leg amputated to avoid 
gangrene. Although the Navy was ready to retire Brashear 
from active duty, he began a grueling training program that 
included diving, running and calisthenics. It was an uphill 
battle for Brashear when he first joined the Navy in 1948, 
right after the U.S. military desegregated. He was later 
accepted and graduated from the diving program, despite 
daily struggles with discrimination. He went on to train for 
advanced diving programs before his 1966 incident. "He kept 
to himself personally, but his military life was an open 
book," said Junetta Brashear, his first wife.

MAKO, ACTING PIONEER, DEAD AT 72

Mako, a pioneer in the acceptance of Asian Americans into 
Hollywood, has died in California at the age of 72 from 
esophageal cancer. The Los Angeles Times said Mako, who was 
born Makoto Iwamatsu and revolutionized Hollywood's stereo-
typed view of Asian-American actors, died Friday at his 
home in the Ventura County town of Somis. Mako first drew 
the attention of U.S. moviegoers in 1966 when he was 
nominated for an Academy Award for his compelling turn as 
the Chinese character Po-han in the film, "The Sand Pebbles."
Later he formed the first Asian-American theater company, 
East West Players, where he trained scores of aspiring 
playwrights and actors over the years. "What many people say 
is, 'If it wasn't for Mako there wouldn't have been Asian-
American theater,'" artistic director of East West Players, 
Tim Dang, told the Times. "He is revered as sort of the 
godfather of Asian American theater."

J. MADISON WRIGHT MORRIS, ACTRESS, DEAD AT 21

Former child TV actress J. Madison Wright Morris, who under-
went a heart transplant at 15, died last week in Kentucky 
from a heart attack at the age of 21. The Los Angeles Times 
said that one day after marrying Brent Joseph Morris on July 
8, the former child star suffered a major heart attack which 
ultimately took her life last Friday. During her entertain-
ment career which began at age five, Harris starred in the 
TV series "Earth 2," had roles on successful shows such as 
"ER," and appeared in a feature film in 1997 entitled 
"Shiloh." In her teenage years Harris, who shortened the 
name Jessica to J. in an attempt to distinguish herself, was 
diagnosed with the heart muscle disease restrictive cardio-
myopathy which ultimately led her to a heart transplant in 
2000. She is survived by her husband, her parents Scott and 
Melissa Wright, her siblings Tori, Isaiah, and Elijah, four 
grandparents, two great-grandparents, and a great-great-
grandmother, the Times said.
