I just hear the news about Jay Thomas. Jay has lost his battle with cancer; he was 69.
We remember him many memorable characters. Thomas was perhaps best known for playing Jerry Gold on “Murphy Brown” from 1989-1998. He also played Rhea Perlman’s TV husband Eddie LeBec on “Cheers” from 1987-1989 before his character was run over by a zamboni. Thomas starred on the hit sitcom “Love & War” from 1992-1995.
This is the thing I remember Jay from the most…it’s one of my all time favs! He was on Letterman in 2009 and he told a story about his early days in radio and a time when he met the Lone Ranger. His comedic timing on this story is so good and I cry from laughing…every time I watch it.
Enjoy and RIP Jay Thomas.
