Never to be Forgotten:
Meshach Taylor 1947-2014
When I was younger, I thought that being typecast was a burden for an actor, but having spent a year and a half researching this blog and listing the credits of so many Oh That Guy actors (and Oh That Gal actresses), it's clear to me that spending several years on a successful TV show is one of the few ways for actors to get a large and dependable paycheck in an unforgiving business. While he gets mentioned here because of his work in genre, Meshach Taylor caught a very lucky break to be on a show that lasted seven seasons when he was in his thirties and forties.
Best wishes to the family and friends of Meshach Taylor, from a fan. He is never to be forgotten.
