There is some sad news to report in the entertainment world. According to a report from TMZ, legendary actor James Garner has passed away at age 86.
From the TMZ report:
Law enforcement sources tell us an ambulance was dispatched to the actor’s home in Los Angeles around 8PM Saturday evening … and he was dead when they arrived on scene.
Garner played notable roles in “The Rockford Files,” “Maverick” and “The Notebook” during his time on the silver screen.

Rest in peace to the American bad-ass James Garner. One of my favorite childhood movies is called ‘Tank’. Look it up. You won’t regret it.
