The prolific character actor was 93. He had been suffering "age-related dementia" and had recently taken a fall.

If the name doesn't ring a bell, for Westers he was the character actor who played lawyer Mordecai Krone in "The Night of the Bleak Island" (1969). He also appeared six times on Raymond Burr's Perry Mason series (1958-66), once playing a character named Jim West.

Stay healthy, everyone.

The name doesn't exactly ring a bell, but the face sure does. One of those actors who was rarely out of work. RIP Mr. Erdman.

James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: "Thanks Artie"! Is that all you can say to me? I've just come back from the grave, risen like Lazarus, and that's what you say? "Thanks, Artie"?
James: Thanks, Artie.
Artemus: It's a pleasure.
