Jay Thomas, a comic and character actor whose credits include roles on "Cheers" and "Murphy Brown," has died after a battle with cancer, according to his publicist Tom Estey. Thomas was 69.

Always liked his humor and his characters.

Hmmm, another guy I do not recognize. I watched and loved both Cheers and Murphy Brown, but even after looking at his photo, I cannot recall ever seeing him before. He must have played very minor characters, or my memory is completely shot. At any rate, he obviously entertained many and for that he deserves full credit.

Wow was not expecting that. I listened to him weekly, he had a spot on the Howard Stern Channel on Sirius XM on Fridays I believe (listened on replay). Not once did they ever mention he was even battling cancer or even ill.
