Starsky And Hutch actor dies
Starsky And Hutch actor Bernie Hamilton has died aged 80.

Bernie, who played the no-nonsense police captain on the 1970s TV series, died of cardiac arrest at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre, according to his son, Raoul Hamilton.

Born in Los Angeles in 1928, Bernie ran away from home as a teenager and wound up staying in someone's garage and attending Oakland Technical High School, where he played football and got involved in acting.

Bernie appeared in more than 20 films, including The Young One, The Devil at 4 O'Clock, Synanon, The Swimmer, Walk The Walk and The Organisation.

He also had guest appearances on television series before becoming a regular on Starsky And Hutch, the ABC police drama starring Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul. Bernie played the brusque, by-the-book Captain Harold Dobey, a role that gave him wide recognition to this day, his son said.

After the show ended, Bernie spent the next 20 years in the music business producing R&B and gospel records under the record label Chocolate Snowman

Police say John Travolta's 16-year-old son Jett has died after a caretaker found him unconscious.

NASSAU, Bahamas - John Travolta's teenage son, Jett, died in the Bahamas after falling ill and hitting his head at his family's vacation home, police said Friday. A house caretaker found Jett, 16, unconscious in a bathroom late Friday morning. He was taken by ambulance to a Freeport hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to a statement from chief police superintendent Basil Rahming.

The teenager had last been seen going into the bathroom on Thursday and had a history of seizures, according to the statement. Police said they are planning an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

Another police spokeswoman, Loretta Mackey, said Jett apparently hit his head on the bathtub.

A spokeswoman for Rand Memorial Hospital in Freeport said she could not release any information because of privacy concerns.

Jett was the oldest child of Travolta and his wife, actress Kelly Preston, who also have an 8-year-old daughter. The family arrived on a private plane Tuesday and had been vacationing at their home in the Old Bahama Bay resort community.
