John Spencer dead at 58

Veteran actor John Spencer, who played former Chief of Staff Leo McGarry on The West Wing has died of a heart attack. He will be greatly missed. Truth is indeed stranger than fiction as a debilitating heart-attack almost killed his character just last season. His death will no doubt send the show's writers scrambling to resolve what had become an ever-increasingly pivital role on the superb series.

This was particularly poignant to me, as I have recently started to watch my way through the entire WW dvd set. He was indeed a quality presence on screen and will be missed.

John Spencer was probably top on my list as to why I got back into WEST WING this season. He will be missed.
