Remembering actor James Garner
Los Angeles (AP) -- James Garner has died.
The actor who is best known for his role in the TV series "The Rockford Files" passed away this past Saturday at age 86. He was found dead in his Los Angeles home; police say they were called out to the house and confirmed his identity from family members.
Garner specialized in drama and action films. But he had more of a low-key style -- honing a less-threatening take on the American hero, a man more likely to talk his way out of trouble than to shoot his way out of it.
Garner received the Screen Actors Guild's lifetime achievement award in 2005. Accepting the honor, he quipped, "I'm not at all sure how I got here."
