Everett played sensitive doctor Joe Gannon for seven years on Medical Center, which earned him two Golden Globes and an Emmy nomination, as part of a 40-year career in TV and films. He was a favorite of my mama's... and mine, as a little gay boy who didn't quite understand why he had such a crush on the good doctor.
Everett was born in South Bend, and graduated from Wayne State before moving to Los Angeles and becoming a contract player with MGM. He was married to actress Shelby Grant for 45 years until her death last year.
Let's give Chad a real Smoking Nun send-off, with a fine collective of pics throughout his career. *
