Birthplace: Los Angeles, California, USA

One of the most famous faces of TV's golden age of the 1950s and '60s, actor/writer/producer Jack Larson enjoyed a career chock full of its share of highs and lows. As Superman's bowtie wearing sidekick, Jimmy Olsen in "The Adventures of Superman" (Syndicated, 1952-58), Larson made "Golly jeepers, Mister Kent!" a household phrase. Unfortunately, its resonant echo survived long after the show's demise and, along with the premature death of the show's superhero star, George Reeves, would haunt the rest of Larson's acting career. Later, Larson found some success as a film producer, working closely with his longtime partner, writer/director James Bridges. Lasron died of undisclosed causes on September 20, 2015 at the age of 87.
