Rest in Peace: Morgan Jones

Rest in Peace: Morgan JonesWhile the name Morgan Jones may not exactly jump out at you, we can pretty much guarantee that if you're a fan of vintage horror and science fiction, his face and his body of work will be instantly recognizable.

Variety reports that Jones, a character actor in TV and film, died in Tarzana, California, on January 13th. He was 84.

Jones amassed more than 170 television credits, appearing as a series regular in "The Blue Angels" in the early 1960s, "The Twilight Zone", and recurring on Broderick Crawford series "Highway Patrol." The actor also appeared in more than 25 feature films, including The Giant Claw, Forbidden Planet, and the 1957 cult classic Not of This Earth.

We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to offer our sincerest of condolences to Jones' friends, family, and constituents. Thanks for the memories, kind sir. You'll be missed.

What did...hold on, let me look again, what was his name, oh yeah, Morgan Jones, what did Morgan Jones ever do to you James Coker that infuriates you to the point of calling him an “asshole”. Tisk tisk, you young kids today, so disrespectful...Very sad. I hope he comes back and haunts you….he’ll probably just come back and haunt a drink coaster or lamp, something insignificant, but that’s besides the point....

You guys on Dread Central certainly are thorough, I'll give ya that. If you were the shoeshine boy in episode #332 of the Outer Limits or an unaccredited patron seen in the background during Friday the 13th part 8, your demise will NOT go unnoticed…Not here, no fucking way…You will be missed Miss or Mr whoever the hell you are, oh yes you will…Lol.
