TV’s most famous Batman, Adam West, dies

Adam West, the actor who played the title role in the kitschy 1960’s Batman television series, has died at age 88, Variety reported on June 10, citing a family statement.

West, who was so closely identified with his tongue-in-cheek portrayal of the cartoon superhero that he had trouble landing other roles when the show ended, died on the evening of June 9 after a struggle with leukaemia, his representative told Variety.

His representatives did not immediately return calls or emails seeking comment. – Reuters
