by - 10:13

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
