RIP Richard Hatch

Posted by on Feb 7, 2017 in Hey Fanboy!, The World's Greatest Comic Book Podcast™ Hold 322! | 0 comments

It’s with a heavy heart that we report the passing of a talented actor, and friend of the World’s Greatest Comic Book Podcast, Richard Hatch, best known for his roles of Apollo and Tom Zarek on both series of Battlestar Galactica. TMZ  is reporting that he passed away in hospice from Pancreatic cancer. He was 71 years young.

We had the opportunity to interview him at the first Salt Lake Comic Con. He was a delightful and stand-up guy.

FROM JEFF: Who couldn’t read his lines, but was adorable not doing it.
