American actor BRUCE GORDON has passed away just days after the death of his The Untouchables co-star Paul Picerni.
The 94 year old, who lived in Santa Fe, New Mexico, died last Thursday (20Jan11) after a long illness, according to Santa Fe Funeral Options, a local funeral home.
The news comes just a week after his TV colleague Picerni suffered a fatal heart attack at his home in Llano, California.
Gordon made his Broadway debut in 1937, playing several small roles in The Fireman's Flame. His other Broadway credits include Arsenic and Old Lace, Medea, Richard II, The Lark and Nowhere to Go But Up.
His television career kicked off in the 1940s, with guest appearances on several U.S. series, including I Spy, Have Gun - Will Travel, Gunsmoke, Perry Mason, Bonanza and Police Woman, among others.
In the late 1950s, he was the host of espionage docudrama Behind Closed Doors, and in the 1960s he enjoyed a recurring role on Peyton Place.
But Gordon will perhaps be best remembered for his role as mob boss Frank Nitti on classic 1960s U.S. TV series The Untouchables.
His feature film credits include Love Happy (1949), The Buccaneer (1958) and Tower of London (1962).
Information on Gordon's survivors was not made available as WENN went to press.
