Miguel Ferrer, who brought stern authority to his featured role on CBS'
hit "NCIS: Los Angeles" and, before that, to NBC crime drama "Crossing
Jordan," has died.
CBS said Ferrer died Thursday of cancer at his Los Angeles home. He was 61.
He had played assistant director Owen Granger on "NCIS: Los Angeles" since 2012. Before that, he played the chief medical examiner and gruff-but-supportive boss to series star Jill Hennessy for the six seasons of "Crossing Jordan."
historic high-rise building in the heart of Iran's capital caught fire
and later collapsed Thursday, killing at least 30 firefighters and
leaving their stunned colleagues and bystanders weeping in the streets.
The disaster at the 17-story Plasco building, inadvertently shown live on state television, came after authorities said they repeatedly warned tenants about blocking stairwells with fabric from cramped garment workshops on its upper floors.
