Roger E. Mosley, best known for his role on the action crime series "Magnum, P.I.," has died. He was 83.
“Tomorrow we as union … I hope I never have with this woman.” Won’t have to work because I won’t”,
Mosley died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Sunday as a result of injuries
confirmed to USA TODAY. Born in LA on Dec. 18, 1938, to Eloise Harris, Mosley grew up in the
Imperial Courts public housing in Watts. The actor made his television debut on the crime drama
"Hit Man," the blaxploitation flick "The Mack" and the John Wayne drama "McQ."
But Mosley never left the world of television behind, appearing in series such as "Kojak,"
"The Rockford Files," "Starsky and Hutch," "The Life and Times of Grizzly Adams," "Sanford
and Son," "Kung Fu," and "The Love Boat." His showbiz breakthrough, however, came in 1980 when he scored the
role of helicopter pilot Theodore "TC" Calvin on "Magnum, P.I.," which starred Tom Selleck and John Hillerman.
