“Joseph Campanella, a character actor who appeared in more than 200 TV and film roles over his 50-year career, died at his Sherman Oaks, Calif., home on Wednesday,” reports Variety, noting that he was 93.

The Variety story continues, “Campanella appeared across five seasons of late ’60s and early ’70s crime drama ‘Mannix,’ for which he earned a supporting actor Emmy nomination in 1968, and six seasons of ’70s sitcom ‘One Day at a Time.’ He had a number of other co-starring roles on the small screen, including ’60s hospital drama ‘The Doctors and the Nurses,’ the ’70s medical series ‘Marcus Welby, M.D.,’ and ’80s primetime soap story ‘The Colbys.’ In more recent years, the actor held a recurring role on daytime soap opera ‘The Bold and the Beautiful’ from 1996 to 2005 and worked on ‘The Practice’ and ‘That’s Life.’”

Here’s Campanella in a short clip from “Mannix” that we found on YouTube (Campanella comes on after the first scene that Mike Connors is in as the title character):
