    Default Dukes of Hazzard actor James Best dead at 88

    James Best
    'Dukes of Hazzard' Sheriff


    Dead at 88



    James Best -- who famously played bumbling Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane on "The Dukes of Hazzard" -- died Monday night at age 88.


    Best passed in a hospice facility following a brief illness and complications from pneumonia, a close friend told the Charlotte Observer.


    In addition to his role on "Hazzard," Best appeared on several classic shows, including, "Gunsmoke," "Mod Squad," "I Spy," "Bonanza," "Perry Mason" and "Rawhide."


    Best formed an acting school in the '70s where he taught the likes of Burt Reynolds, Clint Eastwood, Lindsay Wagner, Farrah Fawcett and Quentin Tarantino.


    RIP.

    Thanks! I saw the film so long ago that I was wondering if I was even remembering it accurately. It was a really taboo topic back then, and I remember when Best tells another character what happened, I was totally thrown for a loop - did not see it coming.

    "Mah name is Rosco PEEEEEEEEEEE Coltrane!!!"

    I went to high school with a guy named Ross and that's what we called him all the time.
