RIP Russell Johnson
Everyone’s favorite professor has died. Russell Johnson was a versatile actor appearing in hundreds of television shows and motion pictures. He was adept at playing scientist or technician roles in low-budget sci-fi thrillers such as Attack of the Crab Monsters and It Came from Outer Space, but also appeared in dramatic, romantic and cowboy roles. Here we have Johnson with character actor Joe Sawyer, succumbing to xenomorphs in It Came from Outer Space (1953).
