Adam West dies at 88

Both Variety and THR are reporting that Hollywood’s beloved Adam West has passed. With a career spanning over 60 years and 193 IMDb credits, Adam West is Hollywood royalty. But it was his tongue in cheek portrayal as Batman in the 1966 television show where he captured the hearts of audiences everywhere, and became an icon. He passed peacefully on Friday night, and is survived by his wife Marcelle, six children, five grandchildren, and two great-grandchildren. He will be missed, but will live on in our hearts fighting crime with his positive glow and winner smile.
