Robert Dean Stockwell. Probably best known as Al in Quantum Leap.

R.I.P. to Robert Dean Stockwell (March 5, 1936 – November 7, 2021)
With a career spanning over 70 years….as a child actor under contract to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, he first came to the public's attention in films such as Anchors Aweigh (1945), The Green Years (1946), Gentleman's Agreement (1947), The Boy With Green Hair (1948), and Kim (1950).
Stockwell had a career revival in the 1980s, appearing in Wim Wenders' acclaimed drama Paris, Texas (1984), followed by roles in David Lynch's films Dune (1984) and Blue Velvet (1986). In 1988, he received critical notice for his portrayal of Howard Hughes in Francis Ford Coppola's Tucker: The Man and His Dream, as well as his role in Jonathan Demme's Married to the Mob, for which he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor. Stockwell subsequently appeared in Robert Altman's The Player (1992), and reunited with Coppola to appear in The Rainmaker (1997).

Missed this by a month. https://www.theguardian.com/tv-and-radio/2021/oct/09/fingerbobs-and-play-school-presenter-rick-jones-dies-aged-84
Was talking about fingerbobs at the weekend, did a quick search to show my daughter and then found this news :(

Interesting read on wikipedia alleging (some) Play School presenters were avid consumers of weed.
Buell owners should be committed (but not for life) ;-)

Sad to Jethro go. He really was funny as fuck - saw him live a few times. Old school funny which probably doesn't go down too well nowadays.

He only retired last year I think...
