James GammonJames Gammon, whose craggy face and whiskey-soaked voice greeted moviegoers and TV-watchers for decades, died on Friday after a two-front battle with liver and adrenal gland cancer. Gammon, best known for roles in the film 'Major League' and on TV with 'Nash Bridges,' was surrounded by family at his daughter's home in Costa Mesa, California. He was 70.

The Illinois native is best remembered for playing Lou Brown, the manager of the pathetic-yet-lovable Cleveland Indians in the 1989 hit 'Major League.' He later reprised the part in 'Major League 2.'
