Actor Richard "Dick" Davalos -- onetime co-star and roommate of James Dean, and later Morrissey obsession turned Smiths cover boy -- has died at the age of 85. Although I never met the man, I've had the pleasure of meeting his daughter Dominique, whose angular beauty she clearly inherited from Pops and who sings and plays bass with my friend Kathy Valentine in the Austin-based group The Bluebonnets. Condolences to Dominque and all his loved ones. The Hollywood Reporter has a nice remembrance HERE.
