‘Cheyenne’ Star Clint Walker Dies @ 90

Clint Walker, the handsome devil who starred on TV's Cheyenne (1955-1963), has died at 90, TMZ reports.

Clint Walker: May 30, 1927—May 21, 2018

Walker died "suddenly" Mondayclint  in the company of family, who later confirmed to the site that the cause of death was congestive heart failure.

Walker's big break was a small part in The Ten Commandments (1956), which showed off his strapping physique and Hollywood looks. After appearing in a few films, Cheyenne became his calling card.

He went on to appear in a variety of series, including 77 Sunset Strip (1963) and a memorable two-episode arc on The Lucy Show (1965-1966) that made excellent use of his hunk factor.

His film career was limited, but he did star in None but the Brave (1965), Frank Sinatra's (1915-1998) debut and swan song as a director.

Walker worked off and on throughout the '60s, '70s and '80s, tapering off precipitously toward the end of his career, when he made just four appearances in the '90s. His final on-camera appearance was on Kung Fu: The Legend Continues in 1995, and he later (1998) provided a voice for Small Soldiers.
