Quote:
Ken Howard, the strapping character actor who starred in the 1970s TV drama The White Shadow and was currently serving as president of SAG-AFTRA, has died at age 71.

The union announced Howard's death Wednesday. No cause was given.

Howard's career spanned four decades in TV, theatre and film. In the acclaimed CBS series The White Shadow, which aired from 1978-81, he starred as a white coach to an urban high school basketball team — a part, one of Howard's best known, that drew on the personal history of the 6-foot-6 actor, who played basketball growing up on Long Island in New York and at Amherst College.


I was something of a fan of The White Shadow when it aired in the 70s/80s, and saw him just a few weeks back(without knowing it until the credits) in Joy.

Other than that, I must have seen him quite a bit in movies, but he never made much of an impression. I suspect for most people, The White Shadow is his iconic role.
