Andy Hallett is best known as Lorne from Angel. I don't know how many Angel fans there are here, but I was a big fan of that show. He was only 33. Sad.

'Angel' star Andy Hallett, 33, dies of heart failure
Mar 30, 2009, 09:35 PM | by Christine Spines

Categories: Film, Legacy

Actor and musician Andy Hallett died on Sunday night at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles. He was 33 and had endured a five-year battle with congestive heart disease. Hallett was best known as Lorne, the friendly demon who reads people when they open up at the karaoke mic, on the TV series Angel. It was a role that show creator Joss Whedon wrote specifically for Hallett, after Whedon saw the entertainer performing the blues at a Los Angeles nightclub.

In 2004, just as Angel's run was ending, Hallett saw a doctor after suffering debilitating fatigue and learned that he had the degenerative disease. Too tired to take on acting work, he shifted back to singing occasionally around town and attending fan conventions when he could. He is survived by his father, Dave Hallett, who was at his bedside and will hold the funeral near his home in Cape Cod, Mass.

Sad news. He was one of the most underrated parts of that underrated show. Great singer, great actor.



Kirk, crackers are a family food. Happy families. Maybe single people eat crackers, we don't know. Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.

Very sad news. I loved the Lorne character and Andy did a great job. I'll always remember that Lorne of all people killed Lindsey in the end.

On some happier Angel news though, Alexis Denisoff and Alyson Hannigan welcomed their first baby.

THAT IS AWESOME!

Ditto all of that. Very sad news indeed. He was one of the most consistently entertaining characters on that show. And only 33? Geez.

I almost thought American Dad was headed for its first clunker of the season, but that last segment with Stan and Francine in Roger's brain is easily the trippiest and funniest stuff on Sunday night.
