Here’s What Alan Dale From NCIS Is Doing Now

After Alan Dale had left both “NCIS” and “The O.C.” he was cast as magazine mogul Bradford Meade on “Ugly Betty.” By then, the actor had developed a morbid sense of humor about the way his characters were often getting killed off and how it affected the show. “I’ve been lucky in lots of ways in shows like ‘The O.C.’ that have become a smash,” he told the NZ Herald in 2007. “Then I leave and it dies. It’s great.”

His Bradford Meade character on “Ugly Betty” met the same fate as his “Neighbors” and “O.C.” roles as he was, yep, killed off once again with a heart attack. “I think I should go into the Guinness Book of Records as the actor who has had the most heart attacks on television,” he joked to Hobo Trash Can. Ouch!

Afterward, Dale landed on another massively popular show when he was cast on “Lost” as Charles Widmore. The actor revealed to Hobo Trash Can that he was a fan of the series before landing the role, and initially believed he was hired to appear on only one episode. “I didn’t know that it was going to continue on right through to the end of the series,” Dale said. That was not Dale’s last role in a well-received series or the last time his character met a grisly demise …
