Michael O’Hare, probably best known amongst geeks including Yours Truly as “Commander Jeffrey Sinclair” and later “Valen” from the 1990s sci-fi TV series Babylon 5, passed away yesterday. In addition to being on the underappreciated Babylon 5, he had other notable roles in the original stage version of Aaron Sorkin’s A Few Good Men and one of the best obscure film references in The Simpsons: C.H.U.D..
He’s now, as they said on the show, “out beyond the rim.” Requiescat in pace.
In his memory, a classic “Sinclair” moment from Babylon 5. Gotta love that very 1990s look the reporter’s sporting:
