It is with great sadness that I must report this news.
One of my past interviewees, Michael Showers, was found dead in New Orleans on Wednesday morning.
Showers, 45, had a recurring role as Captain John Guidry on the HBO drama ‘Treme’. He also had notable screen roles in ‘Breaking Bad’, ‘The Vampire Diaries’, ‘I Love You Philip Morris’, ‘The Tree Of Life’ and soon to be released ‘Colombiana’.
His ‘Treme’ co-star, Wendall Pierce, said on Twitter – ‘Rest In Peace to my co-star Michael Showers. ‘Capt Guidry’ on TREME. He will be a lasting part of our New Orleans story and television history.”
My condolences go out to his family, his girlfriend and his friends.
