Actor John Hillerman, best known for role on 'Magnum PI' dies”

John Hillerman, who played the caretaker on 1980s detective show "Magnum, P.I." and appeared in several landmark 1970s films, died Thursday in Houston.

Born on December 20, 1932 in Texas, where he was also raised, Hillerman ironically became most associated with a British character, Magnum P.I.'s by-the-book Higgins. He also portrayed the same character on episodes of Murder, She Wrote and Simon & Simon.

Family spokeswoman Lori De Waal told the Associated Press that the cause of death had not been determined.

In 1975, he starred in "Ellery Queen" as snooty radio detective Simon Brimmer, who was a precursor to Higgins.

Hillerman also appeared in: "The Last Picture Show", "What's Up, Doc?", "High Plains Drifter", "Paper Moon", "Blazing Saddles", "Chinatown", "Lucky Lady", "At Long Last Love", and "Up the Creek".

Hillerman appeared in a number of other series, including "Valerie", "The Love Boat" and "The Betty White Show". He retired from acting in 1999, with his last on-screen role being a Higgins-like character named Dr. Whitehead in the 1996 movie A Very Brady Sequel.
