LOS ANGELES -- Actor Darren McGavin, who starred in five series, including "Mike Hammer," "Riverboat" and "Kolchak: The Night Stalker." has died. He was 83.

His son said McGavin died of natural causes at a Los Angeles area hospital with his family at his side.

Aside from perhaps his best-known film role as the father in "A Christmas Story," McGavin was also known as a prolific actor in television movies.

Despite his busy career in television, McGavin was awarded only one Emmy: in 1990 for an appearance as Candice Bergen's opinionated father in an episode of "Murphy Brown."
