Unhappy Bill Daily (1927-2018)

Link

Bill Daily, the affable TV actor who starred as Major Roger Healey in “I Dream of Jeannie” as well as on “The Bob Newhart Show,” died Sept. 4 in Santa Fe, N.M., his son J. Patrick Daily confirmed. He was 91.

“He loved every sunset, he loved every meal — he just decided to be happy about everything,” said his son.

The longtime Albuquerque resident was a staple on series of the 1960s through 1980s. He appeared as Bob Newhart’s pilot neighbor Howard Borden on “The Bob Newhart Show” and as psychiatrist Dr. Larry Dykstra on “ALF.”

On “I Dream of Jeannie,” he co-starred with Larry Hagman and Barbara Eden on all five seasons of the NBC sitcom as Captain and then Major Healey, the best friend and fellow astronaut to Hagman, who at one point steals Jeannie but later returns her to her master.


In 1980, Daily briefly had his own TV series, “Small & Frye,” but it lasted only three months. A longtime magic fan, he hosted several magic specials.

His other TV appearances included “Bewitched,” “Love Boat,” “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” and “Love, American Style,” as well as recurring roles in the 1980s on “Aloha Paradise” and “Starting from Scratch.”

He returned for several “I Dream of Jeannie” and “The Bob Newhart Show” reunion specials in the 1980s and ’90s. Daily also served as director of the New Mexico Film Commission in the late 1980s.

Born in Des Moines, Iowa, Daily was raised in Chicago and started out doing stand-up and announcing at a Chicago TV station.

He is survived by his son J. Patrick Daily, a key grip for motion pictures

I just read Barbara Eden's beautiful memorial post to Bill on her official Instagram account... So very sad. He was such a funny actor who brought so much laughter to his performances on I Dream of Jeannie and The Bob Newhart Show. He will be missed...

I was so saddened to hear the news about Mr. Bill Daily who was our loveable Major Healy. The friendship between Major Healy and Major Nelson is one of my all-time favorites. And I loved Major Nelson, Major Healy, and Jeannie as a trio. RIP Major Healy/Bill Daily. You will be missed.

In addition to all of Mr. Daily's great onscreen work, I imagine that he was a was a bit of 'rodeo clown' and peacemaker which likely was sorely needed to keep things from getting too tense between Mr. Hagman and the rest of the cast & crew.

(Yes, I have to feel sorry for Miss Eden [now the last surviving cast member] who seemed to be very easy to get along with but ALSO had to be a peacemaker re Mr. Hagman's temper and stunts- despite the fact that it was HER show)

At least on 'Bob Newhart', there doesn't seem to have been any egomaniac divas despite the talent and pedigrees of the performers (including Miss Pleshette) so I imagine he was able to relax a bit.

RIP, Major Healy and Howard Borden!
