Archie radio show actor Harlan Stone dies

Archie Comics has issued a news release that Harlan Stone, a longtime radio actor best-known as Jughead on the "Archie Andrews" show, died Wednesday from complications of valve transplant surgery. Stone started out as a child model and went on to direct TV commercials. He wrote a book called "Aw ... Relax, Archie! Re-laxx!" which chronicalled his life in entertainment. He was a frequent guest at the Friends of Old-Time Radio convention, up through last fall. "We at Archie Comics send our deepest sympathy to his family at their time of loss," the release said.

Spotted: His blond thinning hair and eyeglasses may have cloaked him, but his trademark sexy voice certainly gave him away ... Michael Nader, playing a sex-obsessed video voyeur, on "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" during yesterday's all-day marathon on USA cable. Our own Dex Dexter of "Dynasty" was definitely taking a dastardly turn. And one of his video victims was Emily Deschanel of Fox's "Bones." The episode, called "Surveillance," was from 2002.
