Sad news about the beloved actor Scott Bakula

Scott Bakula has played a time-traveling hero in “Quantum Leap,” Captain Jonathan Archer in “Star Trek: Enterprise,” and Special Agent in Charge in “NCIS: New Orleans,” but his biggest role over the last 30 years has been as one of Hollywood’s most renowned, underappreciated talents. Bakula is noted for portraying strong, compassionate heroes with a twinkle in their eyes and comedy, charm, and melancholy.

On “Leap,” the multi-talented actor took on a different identity each week, solving problems and righting wrongs before leaping into another life to do it all over again. Week after week, the amusing sci-fi series acquired a devoted fan base and showed Bakula’s various talents.
