Partridge Family actor Dave Madden dead at 83

Dave Madden, best known for his role as the lovable band manager Reuben Kincaid on the classic sitcom The Partridge Family, has died at age 83.

Although primarily associated with The Partridge Family, Madden also had recurring roles on the TV shows Laugh-In and Alice.

In 2007, Madden published his memoirs, Reuben on Wry. Sadly, despite much love from fans, Madden himself seemed to think little of his own career. In an online interview for a Partridge Family fansite, he said:

I try not to look back on my career. I told somebody this one time and I'll tell you. I never did anything as an actor that I was extremely proud of. I wish I could look back and say, OK here was a TV show or a movie that I thought was so perfect for me, or I did such a good job that if I died tomorrow at least I could say I left that as my legacy. But there isn't anything that falls into that category. So, from that point of view I suppose the career was a disappointment.

Last Friday, Madden's Partridge Family co-star David Cassidy was arrested for drunken driving.
