General Hospital Actor Jay Pickett DIES on Film Set

Actor Jay Pickett, best known for his work on such daytime soap operas as General Hospital and Port Charles, died last week in Idaho while acting in a western he co-wrote, Treasure Valley. He was 60 years old. At the time of this writing, Pickett’s cause of death has not been released, but the film’s director Travis Mills believes that the longtime actor suffered a heart attack while sitting on a horse.“Jay Pickett, our leading man, writer, producer, and creator of this movie passed away suddenly while we were on location preparing to film a scene. There is no official explanation for the cause of his death but it appears to have been a heart attack,” Mills wrote in an emotional Facebook post. “Everyone present tried as hard as they could to keep him alive. Our hearts are broken and we grieve for his family who are so devastated by this shocking tragedy.”Mills went on to say that Pickett was “an incredible man” who was “kind, sweet, and generous” to all those who collaborated with him. “It is difficult to find the words right now to say more,” he added. “His closest friends have said that he was very happy making Treasure Valley and my hope is that he truly was. He was doing what he loved: acting, riding horses, making movies. And he was magnificent.”Pickett’s co-star, Jim Heffel, provided more insight into his death with a Facebook post of his own. Jay died sitting on a horse ready to rope a steer in the movie Treasure Valley in Idaho. The way of a true cowboy. Jay wrote the story and starred in it. He was also co-producer with myself and Vernon Walker. He will be truly missed. Ride like the wind partner,” he wrote.Jay Pickett appeared on such 80s classics like China Beach, Mr. Belvedere, Jake and the Fatman, and Matlock before transitioning into daytime soaps. Later in his career, Picket made several guest spots on such shows as Dexter, The Mentalist, NCIS: Los Angeles, Rosewood, and Queen Sugar. He is survived by his wife and three children.

    Start your mech piloting career in Override 2: Super Mech League, out today

    Hey Pilots! The time is finally here to enter the arena and start your journey to the top in Override 2: Super Mech League. At Modus Games, we’re extremely excited to welcome returning fans and newcomers to the series with today’s launch.  Play Video The 3D competitive arena brawler returns with 20 distinctly devastating mechs, an amped up fast-paced combat system, and an all-new career mode. Rise through the Ranks What better way to make a name for yourself as a pilot than Override 2’s all-new career mode called Leagues. In Leagues, your agent Zoe will guide you through the ins and outs of the Super Mech League and set you up with your first few matches.  Each match type available in Leagues has an associated rank, which increases as you beat-down the competition against players online worldwide. Leagues feature returning match types from the first Override such as 1v1, 2v2, and free-for-all brawls. Additionally, series-first match types such as Control, a king-of-the-hill style battle, and Xenoswarm, a battle for survival against Kaiju-infused bots, will appear in the Leagues rotation.  Earn Sponsorships and Join Clubs  As you attain reputation in the mech fighting circuit, pilots have the option to accept limited-time sponsorships. Put on a show for the crowd by completing the in-game challenges from sponsorships to earn bonus coins. Raking in that extra cash opens up a slew of options for customization in the Garage, including unlocking additional mechs to fight with in Leagues, skins for each part of your mech, and cosmetic attachments.  Once you’ve gained enough experience, you’ll unlock the option to join one of three Clubs – Magma, Pacifica, and Starlight. Winning matches and completing challenges will raise your clubs collective influence. The more influence your club gains, the more rewards you’ll reap!  Become the Best Mech Pilot  Finding the right mech to suit your fighting style and personality will be the first step in becoming a top-tier pilot, but we also wanted to provide a few tips and tricks to give you an advantage in the arena.  An important mechanic pilots should use is the quick recovery system. By tapping the jump button while knocked down, mechs will spring back into action. “The bigger they are the harder, the harder they fall,” doesn’t really apply to these advanced technological fighting machines.  Upon death, mechs will persist on the map for a short duration and explode. In matches with more than two players, surprise your opponents by grabbing the mech scraps. Timed correctly, you can throw them like an item to catch your enemies in the blast!  Override 2: Super Mech League and Override 2: Super Mech League – Ultraman Edition are available now at PlayStation Store for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. Till next time, we’ll see you in the arena.
