RIP James Hampton

Fort Worth, Texas–Character actor James Hampton, perhaps best remembered as untalented bugler Hannibal Dobbs in 1960s sitcom “F Troop,” died April 7, at his home here of Parkinson’s disease complications. He was 84.

Hampton had a long career in film and television before retiring to his native Texas, including roles in “The Longest Yard,” “The China Syndrome, “Condorman,” “Teen Wolf,” “Teen Wolf Too” and “Sling Blade.”

MSTies will remember his role as Lew Price in the movie in episode K19- HANGAR 18.

    I definitely knew him from Condorman. Watched that so much growing up, and I definitely appreciated him in Teen Wolf and Hangar 18. RIP

    Such a familiar face to old tv show fans. And of course Teen Wolf.
