Mr. Everett was born in South Bend, Ind., and graduated from Wayne State University before moving to Los Angeles and becoming a contract player with MGM.

In perhaps his most memorable recent film role, Mr. Everett played an aging lothario who engages in a steamy audition with a young ingenue portrayed by Naomi Watts in director David Lynch’s “Mulholland Drive”.

Mr. Everett is survived by his two daughters, Katherine and Shannon, and six grandchildren. He was married to actress Shelby Grant for 45 years until her death last year.

Guilty plea entered in ‘19 Kids’ extortion case

An Iowa woman has pleaded guilty to attempting to extort the parent company of cable network TLC by threatening to reveal an alleged affair involving a cast member of the popular reality show “19 Kids and Counting.”

Teresa Hunt entered a guilty plea Wednesday to one count of extortion during a hearing in federal court in Davenport. Sentencing was scheduled for Nov. 9.

Prosecutors say Ms. Hunt sent letters to TLC’s parent company, Discovery Communications Inc., claiming to have photographs of a cast member of “19 Kids and Counting” that would prove an inappropriate sexual relationship. The show follows Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their 19 children.

Prosecutors say Ms. Hunt demanded Discovery either cancel the show or pay her $10,000, or else she would leak the photos to a tabloid.
