Superman Actor Jackie Cooper Dead at 88

Actor Jackie Cooper has passed away after a full, varied career: A child acting sensation who appeared in Our Gang shorts and earned a Best Actor Oscar nomination at age 9 for the film Skippy — still a record in that category — Cooper found success later in life as a development executive, though he was later coaxed in front of the camera again to play Daily Planet editor Perry White in the Superman films starring Christopher Reeve. He was 88. [People]
