Hugh, 32, son of the series’ star, Carroll O’Connor, ended up doing just that to himself and his family. Thanks in part to 16 years of drug and substance abuse, the younger O’Connor committed suicide March 28, shortly after calling his father for the last time.Even the title of the movie, “Grow Old Along With Me,” strikes a nerve. And a plot resolution may be especially painful for Carroll O’Connor, who won an Emmy for his portrayal of Sheriff Bill Gillespie, even though it’s evident the movie was made long before Hugh’s death.While Hugh’s suicide casts a pall over “In the Heat of the Night” (8 p.m, WBBM-Ch. 2), his drug use isn’t the only controversy to hit the show.Howard Rollins, who played Detective Virgil Tibbs in the series based on the Oscar-winning movie, ran into the law in Georgia (where the show was filmed) repeatedly because of drug use. He served a few months in jail as a result, and eventually was written out of the series, to be replaced by Carl Weathers (Apollo Creed in the “Rocky” movies) as new Police Chief Hampton Forbes.The show itself had an interesting life. It premiered in 1988 on NBC, but when the network wanted shows that would attract a younger audience, “Heat” and “Matlock” were cast off, even though both were doing fine in the ratings. “Heat” moved to CBS in 1992, where for a time it beat NBC shows slotted against it. This season “Heat” came back in the form of a string of TV movies.For years, I was unaware that Hugh O’Connor was Carroll’s son. Since it was shot in Georgia, I assumed he was just a Southern actor who was hired to play Jamison, the Sparta homeboy who became a cop in that fictional city’s police department. I guess his Southern accent was better than his father’s.Hugh never really had much of a career, and what he did have was because of his father, who also served as “Heat’s” co-executive producer, director and writer. His acting debut was in “Brass,” a 1985 TV movie starring his father as New York City’s chief of detectives. For years Hugh was a behind-the-scenes production worker in show business.”In the Heat of the Night” was always a decent cop show, one that bypassed senseless violence in favor of dramatic impact. Tuesday’s episode caps a nice, successful run, but O’Connor’s death serves as an unfortunate footnote.- Give a hoot: John Randolph didn’t figure there would be this much of a fuss.He had a scene in the pilot episode of NBC’s “ER,” playing a man whose wife died in the emergency room of a Chicago hospital. One of the last things he did for her was tenderly, emotionally sing “That Old Black Magic” while a crowded ER staff stood motionless.

Rob Reiner said in a 2014 interview about his on- and off-screen chemistry with O’Connor, “We did over 200 shows in front of a live audience. So I learned a lot about what audiences like, what they don’t like, how stories are structured. I would spend a lot of time in the writing room and I actually wrote some scripts. And from Carroll O’Connor I learned a lot about how you perform and how important the script and story are for the actors. So the actor doesn’t have to push things. You can let the story and the dialogue support you if it’s good. I had great people around me and I took from all the people who were around.” He also stated, when he compared Carroll O’Connor’s character to his acting mentor’s real-life persona: “Carroll O’Connor brought his humanity to the character even though he had these abhorrent views. He’s still a feeling, human being. He loved his wife even though he acted the way he did, and he loved his daughter. Those things come out. I don’t think anybody’s all good or all bad.”

It was a bittersweet victory for Carroll O’Connor and his wife, Nancy: On fan. 11, 40-year-old Harry Thomas Perzigian—whom O’Connor has publicly implicated in the suicide last March 28 of his drug-addicted son Hugh—was convicted in a Santa Monica court of possessing and furnishing cocaine. After two days of testimony, the judge in the nonjury trial, Richard Neidorf took just minutes to find Perzigian guilty of the crimes, which together carry a maximum penalty of one year in prison. “Hugh was an addict, probably without hope,” O’Connor said of his son after the trial. He was an actor best known as Lt. Lonnie Jamison on O’Connor’s TV series In the Heat of the Night. “Harry kept feeding him this stuff. We feel this guy indirectly was the cause of our loss.”
