Actor and Director Jackie Cooper Has Died [VIDEO]

Cooper is probably best known for playing Perry White, the editor of the “Daily Planet” newspaper, in the Christopher Reeve “Superman” movies.

Cooper started out as a child actor.  He was a member of the “Our Gang” / “Little Rascals” clan from 1929 to 1931.

(This was before the Spanky / Alfalfa / Buckwheat / Darla years.  He worked with the old-school rascals like Stymie, Farina and Chubsy Ubsy.)

Jackie also holds the record for the youngest person to ever have been nominated for the Best Actor Oscar.  He got the nod when he was just NINE YEARS OLD, for the 1931 film “Skippy”.

He continued acting in film and television through 1990.  In the ’70s, he won two Emmys as a DIRECTOR . . . for episodes of “M*A*S*H” and “The White Shadow”.

He also directed episodes of “Magnum P.I.”, “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”, “The Rockford Files” and “Cagney & Lacey”, among others.

And he served with the Navy in the South Pacific during World War 2.
