Jerry Doyle, ‘Babylon 5’ Star, Died of Chronic Alcoholism, Coroner Says

Actor and radio host was found unresponsive in his Las Vegas home in July

Jerry Doyle, the “Babylon 5” actor and founder of the news platform EpicTimes, died as the result of chronic alcoholism, Clark County, Nevada, coroner ​​John Fudenberg told TheWrap on Wednesday.

Doyle, who died at age 60 on July 27, died from complications from chronic alcoholism. His manner of death was deemed natural.

The actor, whose credits also included “Moonlighting,” NYPD Blue,” “JAG” and “Beverly Hills, 90210,” was found unresponsive in his Las Vegas home on July 27.

In addition to his acting career, Doyle was also the host of a nationally syndicated radio program, “The Jerry Doyle Show,” on Talk Radio Network.

Doyle played security officer Michael Garibaldi on “Babylon 5,” which ran for five seasons until 1998.

Doyle ran as the Republican candidate for California’s 24th Congressional District in 2000 and wrote a book published in 2009 called “Have You Seen My Country Lately? America’s Wake-Up Call.”

“He was funny, and dangerous, and loyal, and a prankster, and a pain in the ass; he was gentle and cynical and hardened and insightful and sometimes as dense as a picket fence … and his passing is a profound loss to everyone who knew him, especially those of us who fought beside him in the trenches of ‘Babylon 5,'” show creator J. Michael Straczynski wrote in a blog post following Doyle’s death.

“It is another loss in a string of losses that I cannot understand. Of the main cast, we have lost Richard Biggs, Michael O’Hare, Andreas Katsulas, Jeff Conaway and now Jerry Doyle, and I’m goddamned tired of it.”
