Michael Pataki who played the memorable baddie J.C. in "Sidehackers", Sgt Ward in "It lives by Night" , and Tony in "Superdome" , died April 15 of cancer at age 72. A prolific character actor Pataki appeared on numerous shows including Star Trek TOS and TNG, Happy Days The Jeffersons, Fall Guy, and My Favorite Martian.
That's too bad. He was one of the most fun parts of Sidehackers, in my opinion, and a reason it remains one of my favorite MST3K episodes. Yeah, the character was a creep, but he played it in a fun, over-the-top kind of way. Although, I will admit, I have to be in the right mood for that episode.
Rest well, sir.
Well anyway, hi there, folks. You know, I'd been having trouble with velvet leaf, uh, cutworm and, uh, foxtail and, well, that's when the representative from Monsanto came out to my farm. He recommended a pre-emergent, inferral mixture of Lorsban with Atrazine in a tank mix and I told him to get off my land. - Farmer Joel

I still think his performance in Sidehackers was one of the best in any movie MST3K riffed. And he was a klingon in the Star Trek episode The Trouble With Tribbles. We will miss thee. R. I. P.
