Schwarzenegger Pays Tribute To 'Idol' Parker

Action man-turned-California Governor ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER has paid tribute to beloved U.S. TV star FESS PARKER, who died on Thursday (18Mar10).
The actor, who played both Davy Crockett and Daniel Boone on TV, passed away of natural causes, aged 85.
Schwarzenegger was devastated to hear the sad news - because Parker was "inspirational" to him from a young age.
He tells ETOnline.com, "Fess Parker has been a role model and idol of mine since I first saw him on the big screen - he is a true Hollywood legend. As a talented actor and successful businessman, he was an inspirational Californian whose contributions to our state will be remembered forever.
"As we reflect back on a life lived to its fullest, (wife) Maria (Shriver) and I send our thoughts and prayers to Fess' family, friends and loved ones."
