    John McMartin, 86, Broadway, TV, Film

    John McMartin, who originated the role of conflicted claustrophobic boyfriend "Oscar" in both the stage and film versions of SWEET CHARITY, starred in Sondheim's FOLLIES, a host of TV guest-starring spots and several other films, died July 6 at age 86 of cancer. Tall, still good-looking for his age, and still versatile, he continued to act until last year, when he appeared on THE UNBREAKABLE KIMMY SCHMIDT.
    Though nominated 5 times for the Tony over the years, Mr. McMartin never won. How much do you want to bet that they give his dead self an honorary Tony next time?
