LOS ANGELES (AP) _ Jacques Aubuchon, an actor who appeared on Broadway, in ″McHale’s Navy″ and more than 300 other television shows and in two dozen films, has died. He was 67.

Aubuchon died Saturday, said his daughter-in-law, Joanna Lipari Aubuchon.

His first Broadway stage credit was as the sewer man in ″The Madwoman of Chaillot.″ He went on to appear in such plays as ″In the Matter of J. Robert Oppenheimer.″

His television portrayals ranged from a loincloth-clad native chief in ″McHale’s Navy″ to the hefty detective Lt. Jules Maurola in the 1970 series ″Paris 7000,″ which starred George Hamilton.

His films included ″The Silver Chalice,″ as the Emperor Nero, ″Thunder Road,″ ″McHale’s Navy Joins the Air Force″ and ″The Hoax.″

In 1981, he starred in what 20th Century Fox said was the first film ever made for pay TV, a pilot for a series called ″The Public’s Polinsky,″ about a public defender.

Later, he wrote plays. Aubuchon also did hundreds of TV commercials.

He is survived by his wife, Denise, two sons, one daughter and one grandchild.
