"He was married to the late actress" doesn't sound right to me - it seems to be suggesting she was dead while they were married. Bmalee 02:02, 7 March 2007 (UTC)
Fair use rationale for Image:DavidMcCallum NCIS.JPG
Image:DavidMcCallum NCIS.JPG is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.
Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
If there is other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you. BetacommandBot 11:09, 27 October 2007 (UTC)
Dead Links above, so I expect it was deleted(5 years ago) Page should include a NCIS "era" picture of him, since to younger people that is how they recognize him. Wfoj2 (talk) 21:17, 13 August 2012 (UTC)
I've been trying to flesh out and clean up the article a bit. A major problem is the lack of references in the text. The best online source for information on McCallum is 'David McCallum Fans Online'. They have a huge bank of good-quality material in their 'Words' section, mostly taken from newspapers and magazines and dating from the 60s right through to the present. I reckon most of the facts contained in this wikipedia article could be referenced to articles there. The only problem is that all the articles seem to have an identical URL: http://www.davidmccallumfansonline.com/newdavid1.htm. When you use this as a refernece in wikipedia and try to follow the link back to the article it directs you to the website homepage not the article in question. This is a little beyond my technical know-how. Does anyone know if it is possible to link to the individual articles in the 'Words' section of the 'David McCallum Fans Online' website, rather than just its homepage? Thanks!

As per Wikipedia is not a collection of lists, I have reduced the Filmography section of to just the films that have Wikipedia articles, and renamed it to Selected filmography ... people can click the IMDb External link that follows the section to see the subject's full filmography with links to information about each of their films.
I have also used [[19xx in film|19xx]] tags for the years of the films, since [[19xx]] has little encyclopedic value.
Anonymous edits without comments may be reverted by anyone.
I am placing this boilerplate message on this Discussion page before I actually make the changes, so that I can just put
"see Discussion page" in the edit summary, and hopefully not have my edit summarily reverted as vandalism by Some Other Editor.
There was an entire episode of the A-Team (from the season when Robert Vaughn had joined the cast) which was full of UNCLE references, since David McCallum was the episode's guest star. Would that considered noteworthy enough? --MikeZ (talk) 09:36, 1 September 2010 (UTC)
In the fourth season episode 5 when Sally is caught masturbating while watching a David McCallum scene. In the commentary Matthew Weiner explains the use of McCallum as being popular among adolescents because he is "non-threatening" and handsome". He then goes on to say (incorrectly) that McCallum "just passed away". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 07:19, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
There is not a word about his notorious Right Wing views, nor the fact that he boasted about leaving the UK to avoiding paying UK tax. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 01:52, 8 November 2013 (UTC)
Diablo 3:RoS voicework
I believe David McCallum does the voice work for the Grand Templar in the Reaper of Souls expansion for Diablo 3. The following image, taken ingame during the credits, seems to confirm this: http://imgur.com/CmZWmA7 Halcónico (talk) 23:08, 7 April 2014 (UTC)
