Shadows of the Night

8/18/2009 2:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The 84-year-old resurfaced at some event in New Jersey this weekend, looking unperturbed.

On his official website, Jonathan sells autographed photos of himself for $25 (shipping included).

I think Mr. Frid looks fantastic for his age! It's unfortunate that many people don't know the tremendous impact he had on millions of viewers. The word "iconic" truly applies to his portrayal of the almost 200 year old vampire Barnabas Collins on Dark Shadows. I can't wait to see Johnny Depp play Barnabas Collins in Tim Burton's directed new Dark Shadows movie.

Be careful of the $25 photo offer. The guy who runs the website, Mark Lawrence, from Canada, has not responded to a query from Paypal regarding the purchase of one said "autographed photo". All he's gotta do is say they've been busy (he and Frid), but ignoring a transaction is not a good thing. Jon does look excellent, however!

By the looks of that mouthpiece, I think they caught Barnabas in the middle of selling "Time Shares" over the phone.

Went to Catholic School and the nuns strictly forbade us watching Dark Shadows. So of course, we all literealy ran home after school to watch it as all others had said. I wanted to be Anjelique! Whatever happened to Quentin? Now he was creepy!

Nice to see Barnabis Collins works for NASA.

Maybe he helped fake the moon landing by biting Sally Ride's ass.

Does he still have an agent ? Is it just me or could he get a guest shot or worked into True Blood ? The Soprano's sure pulled that off ?

Barnabus was the man. Back in the day, monster roles like his were filled with ugly real people and not sissy boys like in Twilight.

Not trying to kill this man off, but daammmmn I thought this man was resting in his real coffin. I used to watch Dark Shadows everyday after school back in the 60's. It used to come on after 3:00 p.m. Wow!!! he really looks good. I guess all that biting paid off.
