Harry Hamlin plays Aaron Echolls, an Oscar -winning A-list actor and is the main antagonist during the season 1 finale. At the beginning of the series, Aaron is married to his second wife Lynn, with whom he has a son Logan. He adopted his daughter Trina while married to his previous wife. Aaron has numerous female fans, due to his impressive physique and good looks. While Aaron is beloved by the American public, in real life he is very different. Aaron cheats on his wife, and easily angered, he physically abuses Logan, but tolerates Trina. Aaron quits acting when Lynn commits suicide, and tries to reconcile with Logan and Trina. Upon learning that Trina is being physically abused by her boyfriend, he beats the boy, threatening more if the boy ever returned. When Veronica exposes him as the man who killed Lilly, Aaron is indicted and held without bail. Logan visits his father in a holding cell after new evidence implicates Logan in a murder case. Aaron claims that he is innocent, and tries to convince his son that he had been wrongfully accused. Logan, who despises his father, does not believe Aaron's story, but recognizes that the evidence against Aaron is circumstantial at best. Later, Kendall visits Aaron in prison, and he agrees to invest in Phoenix Land Trust if she gets some of Duncan's hair. Aaron uses the hair to plant false evidence implying Duncan committed the crime, and Aaron is acquitted. He goes to the Neptune Grand and has sex with Kendall. While she is in the shower, Clarence Wiedman appears and kills Aaron with a silenced pistol on the orders of Duncan.
From 1998 to 2010, Beltre put up roughly 52 WAR. In his six seasons since then, he’s added another 38 WAR. Although he’s in his age-38 season, he was worth more than 6 WAR just last year, and projection systems like ZIPS and Steamer forecasted another 3 to 4 in 2017. (Beltre missed nearly two months to start the season with a calf injury, which is a real risk of age, but he’s been great since returning and should still reach those projections.) If Beltre sticks around another four seasons or so (through age 41), he should be able to creep his second-career WAR total into the mid-to-high 40s.
