George Segal Recalls Best Kisser From Rom-Com Heyday

14 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Call it what you will: hype, puffery, marketing, buzz.

Nearing 83, actor George Segal has been around long enough to understand how this game is played. So when he was offered the chance to get a star on the Walk of Fame on Feb. 14, Segal figured, “Why not?”

“This is good publicity for ‘The Goldbergs’,” he says. “It’s all ballyhoo. I respect the ballyhoo.”

Now in its fourth season, “The Goldbergs,” Adam F. Goldberg’s ode to growing up in 1980s Philadelphia, has provided a continued platform for Segal, whose career is in its seventh decade. What is the secret to his longevity?

“It beats the shit out of me,” Segal says with a laugh. “I’m just so lucky to still be alive.”

The Walk of Fame ceremony is the day after his 83rd birthday. “I’ve always considered myself to be a lucky person. When I’m asked about the ups and downs of my »

10 Crucial George Segal Roles Beyond ‘The Goldbergs’

14 February 2017 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

George Segal rode talent and a hot streak to the top of the movie heap from the mid-1960s into the 1980s. If you only know Segal for his popular TV series “Just Shoot Me” and “The Goldbergs,” here are crucial earlier roles to check out.

King Rat (1965), dir. Bryan Forbes:

This was a break-out role for Segal, a prestigious WWII drama with a mostly British cast that included John Mills, Tom Courtenay, James Fox, Patrick O’Neal, and Denholm Elliott. Segal played a charismatically amoral American sharpie, scrambling to maintain his place at the top of the black-market heap in a Japanese prison camp.

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966), dir. Mike Nichols:

Segal earned his lone Oscar nomination for this role, in Nichols’ adaptation of Edward Albee’s stinging marital drama. He brought brains and vulnerability as a college professor who, with his mousy wife (Sandy Dennis »

To Horror, with Love: Cinema’s Biggest Genre Fans – Dave and Chainsaw from Summer School (1987)

13 February 2017 11:39 AM, PST | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

[Hello, readers! With Valentine's Day just around the corner, we here at Daily Dead thought it would be fun to do things a little different this year. We're putting the spotlight on our favorite horror-loving characters from genre cinema, people who have represented our own fandom on screen and, in many cases, helped bring our passion for horror into the mainstream. Be sure to check back here on Daily Dead every day through Valentine's Day for our tributes to some of the greatest horror fans to ever grace the big screen.]

Knowing the horror genre inside and out can help you determine if your next-door neighbor is really a vampire (or if your mom has a date with a bloodsucker), and it can also help you stay one step ahead of a slasher with a phone fetish. But for two teenagers who absolutely adore The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, love of the genre helps them get through something more terrifying than any undead creature with a crimson diet or weapon-wielding maniac in Woodsboro. The monster they face is all too real: summer school.

From the moment we meet Dave Frazier (Gary Riley) and Francis “Chainsaw” Gremp (Dean Cameron) in Carl Reiner's 1987 comedy, Summer School, we know they are the real deal when it comes to horror. The insides of their school lockers are plastered with photos of Freddy Krueger, Leatherface, and the “machete zombie” from Dawn of the Dead. Prosthetic »

John Larroquette of TNT’s ‘The Librarians’ Didn’t Start Out as an Actor

9 February 2017 9:00 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Actor John Larroquette didn’t start out in the acting business . In fact, he was a DJ in New Orleans in the 1960s, then worked at a San Diego record label, and it was there that acting drew his passion. He moved to Los Angeles in 1974 and has been steadily employed by the theater, TV, and films ever since. He’s won Emmys, and a Tony for “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” Larroquette can be seen in TNT’s action adventure series “The Librarians.” But in 1974, Larroquette had just arrived in L.A., didn’t have an agent, but landed a role in “The Crucible” at the Odyssey Theater, which launched his own Hollywood odyssey.

What was it like in L.A. in 1974 for an aspiring actor?

There was a casting of “The Crucible” at a theater at Santa Monica and Bundy. Late summer in ’74. It was an open audition and I had just »

Remembering Mary Tyler Moore: Not Only ‘Brilliantly Funny,’ but Vulnerable

31 January 2017 10:45 AM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

About halfway through the seven-season run of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” a week came when Moore had to spend a few days in the hospital for a minor procedure.

Work on the CBS comedy continued Monday through Thursday, with co-star Betty White subbing for Moore during the table read, script revisions, and blocking. By Friday, Moore was back on the CBS Radford lot for the final run-through and taping — and she nailed every line and set-up with ease.

“She was perfect,” recalls Jay Sandrich, who directed 119 of the 168 episodes of “Mary Tyler Moore” during its 1970-77 run.

Sandrich says his memory of that week came back to him as he grappled with the news of her death Jan. 25 at the age of 80.

The depth of Moore’s understanding of her TV alter-ego, the plucky Mary Richards, was a gift to everyone who worked on the show. “Everybody loved her,” Sandrich »

26 January 2017 7:34 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »
