Interview: Actor Paul Dooley on Getting to Portray Dad

Chicago – After he reigned as the father in the classic 1979 film “Breaking Away,” actor Paul Dooley suddenly became everyone’s Dad – and by everyone that meant Molly Ringwald (“Sixteen Candles”), Julia Roberts (“Runaway Bride”) and Helen Hunt (“Mad About You”). He tells all in Part Two of a comprehensive interview.

The former “Paul Brown’ was born in West Virginia, and studied acting at West Virginia University, before heading to New York City and a new career as Paul Dooley. He did stage work, stand-up comedy and the New York City version of The Second City. He got his big break in the original stage version of “The Odd Couple” in 1965, directed by the legendary Mike Nichols. While working the stage, he appeared in a number of commercials, eventually moving to Los Angeles to “be where the action is.”

Silent cinema decidedly prefers the more easily trained and exhibited canine, with 1907’s surreal favorite Les chiens savants as a certain kind of cruel pinnacle. For the cats, Chris Marker, already the presiding figure over so much in 20th century art, I think we can easily claim is the cine-laureate. One need not know

'New Girl' cast mocks Max Greenfield's nipples. Plus, scoop from PaleyFest the audience Didn't get to hear

'New Girl' cast mocks Max Greenfield's nipples. Plus, scoop from PaleyFest the audience Didn't get to hear
“We don’t have that many continuing stories, so we can’t reveal that much,” executive producer Jake Kasdan admitted near the start of Monday night’s New Girl panel during the annual PaleyFest in Los Angeles.

The result? An entertaining and laugh-filled panel that was much like an episode of New Girl. There was dancing (thanks, Jake Johnson!), awkward glances, a Douchebag Jar (to which Max Greenfield contributed a wad of cash), Zooey Deschanel pretending to eat like a turtle, little talk of the few overarching plots on the series, and a hearty collection of quotable moments.
