Trivia (6)

For about two years in late 1970s, he played "Grimsley", a ghoul-like figure who hosted Saturday night horror movies on Channel 9 (then KHJ-TV) in Los Angeles. During commercial breaks, Grimsley would make fun of the movies. This was easy, since most of the movies were low-budget. He became popular enough to make appearances at local sci-fi/horror conventions and Magic Mountain, a theme park north of Los Angeles. A line of Grimsley T-shirts also appeared. A few years later "Elvira, Mistress of the Dark", aka Cassandra Peterson, came on the air and did the same thing.
Son of director Norman Foster and actress Sally Blane.

Nephew of actor Ricardo Montalban.
