Of Dick Van Dyke's many talents, the most remarkable may be the moment you think about him, you smile.
The affable actor, singer and dancer has that effect on audiences. His colleagues think highly of him, too. They're bestowing upon him the Life Achievement Award at the 19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, airing live on TNT and TBS Sunday, Jan. 27.
Although his former co-star Mary Tyler Moore took this honor last year, Van Dyke says, "It never occurred to me I might be next. It was a total surprise to me. I found out a couple of months ago. They told me, and I just couldn't believe it. It was another surprise in a career of surprises."
Few people realize that Van Dyke, 87, started with Walter Cronkite. Van Dyke wouldn't come right out and say he was proud of his career, which continues with his singing quartet, The Vantastix. »
