Interview: Actor Paul Dooley of ‘Breaking Away,’ ‘Sixteen Candles’

21 July 2016 10:25 AM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – If there ever was a quintessential “Dad” in movies of the last generation, it would have to be Paul Dooley. The comedian and character actor is best known for portraying the patriarch in “Breaking Away” (1979) and “Sixteen Candles” (1984), but was also in director’s Robert Altman’s ‘ensemble’ and has had a stellar career.

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 (story below), before getting 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.”

Garry Marshall, Director/Producer/Actor, Dead At Age 81; "Happy Days" And "Pretty Woman" Among His Hits

20 July 2016 8:57 AM, PDT | Cinemaretro.com | See recent CinemaRetro news »

By Lee Pfeiffer

Garry Marshall, the man who helped create iconic sitcoms such as "Happy Days", "Laverne & Shirley" and "Mork & Mindy", has died at age 81. Greatly beloved in the entertainment industry, Marshall helped kick many actors' careers into overdrive including Julia Roberts, Ron Howard, Henry Winkler and Robin Williams.  He also adapted Neil Simon's stage and screen hit "The Odd Couple" into a long-running TV series starring Tony Randall and Jack Klugman. He grew up in a modest home in the Bronx and never lost his almost stereotypical "New Yawk" accent. Marshall became a writer on some classic TV series of the 1960s including "The Dick Van Dyke Show", The Lucy Show" and "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson". He even became a prolific actor graduating from an un-billed role in "Goldfinger" to some juicy character parts in major films. Marshall would go on to direct features himself including »

Garry Marshall, ‘Happy Days’ Creator and ‘Pretty Woman’ Director, Dies at 81

19 July 2016 9:55 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Befitting his legacy as a comedy icon, Garry Marshall was busy working up until the end of his life.

Marshall died Tuesday due to pneumonia complications. He was 81.

Most recently, Marshall proudly served as an executive consultant on CBS’ “The Odd Couple” revival, now heading into its third season. Marshall, who turned the Neil Simon play into a hit ABC sitcom in the early 1970s, spent the past two years giving advice and working with the show’s producers. Earlier this year, he even appeared on camera as Walter Madison, Oscar’s (Matthew Perry) father.

“I keep creating,” Marshall told us in 2015 at the Television Critics Assn. press tour. “I’m still pitching shows, as many people are,” he said, referring to a show he had in the works at the time about triplets. “What’s exciting is when the network gets behind it. Here, CBS is behind [the ‘Odd Couple’ revival].”

Appreciating Garry Marshall, a Giant Whose Work Revealed His Big Heart

19 July 2016 9:22 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

It’s unclear what we’ve done to make the universe angry, but Death keeps taking legends from us: David Bowie, Prince, and now Garry Marshall. Marshall is gone at age 81.

Marshall did far more than create hit shows and cast actors who went on to be enormously influential in their own rights. He also appeared in a host of movies and films, always giving off the vibe of your cool, understanding, funny uncle, a guy who is game for just about anything and always encouraging. Who can say they worked on “The Dick Van Dyke Show,” one of the foundational shows of television, and also voiced a character on “BoJack Horseman” and made appearances on “Louie”? It’s not just that Marshall wanted to stay relevant. He understood that those shows boast the same kind of finely honed humanism that was at the core of his best work.

Marshall went from being TV writer to creating sitcoms that touched the funny bones of the 1970s generation and directing films that were watched over and over: “Happy Days” helped start a nostalgia craze that has arguably never abated, while “Mork and Mindy” had a psychedelically goofy quality that catapulted Robin Williams to fame and made rainbow suspenders an icon of their era. “Pretty Woman” likewise cemented Julia Roberts’ stardom, while “The Princess Diaries” made Anne Hathaway a teen favorite.

Happy Days” star Henry Winkler credited him for launching his career, tweeting “Thank you for my professional life. »
