Richard Dreyfuss to Guest Star on Jason Alexander Audience Network Series ‘Hit the Road’

10 July 2017 7:17 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Academy Award winner Richard Dreyfuss will guest star on the upcoming Jason Alexander Audience Network comedy series “Hit the Road,” Variety has learned.

Dreyfuss will play James, Alexander’s character’s father. He is described as “a gruff, grizzled dysfunctional jerk of a dad who doesn’t have a single kind word to say about his son.” Dreyfuss won the Academy Award for Best Actor for his role in “The Goodbye Girl,” and was nominated for the same award for his role in “Mr. Holland’s Opus.” His other notable film roles include “Cl0se Encounters of the Third Kind,” “Jaws,” “American Graffiti,” and “Stand by Me.” On the television side, he recently starred in the ABC miniseries “Madoff”–based on the true story of the Bernie Madoff’s $65 billion Ponzi scheme–as well as the Fox event series “Shots Fired.”

He is repped by Apa. See a photo of Dreyfuss and Alexander on set below.

Why Richard Dreyfuss Keeps His Oscar in His Fridge

22 June 2017 9:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Forget the fireplace or the safe deposit box, Richard Dreyfuss has found a more unique place to store his Oscar that works for it — and other items like milk, eggs and ketchup.

The veteran star, who took home a best actor statuette in 1978 for his work in The Goodbye Girl, tells THR that he keeps the award in the refrigerator. "I don't like to brag, but I like everyone to know about it," laughs the 69-year-old. "Sooner or later, I know they are all going to go to the refrigerator."

Powers Boothe (1948-2017)

15 May 2017 7:24 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Powers Boothe with his daughter Parisse (both acted in Deadwood) at a 2006 Emmy partyThe Emmy winning character actor Powers Boothe, best known for screen villains on TV (Deadwood, Nashville) and in movies (Sin City, Tombstone) died yesterday morning in his sleep from natural causes. After Shakespearean work on stage after college, his screen career began with "bad Shakespeare" as part of the Richard III play within the Oscar nominated comedy The Goodbye Girl (1977) in which he mostly lays like a corpse on a table while Dreyfus overacts the hunchback around him. The on camera career stretched for nearly another 40 years ending with the recurring baddie role as one of Hydra's top leaders  "Gideon Malick" on  the third season of Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. (2015/2016).  

The native Texan was 68 years old and is survived by his wife of 48 years (they married in college before his acting career began) and their two children. »

It Came From The Tube: The Babysitter (1980)

7 May 2017 8:28 AM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

So far in this column, the default setting for TV horror has been the supernatural; usually ghosts (vengeful division), and a cult or two (whether it be Satan or crops). However, I would be remiss if I didn’t tend to any unusual domestic activities on a more human scale. This brings us to The Babysitter (1980), Peter Medak’s chilling tale of live-in help with some serious boundary issues. She doesn’t do windows, but she will do away with you and your family.

Originally airing on Friday, November 28th, 1980 as part of the ABC Friday Night Movie, The Babysitter as well as NBC’s Friday Night at the Movies would get trounced by CBS’ top rated shows The Dukes of Hazzard and Dallas, but those were number two and one in the land, so nobody was breaking through that block, not even the nanny from Hell.
