Hector Elizondo Talks About Working on All 18 of Garry Marshall’s Movies

Hector Elizondo Talks About Working on All 18 of Garry Marshall’s Movies
The one staple of every Gary Marshall movie was a supporting role for Hector Elizondo. The two first met in 1978 and quickly became close friends and collaborators. With Marshall’s passing last week at the age of 81, Elizondo spoke to Variety’s Ramin Setoodeh about some of his favorite memories from their 18-movie partnership that started with 1982’s “Young Doctors in Love” and continued through last spring’s “Mother’s Day.”

Hector Elizondo: Garry Marshall didn’t say funny things. He said things funny. He had a way of looking at the world. A unique Garry sound. He didn’t like it when people made a big deal of little things. If you brought something to the table, he was open to it. The first thing he’d ask when a new actor came on set was, “Did you eat?” That was a big thing for him: “Get him some food!” You

Director/ writer/ actor Gary Marshall dies at age 81

On Tuesday July 19, Hollywood lost a giant in the world of comedy with the passing of beloved director/writer/producer/actor Gary Marshall at the age of 81. While most of the news outlets focused in on his considerable work in television (he practically owned Tuesday nights in the 1970’s with his “Happy Days” empire), this site would like to salute Mr. Marshall’s work on both sides of the camera.

After impressive writing credits on many of the classic sitcoms of the 1960’s, it was inevitable that the movie studios would tap him to contribute to several screenplays. The first was produced in 1968, a marriage comedy starring James Garner and Debbie Reynolds, How Sweet It Is. A youth-oriented romantic comedy starring Jacqueline Bisset, The Grasshopper, was released in 1970. TV triumphs quickly followed, so Marshall’s movie career was put on hold for more than a dozen years. 1982 was the year

  • CinemaRetro
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.

A Hologram For The King – Review

Usually when the Middle East shows up in modern films it’s the setting for dramas and thrillers. The troubled global “hot spot” has been the backdrop for “based on a true story” tales of the military with American Sniper and one of the first flicks to be released this year, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi. So it’s surprising that this region has been the setting for two comedies this year (Salmon Fishing In The Yeman tested the waters five years ago). And one big source of the humor is the culture clash when Americans arrive there. It’s the old “fish out of water” recipe for laughs. A couple of months ago, it was Tina Fey butting heads in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. And now arriving in Saudi Arabia is the affable everyman (really every-American-man) Tom Hanks, an actor familiar with that comedy trope, going back thirty years

Spot On!

On the Spot Broadway Comedy Club, NYC Monday nights, 8:00 Pm

In the olden days ("Tell us great-grandfather") there was vaudeville, where young performers could cut their teeth, playing on the various circuits all around the country. So where do emerging singers and comedians get their time before an audience in this strangest of all eras? Of course there's the web, but tweeting responses or comments below a YouTube video do not in my opinion constitute a flesh and blood audience--those hearty folk who make an effort to move their bodies into a performance space, and let a singer or comedian know in no uncertain terms if they've "got it."

Handsomely patrician actor, Nathan Armstrong took it upon himself to create a venue in which the energy and exuberance of those on the quest for stardom can indeed show what they go -- in abundance. On the Spot is a

Tammy – The Review

For those of you thinking, “Oh no, another reboot!”, just hold your horses. This new film is not a “re-imagining” of that story of the sweet, naive, fresh-faced young backwoods beauty introduced in the 1957 late show staple Tammy And The Bachelor which spawned a film and TV series and boasted an Oscar nominated top 40 title tune. We don’t hear a note of that pop standard, although that first film’s star, Debbie Reynolds, was almost in this new flick. Nope, 2014′s Tammy is this Summer’s starring vehicle for Melissa McCarthy, almost three years to the day of her star-making supporting (and Oscar-nominated) turn in the surprise smash hit Bridesmaids, Between her weekly job as half of TV’s “Mike & Molly”, she followed her 2011 film hit last year with Identity Thief and The Heat.
