Paul Reiser on Early Role in ‘Diner’ and Working With Will Smith in ‘Concussion’

18 March 2016 10:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Paul Reiser has a slew of movies coming out this year, including “War on Everyone,” “The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea,” “The Darkness” and “Joshy.” Also upcoming: the second season of Amazon’s “Red Oaks” plus the May 3 release of the “Mad About You” boxed set, with all 164 episodes. The standup comic was first mentioned in Variety on March 5, 1981, when he was cast in Barry Levinson’s “Diner.”

What was “Diner” like?

It was my first job in show business. It was a crazy circumstance. A friend of mine was going in for an audition, and I was waiting for him, when casting director Ellen Chenoweth asked if I had a [headshot], and I said no. I went back the next day with a picture; next thing I know, I was in a movie. It was a great way to start a career — highly regarded director, (and the movie was) so well received. »
