Mary Willard, Comedy Playwright & Wife Of Fred Willard, Dead At 71

  • Deadline
Mary Willard, playwright, TV writer and wife of four-time Emmy nominee Fred Willard, has died at the age of 71.

Willard died on July 13, but news of her death was recently made public.

Champion is the one word that comes to mind when remembering Mary Willard and she wasn’t just Fred Willard’s best cheerleader, but she also mentored and nurtured a number of creative comedic writers and actors through the Willards’ Los Angeles-based comedy sketch group The Mohos over the last two-plus decades (which anecdotally I was a part of some years ago).

‘Let’s put on a show’ was an unofficial mantra, and within less than two-weeks time, the troupe would pull wigs out of the closet and brush up pages for performances at the Io West and The Bang Theater and even as far as the Inland Empire. Those trying out sketches at Mohos had the opportunity

1968: Agnes Nixon's One Life to Live premiered on ABC."All true histories contain instruction; though, in some, the treasure may be hard to find, and when found, so trivial in quantity that the dry, shrivelled kernel scarcely compensates for the trouble of cracking the nut."

Yes, That Was Greg Evigan Playing Jim Harvey on General Hospital!

Viewers of General Hospital were taken by surprise when they tuned in to watch the Dec. 3 episode and saw a very familiar face — Greg Evigan was playing Jim Harvey, the head of Niagara Equities. The land developer was initially looking to set up a construction project in Port Charles, but his secret plans — as well as his mysterious past connection to Franco and Drew — made him a major player on the soap! Evigan will be immediately recognizable to television viewers from his role as Billie Joe McKay (opposite a chimpanzee!) in the ‘70s series B.J. And The Bear as well as Joey Harris on the popular ‘80s sitcom My Two Dads opposite Paul Reiser. He also starred in the series P.S. I Luv You and Tek War as well as appearing in other primetime shows like Dallas, Touched By An Angel, and Jag. His most recent TV acting role

Image Source: Netflix You may have noticed that a couple of stars from the '80s and '90s joined Stranger Things season two. First there's Sean Astin, of The Goonies and Rudy fame, as Bob the Brain.

'Terror Birds' Attack in Blood Soaked Sneak Peek | Exclusive

'Terror Birds' Attack in Blood Soaked Sneak Peek | Exclusive
Bird-watching isn't normally the most dangerous of activities, but when the birds in question are massive and carnivorous, things could get messy. That's exactly what happens in our exclusive clip from Mar Vista Entertainment's Terror Birds, arriving on VOD formats March 8. This scene shows that these ten-foot birds are not to be trifled with, as a group of college students try to escape with their lives.

While funding an archaeological site in the Caribbean, Harvey Sullivan (Greg Evigan) learns of a legend about monstrous birds living on two remote, uninhabited islands. Making the journey to investigate, he discovers a ten-foot bird on each island, birds that belong to the species titanis-large, flightless, carnivorous birds long thought to be extinct by nearly two million years and called Terror Birds. Capturing the birds, Harvey brings them to East Texas to a ranch that contains an aviary.

He hires paleontologist, Denise Slater (Leslie Easterbrook), to research the birds.

Then I saw it was called "Mis Dos Padres," a Mexican My Two Dads, if you will, and I was really hopeful the post-apocalyptic versions of Paul Reiser and Greg Evigan were going to sweep us away to a land of focused hope.

VH1 Signs Eddie Cibrian to a Reality Show and an “Exorcist” TV Series


VH1 has ordered a reality series that would follow Eddie Cibrian and LeAnn Rimes. I might be tempted to tune in and hit the fast forward button until I see Cibrian in some sort of state of undress, but I’m not particularly interested in their tabloid drama.

Or maybe there’s an Eddie Cibrian calendar I can buy instead.

Deadline reports that NBC has ordered a comedy pilot from Happy Endings creator David Caspe. Mad About You, Marry Me follows a young newlywed couple who quickly realize marriage is harder than they expected. I’m starting to detect some familiar themes.

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘s Glenn Howerton will appear in a multi-episode arc on The Mindy Project, according to E! Online. There are some minor spoilers in Howerton’s role.

'Ghost Shark,' starring Mackenzie Rosman and Richard Moll, coming to Syfy

Were you a part of the delightful cultural phenomenon on Twitter Thursday, July 11 when Syfy aired its original movie "Sharknado"? Want to do it again?

"Ghost Shark" is coming your way Thursday, Aug. 22 at 9 p.m. Et/Pt on Syfy -- "a great white shark is tortured and killed by a fisherman, then returns from the dead, exacting vengeance on all humans."

The Horror Chick's 11 Favorite Douchebags of Horror

While they may not necessarily be the villains and get all the glory, there's something to be said for the douchebag characters of the horror genre- they often add to the drama of any given situation, they generally complicate things and they make it oh, so fun to hate them.

That being said, I thought it might be kind of fun to look back at some of my favorite douchebag characters of the horror genre- past and present. The only rule? They aren't the film's "big bad." Be forewarned, though: If you haven't seen some of these films, this countdown may get a little spoiler-y for you.

So, in the immortal words of Kanye West, "Let's have a toast for the douchebags" and check out some of this writer's favorite unsavory characters in the horror genre of all time.

Metal Tornado – DVD Review

DVD Review

Metal Tornado

Directed by: Gordon Yang

Cast: Lou Diamond Phillips, Greg Evigan, Nicole deBoer

Running Time: 1 hr 30 mins

Rating: PG

Due Out: May 22, 2012

Plot: A failed attempt to harvest energy from solar flares creates a tornado in Pennsylvania that has a magnetic appetite.

Who’S It For?: If you don’t like science, this movie might be fun for you. It has tornadoes and people talking about magnets, but that’s just fluff in the larger scheme of Metal Tornado. The content of the movie is fine for families, though the amount of attention it will garner from anyone in your clan is not guaranteed.


An old roommate of mine constantly tries to defend M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening as an intentional B-movie, saying that the laughably corny film was made to be just that. Apparently, this is a defense that Shyamalan has used himself.

Metal Tornado (2012)

Directed by: Gordon Yang

Written by: Andrew Erin and Jason Bourque

Featuring: Lou Diamond Phillips, Nicole de Boer, Greg Evigan, Sophie Gendron

I live in an extraordinary time; I have had the rare privilege of being born at the exact right moment that would allow me to watch the rise, and fall, of Lou Diamond Phillip’s stardom.

Ever since I saw him at his height in Young Guns (almost as brilliant as the sequel, Young Guns II), just a scant few years after his portrayal of '50s rocker Ritchie Valens, I have secretly been saddened by his waning acting career.

I think it was 1999’s Bats that killed it. Or was it Walter Hill’s Supernova? Either way, it has never been the same. He’s gone the way of Judd Nelson and C. Thomas Howell. His latest starring role in Metal Tornado is perhaps his greatest B-movie role,
