R.I.P. Actor Richard Kiel — James Bond Villain & ‘Twilight Zone’ Kanamit

R.I.P. Actor Richard Kiel — James Bond Villain & ‘Twilight Zone’ Kanamit
The towering actor who played the mercenary assassin Jaws in a pair of Roger Moore-era 007 movies and the enigmatic alien in one of the most famous episodes of The Twilight Zone died today. Richard Kiel would have turned 75 on Saturday. His agent of 35 years, Steven Stevens Sr, told Deadline that Kiel died this afternoon at St. Agnes Medical Center in Fresno, CA. The 7-foot-2 actor with the crooked smile got his start in early-1060s TV, appearing in such series as Laramie, Thriller and The Rifleman. He appeared in the 1962 sci-fi feature The Phantom Planet before landing the chilling Twilight Zone role. In “To Serve Man,” he played a representative of an advanced, giant alien race called the Kanamits, who alight on Earth amid what seems to be peace and good will. Kiel delivers a mysterious encrypted book to a meeting of the United Nations, and the episode soars from there.

With All These Sports Channels, Who’s Gonna Call the Games?

Talk to sports purists (especially old-timers), and many will trace gripes about the professional leagues back to two dreaded words: Expansion and dilution. To this contingent, everything was better when there were fewer teams, placing less of a drain on the talent pool.

While there are several mitigating factors in this discussion, there is one area where both expansion and dilution are clearly having a deleterious effect — sports television. And based on prevailing trends, the problem is only going to get worse.

The appetite for sports has already produced an environment in which a dizzying number of games are televised, each requiring its own broadcasting team (usually, a bombastic play-by-play guy, an ex-coach and/or ex-player color man, and a perky sideline reporter). On an average Saturday this September, there will be a few dozen college football games in every market, via Espn and its sundry companion channels, the major

Interview: Ed Asner Keeps Moving Forward in New Comedy ‘Let Go’

Chicago – Bring up the name Ed Asner, and immediately his legendary TV character Lou Grant comes to mind. Asner created the only TV character to successfully transition from a sitcom – “Mary Tyler Moore” – to the cutting-edge TV drama “Lou Grant.” But Asner has also been steadily working since those days, including his latest film “Let Go.”

Let Go” is a crazy quilt ensemble comedy, following the exploits of a parole officer (David Denman). One of his clients include Artie, portrayed by Ed Asner. The iconic TV and film actor gives a subtle late career performance as a small time robber who can’t understand why things change. There is a beautiful scene with Asner and actress Peggy McKay at the conclusion of the film, as Artie makes one last attempt at redemption. Ed Asner is no lion in winter, he is still roaring.

Released on DVD: Ed Asner as Artie

Playing in 'Cleveland'

Cleveland Brown is a good-hearted family man, on his second marriage, and madly in love with his wife. In that way and more, the animated character of "Family Guy" and now star of his own program, "The Cleveland Show," shares much in common with Mike Henry, the man who created and voices him. One thing they do not share in common is race; Cleveland is African-American, and Henry is, in his own words, "undoubtedly white." According to Richard Appel, who co-created and executive-produces the show with Henry and Seth MacFarlane, this led to a lot of fun in the audition room when they were casting Cleveland's wife, Donna. "Some of the actresses who came in had never seen 'Family Guy,' but even a lot of 'Family Guy' fans are not aware that Mike does the voice," Appel recalls. "So they would come in and assume Mike was just a producer,
