Biographie: (Quelle: wikipedia)

David Coleman Dukes (June 6, 1945 – October 9, 2000) was an American character actor. He had a long career in films, appearing in 35. Dukes starred in the mini-series The Winds of War in the 1980s, and was a frequent television guest star, and appeared later in life in recurring roles on shows such as Pauly, Sisters and Dawson's Creek.

 

Life

Dukes was born in San Francisco, California, the son of a highway patrolman.[1] Dukes, and wife Carol Muske-Dukes, raised a son and a daughter.

Career

Dukes career in films encompassed 35 movies. Throughout the span of his career (1970s-1990s), he was often seen as a television guest star, notably as the man who attempted to rape Edith Bunker on All in the Family, and as a blind bully on Three's Company. During the 1980s, Dukes appeared in the dual miniseries The Winds of War and War and Remembrance. He received an Emmy nomination for best supporting actor for his role in The Josephine Baker Story (1991); and appeared as Arthur Miller in Norma Jean & Marilyn (1996). He was a regular in the first season of Sisters, playing the transvestite doctor husband of oldest sister, Alex (Swoosie Kurtz). Dukes character appeared as a recurring character in subsequent seasons. On Dawson's Creek, he had the recurring role of Mr. McPhee, the father to Jack (Kerr Smith) and Andie (Meredith Monroe) from the second through fourth seasons.

Theater

Dukes had considerable stage experience, first appearing on Broadway in 1971. He later appeared in a revival of Molière's The School for Wives. Dukes theatrical accomplishments found him in such colorful roles as Dracula, Doctor Frankenstein, and Antonio Salieri in the original production of Amadeus —replacing Ian McKellen. He won plaudits when he replaced John Lithgow in the original production of David Henry Hwang's play M. Butterfly and a Tony nomination in 1980 for best featured actor in a play for Bent.[citation needed]

Audio

David Dukes recorded several audiobooks, most notably Isaac Asimov's unabridged Prelude to Foundation.

Sudden death

Dukes died of a heart attack in Spanaway, Washington, while on location shooting the Stephen King mini-series, Rose Red. His widow Carol Dukes' experiences with the Pierce County, Washington, medical examiner's office were so frustrating that she publicly spoke out against the office's lack of cooperation. The ME's office would not let her see her husband's body; did not inform her of her rights or honor some of the rights she did try to exercise; and failed to detect evidence of a previous heart attack during his autopsy.[citation needed]

Dukes was interred in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale, California.

Burt Reynolds

Burt Reynolds las insgesamt 3 "Spenser"-Romane, "Chance", "Small Vices" und "Hush Money"

 

Burt Reynolds ist sicher der proiminenteste "Spenser"-Vorleser. Nicht alle Tage gewinnt man dazu eine Hollywood-Legende dazu.

 

Biographie: (Quelle: wikipedia)

Burt Reynolds (* 11. Februar 1936 in Lansing, Michigan; eigentlich Burton Leon Reynolds jr.) ist ein US-amerikanischer Schauspieler. Zu seinen bekanntesten Rollen gehört die des „Bandit“ im Film Ein ausgekochtes Schlitzohr aus dem Jahr 1977.

 

Leben und Werk

Reynolds Eltern waren Burton Milo Reynolds, Sr. (1906–2002) ein Polizeichef in Riviera Beach und Fern H. Reynolds (geborene Miller). Burt Reynolds hat irische und cherokee Vorfahren.

Der 1,80 m große Reynolds erhielt ein College-Football-Stipendium der Florida State University, wo er in ein All-Star-Team gewählt wurde. Nach einer Knieverletzung 1955 und einem Autounfall, der seine körperliche Verfassung noch mehr beeinträchtigte, wechselte Reynolds vom Sport zur Schauspielerei und gewann 1956 den Florida State Drama Award. Zwar blieb die Footballmannschaft der Baltimore Colts weiterhin daran interessiert, ihn als Spieler zu verpflichten, doch Reynolds spielte niemals als Profi.

Reynolds gewann ein Schauspielstipendium am Hyde Park Playhouse und zog nach New York. Er hatte kurze Engagements als Stuntman für das Fernsehen, bevor man durch den Film Mister Roberts auf ihn aufmerksam wurde und er einen Vertrag als Schauspieler beim Fernsehen erhielt. Sein Broadwaydebüt gab er in dem Theaterstück Look, We've Come Through.

Seinen ersten Fernsehauftritt hatte er in der Fernsehserie Riverboat und seine erste Filmrolle 1961 in Angel Baby. Bis in die frühen 1970er Jahre war Reynolds in zahlreichen TV-Rollen zu sehen, dann gelang ihm 1972 mit Beim Sterben ist jeder der Erste der Durchbruch als Filmdarsteller. John Boormams düsteres Actiondrama, in dem eine Gruppe abenteuerlustiger Großstädter eine Kanutour unternimmt, die zum Alptraum wird, avancierte zum Klassiker. Beim Sterben ist jeder der Erste war bei Kritik und Publikum sehr erfolgreich und gilt allgemein als Reynolds' bester Film. In den frühen 1970er Jahren war Reynolds auch für die Rolle des James Bond im Gespräch.

Noch berühmter wurde Reynolds, als er 1972 für die Aprilausgabe des Cosmopolitan nackt posierte. Reynolds lag lässig auf einem Bärenfell und bedeckte seine intimeren Körperteile mit seinem linken Arm. Das Foto gilt als das erste Ausklappfoto (Centerfold) eines nackten Mannes, wurde weltweit bekannt und ließ die Zahl seiner Bewunderinnen rapide nach oben schnellen. Als charmanter und schlagfertiger Talkshow-Gast im amerikanischen Fernsehen festigte Reynolds seinen Ruhm, er avancierte zum Sexsymbol und Top-Star.

Bereits seit Mitte der 1960er Jahre ist Reynolds auch als Regisseur tätig. 1966 trat er erstmals als solcher in Erscheinung und inszenierte eine Folge der Serie Hawk, in der er auch selbst die Hauptrolle spielte. Ab 1976 folgten einige Spielfilme, darunter der 1985 gedrehte Sie nannten ihn Stick. Ab dem gleichen Jahr führte er Regie bei unterschiedlichen Fernsehproduktionen, so drehte er in den Jahren 1990 bis 1994 mehr als 30 Folgen der Serie Daddy schafft uns alle.Mit dem Kinofilm Letzte Ausfahrt Hollywood folgte im Jahr 2000 seine bisher letzte Produktion als Regisseur.

Ab Mitte der 1970er Jahre verlegte er sich mit großem Erfolg auf künstlerisch anspruchslose Actionkomödien wie Ein ausgekochtes Schlitzohr (1977) oder Auf dem Highway ist die Hölle los (1981), in denen er in schnellen Sportwagen über die amerikanischen Highways raste. Mit diesen Filmen, in denen der schnauzbärtige Darsteller das Image des selbstironischen Abenteurers und modernen Outlaws pflegte, etablierte sich Reynolds als einer der zugkräftigsten und - mit vier bis fünf Millionen Dollar pro Film - bestbezahlten Stars seiner Zeit. Sein Image hatte sich allerdings so sehr verfestigt, dass ihn das Publikum in inhaltlich ambitionierteren Filmen wie Auf ein Neues (1979) nicht als Darsteller akzeptierte, weshalb Reynolds bis Mitte der 1980er Jahre vor allem Fortsetzungen seiner Erfolgsfilme drehte. Quigley Publications listete ihn zwischen 1978 und 1982 als kommerziell erfolgreichsten Filmschauspieler. 1976 hatte Reynolds in Mel Brooks' Stummfilmkomödie Silent Movie einen Cameo-Auftritt und parodierte sich selbst als eitlen Superstar.

1984 kam es zur Zusammenarbeit mit einem anderen der größten Kassenmagneten Hollywoods der 1970er und frühen 1980er Jahre: Clint Eastwood und Reynolds gaben in City Heat den „Bullen“ und den „Schnüffler“. Eastwood erhielt für seine Rolle die Rekordgage von fünf Millionen US-Dollar und das begehrte First Billing, Reynolds musste sich mit einer Gage von vier Millionen US-Dollar begnügen. Während der Dreharbeiten erlitt Reynolds einen komplizierten Kieferbruch, wodurch er für kurze Zeit von Schmerztabletten abhängig wurde.

Seine Hollywood-Karriere kam ins Stocken. Reynolds konnte nicht mehr an seine früheren Erfolge anknüpfen, zumal er altersbedingt in seinem bekannten Rollenfach kaum noch einsetzbar war und sich mittlerweile jüngere Stars wie Mel Gibson oder Tom Cruise etabliert hatten. Anders als zum Beispiel Clint Eastwood oder Sean Connery gelang es Reynolds auch nicht, sich in Charakterrollen zu profilieren, die seinem Alter angemessen waren, weshalb seine Filme ab 1985 kaum noch Publikum fanden. In den späten 1980er Jahren kehrte der Darsteller zum Fernsehen zurück, übernahm aber in Hollywood-Filmen gelegentlich Nebenrollen, die allerdings nur selten Beachtung fanden (wie zum Beispiel seine Darstellung eines Pornofilmproduzenten in Boogie Nights, 1997).

Während der ersten Hälfte der 1990er Jahre war Reynolds Star der CBS-Serie Daddy schafft uns alle, für die er 1991 einen Emmy als Hauptdarsteller im Bereich Comedy und einen Golden Globe gewann.

Loni Anderson und Burt Reynolds

Reynolds war von 1963 bis 1965 mit der Schauspielerin Judy Carne und von 1988 bis 1993 mit der Schauspielerin Loni Anderson verheiratet, mit der er 1988 Sohn Quinton adoptierte. Weitere Beziehungen hatte er mit Sally Field, Tennisstar Chris Evert und Dinah Shore. Seine Scheidung von Loni Anderson wurde zu einer Schlammschlacht und ging durch die Medien. In der Folge ging es mit seiner Karriere steil bergab, und 1996 musste Reynolds Konkurs anmelden. Im gleichen Jahr gelang ihm jedoch mit dem Film Striptease ein Comeback. Ein Jahr später wurde er für seine Rolle in Boogie Nights für einen Oscar als bester Nebendarsteller nominiert und erhielt einen weiteren Golden Globe. Im Jahr 2000 ging er mit seiner Burt Reynold's One Man Show auf Tournee. Seine Autobiografie mit dem Titel My Life wurde 1994 veröffentlicht. Im August 2011 musste Reynolds erneut Bankrott anmelden, nachdem er die Hypotheken für sein Haus in Florida nicht mehr bezahlen konnte.

Reynolds hat auf dem Hollywood Walk of Fame einen Stern.

Des Weiteren spielt er eine Nebenrolle im dritten Teil des Actionspiels Saints Row.

Burt Reynolds hatte keinen Standard-Synchronsprecher. Ab Mitte der 1970er Jahre wurde er häufig von Norbert Langer und Christian Brückner synchronisiert.

Burton Leon "Burt" Reynolds, Jr.[3] [4][5][6] (born February 11, 1936) is an American actor, director and voice artist. Some of his notable roles include Bo 'Bandit' Darville in Smokey and the Bandit, Lewis Medlock in Deliverance, Bobby "Gator" McCluskey in White Lightning and sequel Gator, Charlie B. Barkin in All Dogs Go To Heaven, Paul Crewe in The Longest Yard and Jack Horner in Boogie Nights.

 

Early life

Reynolds' parents were Burton Milo Reynolds, Sr. (1906–2002), who had Cherokee and Irish ancestry,[7] and his wife, Fern H. Reynolds (née Miller). He was born in the city of Lansing, Michigan.[4] He states in his autobiography that his family was living in Lansing when his father was drafted into the United States Army.[2] Reynolds, his mother, and his sister joined his father at Fort Leonard Wood, where they lived for two years. When Reynolds's father was sent to Europe, the family returned to Lansing. In 1946, the Reynolds moved to Riviera Beach, Florida. His father, Burt Sr., eventually became Chief of Police of Riviera Beach, which is adjacent to West Palm Beach to the north.

In his sophomore year at Palm Beach High School, Reynolds was named First Team All State and All Southern as a fullback, and received multiple scholarship offers.[8] After graduating from Palm Beach in West Palm Beach, Reynolds attended Florida State University on a college football scholarship, and played halfback.[9] While at Florida State, Reynolds became roommates with now notable college football broadcaster and analyst Lee Corso. Reynolds hoped to be named to All-American teams and to have a career in professional football; however, in the first game of the season, Reynolds was injured and a car accident later that year worsened the injury. With his college football career ended, Reynolds considered becoming a police officer, but his father suggested that he finish college and become a parole officer. In order to keep up with his studies, he began taking classes at Palm Beach Junior College (PBJC) in neighboring Lake Worth. In his first term at PBJC Reynolds was in a class taught by Watson B. Duncan III. Duncan pushed Reynolds into trying out for a play he was producing, Outward Bound. He cast Reynolds in the lead, based on his impressions from listening to Reynolds read Shakespeare in class. Reynolds won the 1956 Florida State Drama Award for his performance in Outward Bound. Reynolds calls Duncan his mentor and the most influential person in his life.[10] While at Florida State, Reynolds became a brother of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity.[11]

Acting career

The Florida State Drama Award included a scholarship to the Hyde Park Playhouse, a summer stock theater, in Hyde Park, New York. Reynolds saw the opportunity as an agreeable alternative to more physically demanding summer jobs, but did not yet see acting as a career. While working at Hyde Park, Reynolds met Joanne Woodward, who helped Reynolds find an agent, and was cast in Tea and Sympathy at the Neighborhood Playhouse in New York City. He received favorable reviews for his performance and went on tour with Tea and Sympathy, driving the bus as well as appearing on stage.[12]

After the tour Reynolds returned to New York and enrolled in acting classes. His classmates included Frank Gifford, Carol Lawrence, Red Buttons and Jan Murray. After a botched improvisation in acting class, Reynolds briefly considered returning to Florida, but he soon got a part in a revival of Mister Roberts, with Charlton Heston as the star. After the play closed, the director, John Forsythe, arranged a movie audition with Joshua Logan for Reynolds. The movie was Sayonara, and Reynolds was told he couldn't be in the movie because he looked too much like Marlon Brando. Logan advised Reynolds to go to Hollywood, but Reynolds did not feel confident enough to do so.[13]

Reynolds began working odd jobs while waiting for acting opportunities. He waited tables, washed dishes, drove a delivery truck and worked as a bouncer at the Roseland Ballroom. It was while working as a dockworker that Reynolds was offered $150 to jump through a glass window on a live television show.[14]

Reynolds as Quint Asper in 1962.

He made his Broadway debut in Look, We've Come Through. Reynolds first starred on television with Darren McGavin in the 1959-1961 NBC series, Riverboat.

On June 11, 1959, Reynolds portrayed Tony Sapio with Ruta Lee as Gloria Fallon in the episode entitled "The Payoff" of NBC's 1920s crime drama, The Lawless Years. In 1960-1961, he appeared in two episodes of the syndicated series The Blue Angels, about elite fliers of the United States Navy.

On November 11, 1959, Reynolds was cast with Whitney Blake and Howard McNear in the episode "The Good Samaritan" of the syndicated western series, Pony Express, starring Grant Sullivan, which aired in 1960 on the centennial of the primitive mail exchange service.[15]

About this time, Reynolds guest starred in the syndicated crime drama, The Brothers Brannagan in the episode "Bordertown". He went on to appear in a number of other shows, including three segments of the Ron Hayes syndicated adventure series, The Everglades. He is remembered too for the role of Quint Asper, the blacksmith/ de facto deputy, and half-Native American on CBS's Gunsmoke from 1962–1965. In 1962, Reynolds secured a guest appearance on Perry Mason in "The Case of the Counterfeit Crank". In 1963, he played a character named Rocky in The Twilight Zone episode 155 "The Bard," in which he amusingly lampooned his then-lookalike Marlon Brando. In 1965, he guest-starred as Technical Sergeant Chapman, a Flight Engineer in the second season episode 7, "Show Me A Hero" of ABC's 12 O-Clock High.[citation needed]

Reynolds's film debut came in 1961 in Angel Baby. At the urging of friend Clint Eastwood, Reynolds used his TV fame to secure leading roles in overseas low-budget films, commonly called "Spaghetti Westerns". (Eastwood advised Reynolds from experience, as he had done the same).[citation needed] Reynolds' first Spaghetti Western, Navajo Joe, came out in 1966. These low-budget starring roles established Reynolds as a bankable leading man in movies and earned him starring roles in American big-budget motion pictures. During this period, he starred in two short-lived cop shows: Hawk and Dan August. He disparaged these shows, telling Johnny Carson that Dan August had "two forms of expression: "mean and meaner." His breakout performance in Deliverance in 1972 made him a star. The same year, Reynolds gained notoriety when he posed naked in the April (Vol. 172, No. 4) issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine.[citation needed] Reynolds claims the centerfold in Cosmopolitan hurt the chances for Deliverance and the film's stars, including himself, from receiving Academy Awards.[16]

Reynolds was offered the role of James Bond by producer Albert R. Broccoli, after Sean Connery left the franchise. Reynolds turned the role down, saying "An American can't play James Bond. It just can't be done."[17] Broccoli offered the role to another non-Brit, Australian George Lazenby. In 1973, he released the album Ask Me What I Am. He would also sing with Dolly Parton in The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.[citation needed]

Reynolds appeared on ABC's The American Sportsman hosted by outdoors journalist Grits Gresham, who took celebrities on hunting, fishing, and shooting trips around the world.[citation needed]

In 1977, director and producer George Lucas offered Reynolds the part of Han Solo in the first film of the Star Wars franchise.[attribution needed] Reynolds declined – at which point Lucas offered the part to Tom Selleck, who also declined, so Lucas asked Harrison Ford. In 1977 Burt also starred in the well-known movie " Smokey and the Bandit " alongside Jerry Reed and Jackie Gleason as the sheriff, Sally Field as well.

On March 15, 1978, Reynolds earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and in the same year built a dinner theatre in Jupiter, Florida. His celebrity was such that he drew not only big-name stars to appear in productions but sell-out audiences as well. He sold the venue in the early 1990s, but a museum highlighting his career still operates nearby.[18]

In the 1980s, after the hugely successful Smokey and the Bandit and its sequels, he became typecast in similar, less well-done and less successful movies. One of his more acclaimed roles during this period was in Michael Crichton's Physical Evidence (1989). He had his hand at producing two television shows with friend Bert Convy. One in 1987 was called Win, Lose or Draw. He appeared as a celebrity gameplayer in the inaugural week of the show along with Justine Bateman, Debbie Reynolds and Loretta Swit. The set of Win, Lose or Draw was modeled after Reynolds' living room.[citation needed] Another show Burt and Bert produced was titled 3rd Degree, and like on Win, Lose, or Draw, Burt appeared on a few episodes as a panelist. That show aired from 1989-90.

Reynolds in 1991.

In 1989 he starred in a short-lived detective drama B.L. Stryker, one of the rotating elements of the ABC Mystery Movie.

During the first half of the 1990s, he was the star of the CBS television series Evening Shade, for which he won an Emmy Award[19] for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy Series (1991).

Despite much success, Reynolds's finances were bad, due in part to an extravagant lifestyle, a messy divorce from Loni Anderson (see below), and failed investments in some Florida restaurant chains; consequently, in 1996, Reynolds filed for bankruptcy.[20][21] The filing was under Chapter 11, from which Reynolds emerged two years later.[21]

In 1996, Reynolds sought a comeback in the movie Striptease with an over-the-top performance as a sex-obsessed congressman. The film was a box office success, though generally panned by critics. According to Reynolds, his performance was inspired by politicians he met through his father, who had been a police chief. The following year he appeared in the critically acclaimed Boogie Nights, and his career was back on track. He was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance and took home a Golden Globe Award.

In 1997 Reynolds co-authored the children's book Barkley Unleashed A Pirate a "whimsical tale [that] illustrates the importance of perseverance, the wonders of friendship, and the power of imagination".[22]

In early 2000, he created and toured Burt Reynolds's One-Man Show. In 2002, he lent his voice to the character Avery Carrington in the controversial video game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City ("Vice City Tourist Guide" p. 23).[full citation needed]

In 2005, he co-starred in a remake of The Longest Yard, with Adam Sandler who played the role of Paul Crewe, which had been Reynolds' role in the 1974 original. This time around, Reynolds took on the role of Nate Scarborough. His role in the remake saw him receive a Razzie Award nomination for "Worst Supporting Actor". He also appeared in a movie version of the popular 1980s TV series The Dukes of Hazzard, as Boss Hogg.[23]

He starred in the audio book version of The Worst-Case Scenario Survival Handbook. In May 2006, Reynolds began appearing in Miller Lite beer commercials. In 2007 at the World Stuntman Awards he was awarded the Taurus Lifetime Achievement Award. While presenting him with the award Arnold Schwarzenegger referred to him as the greatest of the great.[citation needed]

In July 2010, he guest starred as an ex-CIA agent being hunted down by a team of Russian assassins who wanted to kidnap, interrogate, then kill him, on USA's Burn Notice. Part of this role depicted absent-mindedness which was noted in the closing scene as "not only being when he drank" implying his character suffered from some form of memory disability or disease.[citation needed]

In January 2012 Reynolds had a guest starring role as himself in an episode of the animated FX TV show Archer. The episode titled "The Man from Jupiter" features Reynolds helping Archer (who idolizes him) take on a team of Cuban hitmen.

He also appears as himself in Saints Row: The Third as the mayor of Steelport.

Personal life

Relationships

Reynolds and Loni Anderson at the 43rd Emmy Awards, 1991

At various points in his life, Reynolds was romantically involved with Tammy Wynette, Lucie Arnaz, Adrienne Barbeau, Susan Clark, Sally Field, Lorna Luft, Tawny Little, Pam Seals, Dinah Shore[24] and Chris Evert.[25] His relationship with Shore garnered particular attention given the fact she was 20 years his senior. Reynolds was married to actress/comedienne Judy Carne from 1963 to 1965, and actress Loni Anderson from 1988 to 1993, with whom he adopted a son, Quinton Anderson Reynolds (born August 31, 1988).[26] E! Online reported that he dated Kate Edelman Johnson from 2003 to 2005.[27]

Atlanta nightclub

In the late 1970s Reynolds opened "Burt's Place" a restaurant/nightclub in the Omni International Hotel in the Hotel District of downtown Atlanta, Georgia.[28]

Sports team owner

In 1982, Reynolds became a co-owner of the Tampa Bay Bandits, a professional American football team in the USFL whose nickname was inspired by his then-recent Smokey and the Bandit movies. Reynolds also co-owned a NASCAR Winston Cup team with Hal Needham, which ran the #33 Skoal Bandit car, with driver Harry Gant.

Foreclosure

As of August 16, 2011, Merrill Lynch Credit Corporation filed foreclosure papers in Martin County claiming Reynolds owes $1.2 million on his Hobe Sound, Florida home.[29]

Personal life

Bosco was born in Jersey City, New Jersey, the son of Margaret Raymond (née Thek), a policewoman, and Philip Lupo Bosco, a carnival worker.[1] His father was of Italian descent and his mother was of German ancestry.[2] Bosco went to high school at St. Peter's Preparatory School in Jersey City.[3] He attended the Catholic University of Washington, D.C.[4] Bosco married Nancy Ann Dunkle on January 2, 1957. They have seven children, Jenny, Diane, Philip, Chris, John, Lisa, Celia and 15 grandchildren.[1] A long-time resident of Teaneck, New Jersey, Bosco now lives in Haworth, New Jersey.[3][5]

Career

Bosco began his career in Broadway theatre. He received a Tony Award nomination for his debut in The Rape of the Belt in 1960 and spent the next three decades supporting major stars in classic revivals like Cyrano de Bergerac, King Lear, and Twelfth Night. His speciality was George Bernard Shaw, winning raves for Broadway revivals of Man and Superman, Saint Joan, Mrs. Warren's Profession, Major Barbara, Heartbreak House (opposite Rex Harrison), and You Never Can Tell, winning Tony nominations for the last three. He also appeared with Shirley Knight in the Roundabout Theatre Company revival of Come Back, Little Sheba.

Following his Tony-winning performance in the farce Lend Me a Tenor in 1990, Bosco appeared on Broadway in An Inspector Calls (1994), The Heiress (1995), Twelfth Night (1998), Copenhagen (2000), and Twelve Angry Men (2004). He played "Grandpa Potts" in the 2005 Broadway production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and capped his Shawian work as the aged Captain Shotover in a Broadway revival of Heartbreak House in 2006.

Bosco has appeared regularly in the Law & Order franchise of television series, in various roles ranging from judges to lawyers to villains. (He is perhaps known for his role of Judge Joseph Terhune on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit). His film credits include Hogan's Goat, Working Girl, Children of a Lesser God, Nobody's Fool, Wonder Boys, The Money Pit, Quick Change, The First Wives Club and The Savages, with Philip Seymour Hoffman and Laura Linney. Bosco narrated the 1991 documentary film Coney Island, directed by Ric Burns and did the voice of a number of characters for his brother Ken's documentaries for PBS. Bosco also portrayed Vincenzo the butler in the 1995 comedy It Takes Two, co-starring Steve Guttenberg, Kirstie Alley and Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, and portrayed Walter Wallace, father of the bride-to-be in the 1997 romantic comedy My Best Friend's Wedding, co-starring Julia Roberts, Cameron Diaz and Dermot Mulroney.

In 1988, Bosco won a Daytime Emmy award for his appearance in the ABC Weekend Special 'Read Between The Lines'. Bosco was a series regular on the FX original series Damages. He read Desert Giant: The World of the Saguaro Cactus by Barbara Bash as its narrator on the PBS series Reading Rainbow in its sixty-second episode on March 27, 1990.

James Farentino (* 24. Februar 1938 in Brooklyn, New York; † 24. Januar 2012 in Los Angeles, Kalifornien[1]) war ein US-amerikanischer Filmschauspieler.

 

Leben

Zu Farentinos wohl bekanntester Filmrolle zählt jene des Simon Petrus in Franco Zeffirellis Fernsehfilm Jesus von Nazareth aus dem Jahr 1977. Er selbst wurde für diese Rolle mit einer Emmy-Nominierung bedacht. Außerdem stand er zwischen 1981 und 1982 in Der Denver-Clan und 1998 in Melrose Place vor der Kamera. In Emergency Room – Die Notaufnahme war James Farentino 1996 als Ray Ross, Vater von Doug Ross, alias George Clooney, zu sehen.

James Farentino fiel privat immer wieder durch Eskapaden auf. In den frühen 1990er Jahren schrieb er als Stalker von Tina Sinatra, Tochter Frank Sinatras, in den USA Schlagzeilen. Außerdem wurde er 1991 in Kanada mit 3,2 Gramm Kokain in seinem Besitz verhaftet. Gegen eine Kaution kam er jedoch wieder frei. Farentino war viermal verheiratet. Seine erste Ehe mit Filmschauspielerin Elizabeth Ashley hielt von 1962 bis 1965.

James Farentino (February 24, 1938 – January 24, 2012) was an American actor. He appeared in nearly 100 television, film and stage roles, among them The Final Countdown, Jesus of Nazareth, and Dynasty.

 

Career

Born in Brooklyn, New York, Farentino went to local schools followed later by studying drama and acting in Catholic based schools. In the 1950s and 60s, he went on to stage and a few TV roles. Among his many television appearances, Farentino guest-starred in 1964 with Efrem Zimbalist, Jr., in the episode "Super-Star" of the CBS drama series, The Reporter, with Harry Guardino in the starring role of journalist Danny Taylor of the fictitious New York Globe newspaper. Early in 1967, he appeared in Barry Sullivan's NBC western series The Road West in the episode "Reap the Whirlwind".

In 1969, he starred opposite Patty Duke in the film Me, Natalie. Farentino was one of the lawyers in NBC TV series The Bold Ones (1969–1972), which also starred Burl Ives and Joseph Campanella. He made two appearances in the 1970s anthology television series Night Gallery, once with then-wife Michele Lee ("Since Aunt Ada Came to Stay"), and secondly with actress Joanna Pettet ("The Girl With The Hungry Eyes"). In the 1970s, he appeared in an NBC Mystery Movie, Cool Million. In 1978, Farentino was nominated for an Emmy Award for Outstanding Performance by a Supporting Actor in a Comedy or Drama Special for his portrayal of Saint Peter in the mini-series, Jesus of Nazareth. He also did the TV film When No One Would Listen which teamed him one last time with Michelle Lee.

In 1980, Farentino starred in The Final Countdown with Kirk Douglas and Martin Sheen. Farentino appeared as "Frank Chaney" in the short-lived 1984 ABC series Blue Thunder, based on the 1983 film of the same name starring Roy Scheider. (The 11-episode series, which starred a then-unknown Dana Carvey, was released on DVD in August 2006.) In 1991 Farentino starred in A cop killed in the line of duty. In the late 1990s, he appeared as Doug Ross' estranged father, "Ray", on ER.

Farentino also voiced the character Grungy in the 1994 Aaahh!!! Real Monsters episode “Snorched If You Do, Snorched If You Don’t.”[1]

Personal life

Farentino was married to:

  • Michele Lee (February 20, 1966 – 1982; divorced); one child, David
  • Stella Farentino (August 3, 1994 – his death); Stella filed for divorce in 1998 due to "irreconcilable differences," but later withdrew her petition. Then, James himself filed for divorce in January 2001, also due to "irreconcilable differences"; however the couple remained married until James Farentino's death.

Farentino was charged with stalking his former girlfriend, Tina Sinatra (youngest child of Frank Sinatra) in 1993. A restraining order was issued against him after he entered a plea of nolo contendere.[3]

Farentino was arrested in Vancouver, British Columbia, on July 23, 1991, after the Royal Canadian Mounted Police intercepted a package containing 3.2 grams of cocaine being sent to his hotel room. Farentino was in town filming the TV movie Miles From Nowhere. He was charged with cocaine possession and released on bail.[4]

In 2010, Farentino was booked on suspicion of misdemeanor battery after a citizen's arrest was made against the actor.[5] Police were called to Farentino's Hollywood home. He was taken into custody and booked at the Los Angeles Police Department's Hollywood-area station. Farentino was released two days later after posting $20,000 bond. Police said the actor was trying to physically remove a man from his house. The man, who police said suffered visible bruising, made a citizen's arrest on Farentino for battery.[6]

Death

On January 24, 2012, Farentino died of heart failure at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California following a long illness.

Filmografie (Auswahl)

 

 

William Windom (September 28, 1923 – August 16, 2012) was an American actor. He was perhaps best known for his work on television, including two episodes of The Twilight Zone. He portrayed Glen Morley, a fictional congressman from Minnesota, a role based on Windom's own Republican great-grandfather and namesake, in the ABC sitcom, The Farmer's Daughter, with Inger Stevens as his beautiful young housekeeper.

Windom also achieved fame as the character of John Monroe on the sitcom My World and Welcome to It, for which he won an Emmy Award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series; as Commodore Matt Decker, commander of the doomed U.S.S. Constellation in the Star Trek episode "The Doomsday Machine"; the character Randy Lane in the Emmy-nominated Night Gallery episode "They're Tearing Down Tim Riley's Bar"; perhaps the most common recurring character, Dr. Seth Hazlitt, on the Emmy-winning CBS series Murder, She Wrote, and for voicing Puppetino in Pinocchio and the Emperor of the Night.

 

Early life

Windom was born on September 28, 1923, in New York City. He was the son of Isobel Wells (née Peckham) and Paul Windom, an architect.[1][2] He was the great-grandson of the United States Secretary of the Treasury of the same name. He served in the United States Army in the European Theater of Operations in World War II, as a paratrooper with Company B, 1st Battalion 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 82nd Airborne Division.[3]

Career

Windom's first motion picture role was as Mr. Gilmer, the prosecutor of Tom Robinson in the 1962 Academy Award-winning To Kill a Mockingbird. In 1968, he starred with Frank Sinatra in The Detective, having played a homophobic killer. The role received great reviews from The New York Times.

From September 1963 to April 1966, he co-starred in the television version of the previous film, The Farmer's Daughter, a series about a young Minnesota woman who becomes the housekeeper for a widowed congressman. In the 1969–1970 NBC series My World and Welcome to It, Windom played the James Thurberesque lead and received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Continued Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Comedy Series. After the cancellation of the series, Windom toured the country for a time in a one-man Thurber show.

He was a regular for a decade on the series Murder, She Wrote with Angela Lansbury as a mystery writer. His initial appearance in the role was in October 1985. (He had previously appeared as a guest star playing another character in April 1985.) The producers enjoyed his work, and consequently invited him to return at the beginning of the second season to take on the role permanently. He briefly left the show to work on another series in 1990, but the show was short-lived and he returned to Murder, She Wrote as a semi-regular for the remainder of the run of that series.[citation needed]

To fans of science fiction television, Windom was best known as the tortured Commodore Matt Decker in the Star Trek episode "The Doomsday Machine", a role he reprised nearly 40 years later for Star Trek New Voyages.

Death

According to his widow, Patricia Tunder Windom, the actor died on August 16, 2012, at the age of eighty-eight at his home in Woodacre, California, from congestive heart failure.[1] He was survived by four of his children – Rachel, Heather, Hope and Rebel – and four grandchildren.
