Veteran Actors


So many veteran actors are still working--even in their 60's and 70's. And that's a blessing for us--many of these actors are icons, and young actors today could learn a thing or two from their humble nature and their dedication to the craft.

Here are 2 examples:
1) The New York Post is reporting that Dick Van Dyke, Mary Tyler Moore, Rose Marie, Carl Reiner (all of whom we still see working on TV, stage, and film) and other stars of original "Dick Van Dyke Show" will reunite for 159th Episode, an all-new installment set in the present day and airing on CBS on May 11.
--My dad will love this. He watches the old reruns on "Nick at Nite."

2) Veteran actor Christopher Plummer is set to play Boston's controversial Cardinal Bernard Law in Showtime's Our Fathers, a cable movie about the sexual abuse scandal in the U.S. Roman Catholic Church.
--He'll always be Captain VonTrapp to me.

You Said

I am always mildly surprized to read something about Dick Van Dyke because part of my brain thinks he died a number of years ago. Should be an interesting show - I hope they don't feel that they have to go all "relevant" - Dick gets arrested for insider-trading and Mary announces she's a lesbian - that sort of thing.

Dick van Dyke is on a show called Diagnosis Murder on a small network (UPN or something like that) My mom watches it sometimes(she loves mystery/cop shows), and it is pretty good. Dick plays a physician who has a cop son, and they end up solving murder mysteries together.

Funny; I've always thought that the best thing Christopher Plummer ever did was to make his daughter, Amanda. ;D
