Larry Hagman 1931-2012

A few quick thoughts on the late great Larry Hagman:

A few years ago, Victoria had gotten the privilege to spend the night with Larry and a number of other great “Dallas,” TV stars doing his grooming & makeup at one of the TV LAND Awards shows. Since then she’s always said this to me about him: “Larry was a super sweet, funny guy, who made everyone laugh that was in the room. And he loved his big bushy eyebrows. No one was allowed near those gigantic brows…”

My own favorite works by Hagman:

“Harry & Tonto,” as Art Carney’s screw-up of a son.
“Dallas,” as Jr Ewing.
“I Dream of Genie,” as Major Anthony Nelson.

Finally: The new “Dallas” reboot, a true guilty pleasure of mine. I think we all know, even at age 80, he knocked that show right out of the park.

I think it’s safe to say Larry Hagman’s career was living proof, that it’s never too late to make a that big comeback a reality.

New York I believe in you…

“A Rainy day on Broadway” (1859 NYC) By Edward Anthony. Some places will always be there, and will always bounce back. I do believe this. Same goes for you New Jersey.

Speaking as a former East Coaster-My heart and soul goes out to anyone affected by Hurricane Sandy.

We will all get through this together, no matter the distance or damage.

I promise this.

Much love,

I guess some people do matter after all…

Obama did win like I predicted. Wait let me correct myself, Nate Silver is the man who predicted everything. I am happy to have four more years of progress for all but, I have no real time to blog/reflect about it. I’ve been writing more grown up stuff i.e. my creative non-fiction and editing some fiction projects. And finally yes, the rumors are true-I am developing a screenplay with a very talented film director/producer. Have a Happy Holiday Season to all…
