Some "Fun Facts" about Charles!


Tonight we countinue C.G.A.W. with some fun facts about the man courtesy of IMDB

Date of Birth
21 April 1935, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

Birth Name
Charles Grodinsky

Height
6' (1.83 m)

Spouse
Elissa Durwood (March 1985 - present) 2 children
Julia ? (? - 1968) (divorced) 1 daughter

Trade Mark

Grodin's trade mark is his petulant loutishness that he employs as a guest on various talk shows. Seemingly miffed or angry, his act is strictly tongue-in-cheek as he lobs offensive verbal attacks at his hosts.

Trivia

Children with Elissa: Marion and Nicky.

Charles Grodin attended the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida.

Shares a birthday with Andie MacDowell.

Is close friends with actor Gene Wilder.

Attended the HB Acting Studio in New York City.

Having already been cast as Capt. Aarfy Aardvark in Catch-22 (1970), director Mike Nichols asked him to take over the part of Colonel Cathcart when the original actor did not work out. As the role was written for an older man, old age make-up was experimented with for a few days, until it was decided to cast Martin Balsam instead, and Grodin returned to his original part.

Gene Wilder wanted him to play the part of Charles/Pierre in Start the Revolution Without Me (1970), but Grodin declined, having committed to directing the original Broadway production of Lovers and Other Strangers (1970).

He was cast as Benjamin Braddock in The Graduate (1967), but the deal fell apart following a disagreement over salary. Mike Nichols still offered him a part in Catch-22 (1970), which he was already scheduled to direct at the time.

Admitted in a 2006 interview on "Late Show with David Letterman" (1993) that the surly attitude he adopts on talk shows is an act he developed in order to be a more interesting guest. According to Grodin, he was scheduled to make his first appearance on "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" (1962) in 1973, and was to be in the segment immediately following Diana Ross performing a medley of her hits. Realizing that he would bomb if he followed her as himself, he adopted this churlish character who has little patience for the questions of the host. Carson loved it and it became his trademark.

His wife, Elissa Durwood Grodin, is an author.

Obscure Series of the Week,Grand.

Grand was an unusual sitcom that ran on NBC from January to December 1990.Unusual in the fact that it had a large cast and continuing(at least in the first season,more on that later)story arcs.The series had an all star cast consiting of Michael Mckeon(of Laverne and Shirley fame),Bonnie Hunt(she has a new show every season which never lasts),Joel(Bill's Brother) Murry,that chick fron Kindergarden Cop,and plump and juicy Sara Rue.The show focued on the lives of people of three different social classes in a fictional town called what else but Grand.It was a mid season replacement which returned for a second season .When it returned though it was in a differnet format.Gone were the continuing story arcs and the cast was alot smaller due to the fact that the majority of the television viewing audience was too dumb to deal with this,or at least the network boneheads thought so.Due to this and the fact that is was on opposite the ever popular Twin Peaks the series was eventually cancelled.Maybe if they killed Joel Murry's character and wrapped him in plastic the series would've lasted longer.Anyway here ya go.

Creepy and Disturbing!

this week at C&D we have an evil doll that puts Chucky to shame.(Actually I've never found Chucky that scary, due to the fact that he intentionally scary.).Baby Laughs A Lot here is just too hideous for words.I don't know if it's the squinty eyes,the gaping mouth or that haunting chuckle.Imagine the expression of horror on little susie's face when she finds this demon spawn under the tree.I can just see her plunging the knife deepp into mom and Dad's backs.Anyway enjoy.

Obscure Series of the Week,Double Trouble.

No, we don't have two two series this week.Although I should to make up for the lack of one last week.What we have here is a cute little nugget from the 1980's starring two cute little nuggets,Jean and Liz Segal as what else?,Identical Twins.And as usual with twin shows One was serious and the other was,well off the wall and wacky(think Patty Duke, and Zack and cody).In the series the girls lived with their widowed father in des monies Iowa and revolved around the twins high school hijinks and their father dance studio.The latter as gimmick to show off the twins real life dancing skills.It never recieved high ratings in it's inital run, but was picked up as a mid season replacement for it's second season,where it was heavily retooled ala the Torkelsons(I swear that I'm the only one who remembers that show.)I think it may or maynot have been part of NBC's prime time moves to 7:30 stunt back in the 80's(Another thing only I remember).
Enjoy

Obscure Series of the Week,Rags to Riches.

(R)In this short lived 1980's T.V. series set in the early sixties Joseph Bolonga, whoever the hell he is,played Nick Foley(not the wrestler),a millionaire playboy,sans batsuit and crime fighting equiptment. In order to obtain a more family man image,Foley adopted 6 orphan girls one of them being future Just the Ten of Us star and hideous mutant freak Heidi Zeigler.Rounding out the cast was Clapper the butler.Unfortunately or maybe fortunately the series was cancelled in it's second season, and rarely rerun.In short think Annie with more girls and an even creepier Daddy Warbucks.

Obscure Series of the Week

For the return of an old favorite(or actually not so favorite,everyone seemed to ignore these posts
over at the myspace)we have Rober Blake's short lived,I mean really short lived 1985 series
Hell Town.In it Blake played Noah "Hardstep" Rivers,
a Catholic priest at a church in a crime-ridden neighborhood on the east side of
Los Angeles(Think "Father Dowling Mysterys" with drugs booze and hookers).
The series also feated Whitman"Grady" Mayo and a hip jazzy theme by former Ratpacker and Cannonball
Run star Sammy Davis Jr.For some reason the show just didn't last.Perhaps it was the Priest
Show curse(more on this later).After only a few episodes the last episode aired on Dececember 25th 1985.

Enjoy(R)
