Morning Man Classic: Richard Hatch!

When Michael Douglas decided to focus on making movies, he left the popular ABC crime series The Streets of San Francisco in which he had starred with Karl Malden for five seasons and was replaced by a handsome young actor named Richard Hatch.

Yesterday would have been the actor’s 79th birthday. Sadly, he died in 2017 at the age of 71 of pancreatic cancer.

When Streets of San Francisco came along, Hatch had already become familiar to television viewers through his role as Phillip Brent on the ABC soap All My Children. His character was in love with the lovely Tara who was played by future Saturday Night Fever star Karen Lynn Gorney (pictured below with Hatch).

But his most iconic role was that Captain Apollo in the original Battlestar Galactica TV series on ABC. Though it only lasted a single season, the show achieved a cult following and in 2004, Hatch, who had been heavily involved in attempts to revive the franchise over the years, became semi-regular in the re-imagined version of the series as Tom Zarek from 2004-2009.

After accepting the Zarek role, Hatch stated “it was a very deep and profound struggle for me to let go and realize that I was not the creator of the series and it didn’t belong to me… I’ve finally come to terms with and accepted that.”

He had written several novels based on the Battlestar series and created his own space opera entitled The Great War of Magellan. He had written a comic book series and a role-playing game in support of this.

Hatch was also a participant in The Battle of the Network Stars where, I think, he was at his most absolutely gorgeous.

Happy 78th birthday to ageless icon Cher!

Let’s face it, there has never been anybody else like Cher. And there never will be.

At 78, thank God, she’s still going strong and later this year will, at last, be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

She is a forever star who has been a part of our lives since the 1960s when she reached the top of the pop charts with I Got You Babe, The Beat Goes On, Baby Don’t Go, All I Ever Need Is You, A Cowboy’s Work Is Never Done and other hits as one-half of Sonny and Cher. She also simultaneously launched a solo recording career with the 1960s hits Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down), All I Really Want To Do and You Better Sit Down Kids.

Then came television variety show stardom and a string of solo hits before splitting from Sonny that included Half Breed, The Way of Love, Gypsies, Tramps and Thieves and Dark Lady.

Cher re-emerged in the early 1980s as an actress who quickly became an Oscar-winning movie star for Moonstruck. She also starred in Mask, Silkwood, Suspect, Mermaids and Come Back to the Five and Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean. At the same time her recording career caught fire again with such hits as Believe, I Found Someone, If I Could Turn Back Time, Just Like Jesse James, Heart of Stone, Strong Enough, Song For the Lonely, After All, We All Sleep Alone, among others.

Cher then began to disappear for stretches but she resurfaces just enough with tops hits (Woman’s World), the occasional movie (Burlesque, Mamma Mia 2) and new albums (Closer to the Truth, Dancing Queen) which both debuted at number three on the Billboard chart.

Best of all, Cher is still performing live and can still sell out the biggest arenas and stadiums, is prolific on Twitter and speaks her mind about politics, and has a boyfriend about 40 years younger than her.

It was so wonderful to see Cher receive the Kennedy Center Honors in 2018 which was so well-deserved. She has had a number one single in seven different decades with DJ Play A Christmas Song hitting the top last December.

Long live Cher!

Today’s Morning Man: Derek Hough!

Emmy-winning choreographer Derek Hough is one of the best of the pro dancers in the history of Dancing With the Stars winning the title six times with various celebrity partners. Hough later became a judge on the series beginning with its 29th season.

Over the weekend, this dreamy, multi-talented dancer-singer-actor-host-choreographer celebrated his 39th birthday.

Readers of this blog already know that I think he is one of the more gorgeous guys on television (he also served as a judge on the NBC dance competition series World of Dance for three seasons) and he has such a wonderful energy.

Happy birthday to Derek!

Morning Man Encore: Pierce Brosnan!

Pierce Brosnan is the kind of guy who is so good looking that you want to either kiss him or slap him! He turns 71 today and is as handsome as ever.

He may be best known for the four James Bond movies he starred in but Pierce has been making our hearts beat just a little faster since he came onto the scene in a big way back in 1982 as the star of NBC’s Remington Steele. He was so dapper that he was tapped to replace Roger Moore in the Bond franchise in the mid-80s but was contractually bound to do Remington Steele.

Timothy Dalton played the role for a few films but Brosnan’s time finally came in 1995. He’s made many other films along the way including such hits as The Thomas Crown Affair, the Mirror Has Two Faces, Mrs. Doubtfire and Mamma Mia! In the latter, he was so charming opposite Meryl Streep even if his singing was dreadful! He was also in the sequel Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again .

What I really like is that Brosnan has always been willing to segue between leading man roles and supporting parts that allow him to so something unexpected – like have an orange thrown at him by Robin Williams in drag in Doubtfire!

My two all-time favorite Brosnan performances were in The Matador (he was brilliant as a boozy assassin) and Evelyn in which he played a man fighting the Irish courts to be reunited with his children.

The actor returned to series television for the 2017-19 series The Son, a multi-generational epic telling of the story of America’s birth as a superpower through the bloody rise and fall of one Texas oil empire.

Since then, his film roles have included Black Adam, The King’s Daughter, and False Positive, among others.

Happy birthday Mr. Brosnan!
