Morning Man Classic: Kent McCord who is 81 today!

Best known for his seven-year run as officer Jim Reed on Adam 12, Kent McCord turns 81 today.

For so many of us, the oh-so handsome Kent was our first crush as he starred in 175 episodes of the classic NBC police drama opposite Martin Milner.

Kent went on to be of the leads in the ABC sci-fi series Galactica 1980 and on the 1989 series UNSUB and had a recurring role on seaQuest DSV in the mid-’90s. His semi-regular role of Jack Crichton on Farscape, a sci-fi TV cult hit that ran from 1999-2003, gained him lots of younger fans. There’s also been plenty of voiceover work, scores of television guest spots (Silk Stalkings, MacGyver, Murder, She Wrote) and some movies (Airplane II-The Sequel, Predator II, and Megiddo-The Omega Code 2).

“Make-believe is a wonderful way to make a living,” Kent told me in a 2008 interview. “When you get into my age range — and for women it happens quite younger — you are being excluded from this American scene if you watch the programming that is going on. But there are people who revel in the fact that mature people can have interesting lives.”

It’s no surprise that the LA native’s first acting gig was on The Adventure of Ozzie and Harriet since he was a buddy of Ricky Nelson, whom he met at USC. McCord appeared in about 50 episodes from 1962-66, and remembers one scene particularly well.

“I started on that show working background, standing in for Ricky. One day, they were doing a fraternity show where there was a party going on — early-day ‘Risky Business’-type thing — while Ozzie and Harriet were away from the house. They came home early and I was standing at the door with at my date. Ozzie asked, ‘Where’s Rick?’ and I said, ‘Who’s Rick?’ Those were the first two words I ever said in pictures.”

Happy birthday to Kent who is still quite the Silver Fox!

Olivia Newton-John was born 75 years ago today

Lovely Olivia Newton-John, who died during the summer of 2022, was born 75 years ago today.

Of course we are all familiar with her biggest hits including I Honestly Love You, Let Me Be There, Have You Never Been Mellow, If You Love Me (Let Me Know), Hopelessly Devoted to You, Please Mr. Please, Physical, Magic, A Little More Love, Physical, Summer Nights, You’re the One That I Want, Make a Move on Me, Magic, Heart Attack, Twist of Fate, and Xanadu.

But there’s some songs pre-Grease that I also really enjoy. They made the top 20 and are just so good including Sam, Come On Over, Don’t Stop Believin’ and her first U.S. hit If Not For You.

What a special woman and special talent.

Morning Man Classic: Michael Douglas!

Michael Douglas, who turns 79 today, first landed on my radar when I was a kid watching him on the 70s cop series The Streets of San Francisco.

I thought he was incredibly cool and cute as a cop named Steve Keller opposite Karl Malden and was heartbroken when he left the show after five seasons. But he had a good reason: he produced One Flew Over the Cukoo’s Nest and won a best picture Oscar for it.

His career in movies as a leading man took longer to catch fire but I still watched everything he was in post-Streets including Coma, Running, The Star Chamber, It’s My Turn and The China Syndrome.

It was 1984′s Romancing the Stone that introduced us to the superstar Michael Douglas. He’d never looked sexier on screen and he and Kathleen Turner had all kinds of sizzling chemistry. They paired up again in the sequel Jewel of the Nile then in the drama War of the Roses.

By the time Roses came along in 1989, Michael was coming off of the best one-two punch of his career starring opposite Glenn Close as a cheating hubby in Fatal Attraction and winning the best actor Oscar for his portrayal of Gordon Gekko in Wall Street.

A few years later, Michael was on top again this time opposite Sharon Stone in the blockbuster sexual thriller Basic Instinct. Many memorable films have followed since that heady peak period including Disclosure, The American President, Falling Down, The Wonder Boys, A Perfect Murder and Traffic.

Michael also starred opposite his dad, Kirk Douglas, in the 2003 film It Runs in the Family and got rave reviews for his performance in 2010′s Solitary Man and revived the role of Gekko in Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps.

In 2013, for his portrayal of Liberace in the HBO film Behind the Candelabra, he won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie. Douglas starred as an aging acting coach in the Netflix comedy series The Kominsky Method (2018–2021), for which he won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Television Series Musical or Comedy. He has portrayed Hank Pym in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, beginning with Ant-Man (2015).

Showtune Sunday: All about Tony Award-winning star Ben Platt on his 30th birthday!

Happy 30th birthday to the multi-talented star of stage and screen Ben Platt!

At age 23, Platt became the youngest solo recipient of the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical for his performance in Dear Evan Hansen. He reprised the role of Evan Hansen in the 2021 film adaptation of the musical. This year, he produced and starred in the musical comedy film Theater Camp, inspired by the 2020 short film of the same name he co-wrote with fiancé Noah Galvin, Molly Gordon, and Nick Lieberman. He also recently starred in the film The People We Hate at the Wedding and his earlier movie roles include the successful Pitch Perfect and Pitch Perfect 2.

He’s released the solo albums Sing to Me Instead and Reverie, starred in the Netflix series The Politician for two seasons, and appeared on Broadway in The Book of Mormon for a year. Platt returned to Broadway this year in Parade and earned a Tony nomination.

With so many professional opportunities, it’s no surprise after enrolling at Columbia University in New York, Platt dropped out after seven weeks to fulfill his contract with The Book of Mormon.
