Morning Man Classic: Grant Goodeve!

Grant Goodeve played the dreamy older brother on the classic ABC series Eight Is Enough and also sang the theme song on the beloved show which ran from 1977 to 1981 and also had a couple of wonderful reunion movies.

Grant, who turns 72 today, is aging exceptionally well and looks as handsome as he ever did.

When the pilot for Eight is Enough was shot, the role of David was played by Mark Hamill, the actor who went on to play Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars Trilogy. Goodeve took over the role once the show was greenlit as a series which starred Dick Van Patten as the family patriarch and future Broadway legend Betty Buckley as the beautiful, young stepmother.

After the show left the air, Grant appeared for a few years on ABC’s One Life to Live, appeared in several episodes of Murder, She Wrote,and had a recurring role on Northern Exposure.

He also dd guest spots on TJ Hooker, The Love Boat, Dynasty and Fantasy Island and reprised his role of David Bradford in a pair of Eight is Enough TV movies.

More recently, Grant appeared in two episodes of the 2017 revival of Twin Peaks and that same year was in the film The Case for Christ. In 2018, he was in the film County Line. He has also hosted the TV show Northwest Backroads since 1999.

Happy birthday to Grant – and thanks for the memories.

Happy 77th birthday to the great Betty Buckley – let’s celebrate with some of her performances!

When you hear Betty Buckley sing, there is no mistaking it for anybody else.

This lady, who celebrates her 77th birthday today, is simply one of a kind.

She had appeared on Broadway in Pippin and 1776 before gaining widespread fame as Abby Bradford on ABC’s Eight is Enough. When the show left the air in 1981, it was back to Broadway and the Tony-winning role of Grizabella in Cats.

Other shows followed including Song and Dance, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Triumph of Love and as a smash replacement for Glenn Close in Sunset Boulevard. She had previously replaced Patti LuPone in the London production of Sunset Boulevard. More recently, she starred in the title role in the national tour of Hello, Dolly! which I saw at the Pantages Theatre. I also saw Miss Buckley in Grey Gardens at the Ahmanson Theatre.

Here are some standout performances from throughout the years plus the bottom video is a recent tour Miss Buckley took to some of the Broadway theaters where she has performed:

Today’s Morning Man: Patrick Wilson!

I’m a huge fan of the talented and oh-so gorgeous Patrick Wilson who turns 51 today.

He’s had success on Broadway and on television but it is his movie career that seems to be hottest in recent years portraying Orm Marius/Ocean Master in Aquaman and co-starring in the action thriller The Commuter. His other films include The Phantom of the Opera, The Alamo, Lakeview Terrace, Hard Candy, Little Children, Watchmen, The Founder, Insidious, Insidious: Chapter 2, and as demonologist Ed Warren in James Wan’s supernatural horror films The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2.

A few months ago, I finally watched Space Station 1976 in which Wilson plays the closeted gay captain to a spacecraft. Glee’s Matthew Morrison has a small role as his ex-lover and Matt Bomer plays a married man with a kid who is really in love with Liv Tyler’s character. Check it out sometime!

On Broadway Wilson was in The Full Monty, Oklahoma!, All My Sons, and Barefoot in the Parkand on television he starred in Fargo, Angels in America and the short-lived CBS series A Gifted Man which was canceled far too quickly by CBS. It was expected since the series did struggle in the ratings but I always enjoyed the show – especially when Patrick’s shirt was off!

So shallow, I know, but so true!

Patrick is a two-time Tony Award nominee and has also been nominated for an Emmy and a Golden Globe .

Inside Laverne Cox’s Tribeca apartment!

Let’s explore the stunning studio apartment of Laverne Cox. The actress and activist actually discovered her architect — Robert Garneau — while watching the show Open House one day. Garneau specializes in imaginative solutions for small spaces and Laverne says she knew he’d be the perfect collaborator to help transform 634 sq ft of blank space into a welcoming Tribeca abode that exudes a sense of luxury and maximizes every nook and cranny to its fullest potential. From the fabulous kitchen with its ample storage options through customized walnut cabinetry with a brass inlay and gray tundra backsplash to a Mugler perfume fountain that functions as both a sprucing station and art piece to the relaxing bathroom with its dark green marble bathtub, sensual-yet-understated chandelier, and LED lighting system that you can adjust with a dimmer — and of course, the main living space that doubles as a dining room, and features a backlit onyx table that descends from the millwork, an exclusive closet for Laverne’s wigs, and a hidden “Murphy glam room” that is dotted with tiny sparkling lights reminiscent of diamonds — it’s safe to say: mission accomplished!
