An Update on What Joel’s Been Up To…

… comeback-wise.

Samuel Claiborn of IGN has an extensive piece on where things stand and what he’s looking for going ahead.

John Saxon, RIP

MURFREESBORO, Tenn.– John Saxon, the rugged actor who kicked around with Bruce Lee in “Enter the Dragon” and appeared in three “Nightmare on Elm Street” movies, died here of pneumonia July 25. He was 83.

An Italian-American from Brooklyn, Saxon played characters of various ethnicities during his long career.

MSTies will of course remember his performance as kingpin Walter Deaney in the movie in episode 512- MITCHELL. Saxon was also mentioned in a host segment in episode 301- CAVE DWELLERS.

The Hollywood Reporter has the story.

Thanks to Paul for the heads up.

Regis Philbin, RIP

Regis Philbin, the genial host who shared his life with television viewers over morning coffee for decades, and helped himself and some fans strike it rich with the game show “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire,” died July 24. He was 88.

Celebrities routinely stopped by Philbin’s eponymous syndicated morning show, but its heart was in the first 15 minutes, when he and co-host Kathie Lee Gifford — on “Live! with Regis and Kathie Lee” from 1985-2000 — or Kelly Ripa — on “Live! with Regis and Kelly” from 2001 until his 2011 retirement — bantered about the events of the day. Viewers laughed at Philbin’s mock indignation over not getting the best seat at a restaurant the night before, or being henpecked by his partner.

Longtime MSTies will remember his performance as Harry Carter in the movie in episode K13- SST: DEATH FLIGHT.
