I always loved Harry Morgan. He was comfort food for me. I loved Dragnet. I loved M*A*S*H. I always get a kick out of watching a movie and there he is. He was one of the most affable of actors. I keep going back and forth between is and was because the one incredible thing about being an actor in film and television is that he/she never totally dies. The body may be gone, but we can still enjoy hours and hours of entertainment. Harry Morgan's voice, unmistakable. Distinctive and warm. Even though he may have played a curmudgeon sometimes, he was the sweetest most adorable curmudgeon ever. Harry Morgan, you may be gone, but you will live on forever in all the roles you graced us with.
Sidebars: The New York Post is reporting that they are in talks with Ryan Seacrest to take over for Matt Lauer. Please say it ain't so. It can't happen. Besides, he would have to take a huge pay cut so it probably won't happen. The X Factor is down to five this week. Can I say that Nicole Scherzinger is the superlative queen? Every body is amazing, God's gift, a huge star, so deep, so honest, the best since ___________, the next _________________. Really? Come on, Nicole, you may be an incredibly nice person, but you have got to learn how to critique. There can't be two Paulas. Casting thought: if they do the life story of Newt Gingrich, who better than Alec Baldwin?
