Whatever Happened to “Roz” From Night Court?

A lot of us growing up knew who Roz from Night Court was, she was the woman that took over when Selma Diamond passed away, rest in peace, in the mid-80s. That was a hard blow for the Night Court crowd and it was experienced as a hard moment for the cast as well since Selma was one of the only people that could really handle Bull, played by Richard Moll. When Roz came on the scene though it took a little bit of time to get used to her, but thankfully it didn’t take too long since her comedic

Whatever Happened to Markie Post?

The actors that we enjoyed in the past decades are still around if you take the time to look. While some of them have likely passed away and others have retired, some like Markie Post have stuck around in order to continue their careers and let people know that they’re not quite done yet. While a lot of us might remember Markie from her time on Night Court, it’s interesting to realize that she wasn’t an original cast member. She came on during the third season and stayed on until the end, a constant foil to John Larroquette’s character Dan

Tony Hale may join the club of 3-time comedy supporting actor Emmy champs in this very unusual way

Tony Hale may join the club of 3-time comedy supporting actor Emmy champs in this very unusual way
Tony Hale is one of eight men to have won the Best Comedy Supporting Actor Emmy twice and he’ll have his final shot — for “Veep” at least — to upgrade to an even more exclusive club next month of three-time champs. If Hale does pull through with the win, he will stand alone in one way in the group: He’d be the only three-time champ who never had consecutive victories of any kind.

Just five men have scored a trio of statuettes in this category, all of whom won at least two Emmys back to back: Art Carney, Ed Asner (“The Mary Tyler Moore Show,” 1971-72, ’75), Michael Richards (“Seinfeld,” 1993-94, ’97), Brad Garrett (“Everybody Loves Raymond,” 2002-03, ’05) and Jeremy Piven (“Entourage,” 2006-08).

Hale’s previous triumphs came in 2013 and 2015, and he is one of three men, the others being “Modern Family’s” Eric Stonestreet and Ty Burrell, to have won this category twice this decade.

Tony Hale could be the 6th 3-time Best Comedy Supporting Actor Emmy champ
Tony Hale is one of three people to have won two Best Comedy Supporting Actor Emmy Awards this decade, the others being “Modern Family” stars Eric Stonestreet and Ty Burrell. If he wins again for the seventh and final season of “Veep,” he’d join an elite group of three-time champs in the category.

Only five people have won exactly three comedy supporting actor Emmys: Art Carney, Ed Asner, Michael Richards, Brad Garrett and Jeremy Piven.

Three is not the record number of wins in the category though. Don Knotts triumphed five times for “The Andy Griffith Show,” while David Hyde Pierce (“Frasier”) and John Larroquette (“Night Court”) have four victories each.

House is One of The Most Fun 80s Horror Movies That You May Have Never Seen

One of my favorite horror movies to watch when I was growing up was a 1985 film called House. Outside of my family, I don’t know a lot of people that are familiar with this movie, so I thought I’d bring it to your attention just in case. If you have seen the movie… congratulations! You win! And now you can go watch it again.

The movie was written by Fred Dekker (Monster Squad) and Ethan Wiley and it was directed by Steve Miner. House also had a great cast that included William Katt (Greatest American Hero), George Wendt (Cheers) and Richard Moll (Night Court).

The story follows a character named Roger Cobb, a Vietnam vet with a career as a horror novelist, whose son Jimmy mysteriously disappears while visiting his aunt's house. As Roger doesn’t give up looking for Jimmy his marriage comes to an end and

It Came From The Tube: Deadly Messages (1985)

TV didn’t always upend the horror formula; but when they would add a couple of different colors to the mix, the result was usually at least interesting. Such is the case with Deadly Messages (1985), which throws the whole palette at the screen for a very messy, but entertaining distraction.

Originally broadcast February 21st as part of The ABC Thursday Night Movie, the telefilm could not have picked a worse night to premiere: in addition to CBS’ solid lineup of Magnum, P.I. and Simon & Simon, NBC had the biggest block on the air – The Cosby Show/Family Ties/Cheers/Night Court. Oh well. For the six other people not watching that, they were left with a goofy and breezy murder mystery come Ouija board spookfest.
