UNCLE Special Guest: Slim Pickens


Slim Pickens was the villain in the second episode of The Man From UNCLE, The Iowa Scuba Affair (1964), In the wave of his most famous role (in Stanley Kubrick's Doctor Strangelove), Pickens as Clint Spinner mix again his cowboy persona with nuclear weapons. More about Slim Pickens from Wikipedia:

Date of Birth29 June 1919Kingsburg, California, USA
Date of Death8 December 1983Modesto, California, USA  (brain tumor)
Birth NameLouis Burton Lindley Jr.
Height6' 2" (1,88 m)
Slim Pickens spent the early part of his career as a real cowboy and the latter part playing cowboys, and he is best remembered for a single "cowboy" image: that of bomber pilot Maj. "King" Kong waving his cowboy hat rodeo-style as he rides a nuclear bomb onto its target in the great black comedy Dr. Fantástico (1964). Born in Kingsburg, near Fresno in California's Central Valley, he spent much of his boyhood in nearby Hanford, where he began rodeoing at the age of 12. Over the next two decades he toured the country on the rodeo circuit, becoming a highly-paid and well-respected rodeo clown, a job that entailed enormous danger. In 1950, at the age of 31, Slim married Margaret Elizabeth Harmon and that same year he was given a role in a western, Olhando a Morte de Frente (1950). He quickly found a niche in both comic and villainous roles in that genre. With his hoarse voice and pronounced western twang, he was not always easy to cast outside the genre, but when he was, as in "Dr. Strangelove", the results were often memorable. He died in 1983 after a long and courageous battle against a brain tumor. He was survived by his wife Margaret and children, Thomas Michael Lindley, Margaret Louise, and step-daughter. Daryle Ann Lindley. His brother, Sam Lindley (1921-2001) has acted under the name'Easy Pickens'.

Man From UNCLE 2015 - The Rotten Tomatoes Review


TOMATOMETER 

Thursday, May 12, 2016

UNCLE Special Guest: Fritz Weaver


Fritz Weaver played the first villain of the series The Man From UNCLE. He played the role of Andrew Vulcan, a typical mega businessman with bad intentions. But at the same time it was a human villain, with a weakness: his passion for an old girlfriend, Elaine (Patricia Crowley).
Fritz Weaver, the American actor, was born on January 19, 1926, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He served in Civilian Public Service as a conscientious objector during World War II, breaking into acting in the early 1950s. He made his Broadway debut in October 1955 in "The Chalk Garden," which garnered five Tony Award nominations, including one for Weaver as Best Featured Actor in a Play. He also won a 1956 Theatre World Award for his performance. 
The first of literally scores of television appearances came in 1957, in "The Playwright and the Stars" broadcast as part of the drama omnibus Studio One (1948). He continued to appear on Broadway, winning a Tony Award for Best Actor in Play his performance as Jermome Malley in Robert Marasco's "Child's Play." Though Weaver has appeared in many movies, it generally was as a supporting actor or in small parts, and the role of Malley was given to James Mason in the 1972 film version (Child's Play(1972)) of the play. 
His most memorable role, arguably, was that of the doomed German Jewish patriarch Dr. Josef Weiss in the watershed TV mini-series Holocaust (1978), for which he was nominated for an Emmy Award as Outstanding Lead Actor in a Limited Series. Since 1995, Weaver is known as the narrator of programs on the History Channel.

Kotaku: "Batman '66 and The Man From UNCLE Have Their Ultimate Showdown"


27 APRIL 2016 5:00 PM

Although his ongoing digital series sadly came to a close late last year, the wonderfully campy Batman ’66comic got a brief revival this year with a crossover with the classic spy series The Man From UNCLE. Before it comes to an end this week, we’ve got a sneak peek at the final chapter.

Written by Jeff Parker with art by David Hanh, this crossover has seen Batman team up with top secret agents Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin on a mission to take down a sinister group known as THRUSH (because all good spy stories are about covert organisations with great acronyms for names) before they can take over the world.
