Edward Asner

Edward Asner
Anyone who was a fan of the Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant, Elf and of course the Star Wars Radio Drama Series would recognize Edward Asner (voice of Jabba the Hutt in the radio dramas).

Fans of Mr. Asner were delighted to see him in the pilot of Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip airing now HERE. Eight more episodes of Studio 60 will be streamed by NBC as well as John Lithgow's (voice of Yoda in the radio dramas) new series Twenty Good Years.

Asner plays Mr. White, an executive at NBS, about half way through the 46 minute pilot. I don't know if he will be playing the exec on a regular basis but there he is.

If the pilot is any indication of the quality of the following series' episodes then it should be quite popular. It's quite good.

Enjoy!

He also does the voice of Master Vrook in the Knights of the Old Republic games.

Everyone I work with is interested to see if this show will be a hit, or if it will just seem too "inside" for Joe TV-Watcher.
