ED Asner Talks About GOODMEN On WPRO Radio.

17 Aug

Emmy-Award winning Actor and former president of the Screen Actors Guild, Ed Asner, most famously known for his roll as Lou Grant on the Mary Tyler Moore Show, its spin-off series Lou Grant, and receiving an Emmy  for his voice characterization for the animated film Up made an early morning phone call from California into the Gene Valicenti Show on WPRO radio about his role in the new movie, Good Men.

On the show, which airs in Rhode Island on Saturday mornings from 9AM-12PM, Asner compared the United States Empire of current television (specifically reality television) to that of the Roman Empire, in which there were arenas filled with people getting torn apart by lions and tigers.

In Good Men, Asner and co-star Mark Rydell play two elderly Jewish lifelong friends and colleagues, who the afternoon before an Oscar party get into an argument about sensitive issues including the Holocaust, September 11th, and a handful of conspiracy allegations.

Good Men was recently part of the Rhode Island Film Festival, and will be screened in many upcoming festivals across the country.
