We were watching an episode of Modern Family over the weekend, when my wife said, “That’s the guy from St. Elsewhere.”
I looked closely. “That’s Dr. Auschlander. Norman Lloyd! Wow, he’s still alive and still working.”
Norman Lloyd is 96 years old.
His remarkable career started on the stage in the ’30s. He first appeared on television in 1939. A movie called The Streets of New York. It was filmed at the NBC studios at 30 Rock, which, as you may have heard, got a new owner over the weekend. Such sweeping changes over the years.
But acting is acting, and Norman Lloyd’s career (which also includes producing and directing) has encompassed the entire history of the medium.
That is impressive.
