Tony Randall: Where
Does The Actor Begin?
NEW YORK (AP) — Tony Randall,
half of ABC's "The Odd Couple," was a
guest on Johnny Carson's late evening
show recently and launched into a
complicated anecdote obviously leading
to a snapper ending. Carson lit a
cigarette as the story came to its
Randall, moving into his punch line,
exploded, "I can't stand smoking!"
Without pause, he wrapped up the story—with its point completely diluted.
The truth is there's a heap of the TV
character of Felix inside Tony. That is
the fussbudget and wildly hypochrondrical divorced man sharing an apartment with Oscar, a freewheeling slob,
also divorced in the series.
Tony watches his own food closely. He
exercises faithfully. He was recently
troubled by a touch of bursitis in his
arm— and was sporting a pure copper
bracelet, an amulet to ward off arthritis,
in particular.
The casting of Randall and Jack
Elugman as TV's "Odd Couple" seems,
in retrospect, to have been sheer inspiration, now that the series is comfortably established in Nielsen's top 30 or 40
"The truth is that ABC ran it up a
flagpole and tried casting ideas out on
some front porches," Randall said.
"The network signed the adaptation of
Neil Simon's play and then its research
department got together a list of
couples—you know, 'Would you like to
see Gary Grant and Ernest Borgnine or
Rock Hudson and Buddy Hackett in the
show?' Actually, they stuck to people
who had some relationship to the play.
Both Klugman and I had played in 'The
Odd Couple.' Anyway, we were elected."
