    Default Paul Michael Glaser [ex TV Actor]

    Okay then, former hunk from yesteryear.

    Vital Stats and trivia:
    Born: March 25, 1943
    Height: 5'11" (in his prime)
    Hair: Dark Brown (in his prime)
    Eyes: Light blue
    Trademarks: Thick, curly, hair, left-handed


    Back in the 1970's you were either a Starsky or a Hutch girl. I was a Starsky girl. I thought the Starsky character was original, kind of a man-child, but in a good way. Sometimes a bit dumb/naive, very loyal and with a cute sense of humor. Unbelievable that Starsky&Hutch was sometimes deemed too violent and REALISTIC for TV back then. When you watch it now, it's sometimes more a comedy. Times sure have changed.

    Paul Michael's personal tragedy can be googled. He is now 75, does theater here and there (still quite popular in the UK I've read), wrote a book, does occasional guest appearances etc. Once widowed, once divorced he's now single, living a modest live. Father of Jake (born 1984) and Zoe (born 1997).






    ^With Henry "The Fonz" Winkler, a personal friend.

    ^Telling their story to 60 minutes when the tabloids threatened to out them. The Enquirer had event sent a photographer, dressed as a rabbi, to the hospital where their daughter lay dying.



    ^With princess Diana 4 months before Elizabeth died of Aids.

    On a happier note, some eye candy pics.

    LOL, some trivia about his movie debut, which this was: director Norman Jewison made blue-eyed actor Paul Michael Glaser wear brown-eyed contacts, because according to him there were no blue-eyed Jews in that region during that time (.....). This resulted in Glaser suffering from an eye infection and very watery eyes for almost the entire duration of the movie! There's also an actress in the movie playing one of the three daughters, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Barbra Streisand. Also, Topol - who played Tevya - was only in his thirties when he played the patriarch in the movie!!!


    Finally, Glaser himself played Tevya when he was 70 years old, in the UK.

    I love Fiddler on the Roof trivia, too. One of my favorites:
    Director Norman Jewison was brought into the project by executives at United Artists who thought he was Jewish. His first words to the executives upon meeting them were, "You know I'm not Jewish, right?"

    Also, the woman who played Topol's wife in the movie had previously played his daughter in the Broadway production.

    Oh, I also wanted to say that the first time I saw anything of Fiddler on the Roof was from my catholic school's production of it (8th graders). I instantly loved it.

    I liked him too...I liked both of them really. I looked up David Soul to see what he's been up to too. Married 5 times and became an English citizen.
    Has not aged well.

    Glaser looked the same for ages. I remember reading somewhere in the late nineties, when they had their first reunion with Huggy Bear, Antonio Fargas, that Soul was sort of frustrated and said "This guy just won't age" meaning Glaser. But, time waits for no one and sure has caught up with Glaser, too. He was quite a few pounds overweight in recent years, but then slimmed down a lot, which aged his face enormously. I hope it was normal and intended weight loss, and that he doesn't have health issues. Both him and Soul were/are heavy smokers and Soul of course was/is pretty much an alcoholic...... that'll age one, for sure.
