That's a good idea I'll have to think of some quotes.

Adding you both to the list now

In Other Kurtwood News....

That '70s Show's Kurtwood Smith will keep up his nightmare-dad persona as the father in Worst Week, a CBS pilot based on the BBC show The Worst Week of My Life. The show follows a young man who gets stuck on vacation with his fiancée and her parents.

__________________________________________________


Rounding out the Kurtwood Love is this bit of info. Well someone did ask for some info.

Kurtwood Smith
AKA Kurtwood Larson Smith

Born: 3-Jul-1943
Birthplace: New Lisbon, WI


Gender: Male
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: Actor

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: Red on That 70's Show

Kurtwood Smith says strangers often approach him on the street, pleading to be called a dumb-ass as only Smith can utter the insult. "Dumb-ass" became his catch phrase in eight seasons as the paternally gruff Reginald "Red" Forman on That '70s Show. He was offered the role because the producers wanted a no-nonsense, Chuck Norris type, and Norris himself turned it down. He says his performance was inspired by his own stepfather, who died just as That '70s Show first went into production.

Smith was an infant when his real father, a fighter pilot in World War II, died after being shot down on a bombing run over Germany. His mother wanted to name him Kurt, but she added the extra 'wood' because she thought the name 'Kurt Smith' sounded too curt and insignificant. Smith suspects he is the world's only Kurtwood.

He was a longtime character actor before his sitcom success, usually playing cops, crooks, and other tough guys. On TV, he played the coldhearted Capt Joseph Scanlon on the mid-1980s undercover cop show Renegades with Patrick Swayze and Tracy Scoggins. In the late-80s New Adventures of Beans Baxter, Smith played the sinister mastermind who perpetually threatened the teenage spy Beans. In a funny but short-lived 1993 sitcom about a Hawaiian surf shop, Big Wave Dave's with David Morse and Jane Kaczmarek, Smith played a wacky freeloader who improbably claimed to be Hawaii Five-O's Jack Lord. He also provides the voice of Andy's father on Squirrel Boy. Fans of Star Trek know Smith as the Cardassian Thrax on Deep Space Nine, the time traveler Annorax on Voyager, and the President of the Federation in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.

In his best-remembered movie roles, he played John Travolta's choreographer in Staying Alive, the sadistic second-string bad-guy who worked for Ronny Cox in RoboCop, Robert Sean Leonard's domineering father in Dead Poets Society, Nicole Kidman's clueless father in To Die For, the Secretary of Defense in Travolta's Broken Arrow, and one of Winona Ryder's several psychiatrists in Girl, Interrupted. In his quintessential film performance, he played the cruel warden of a privatized prison in Fortress with Christopher Lambert, and he took a rare leading role in Hard Scrambled, an independent drama where his thuggish character wants control of a run-down diner.

Smith's wife is actress Joan Pirkle. They both worked on Robocop, where she played Cox's secretary, and Smith's character made a pass at her. Off-camera, Smith and Pirkle are longtime activists for single-payer universal health care.

I'm not sure about DJR, but I will look into it sweetie. How cool would it be if Kurtwoods' pilot got picked up.


ETA: I believe Kurtwoods' character on Medium will be Agent Edward Cooper, this is a recurring role as he originated this character in 2006. He is pretty intense. I'm looking forward to this episode as Medium is one of my favorite shows.

Thanks Peanut

I've never seen an episode of Medium! And that's really strange because it would probably be one of my favorite shows. I'll have to DVR the episode he is on.

That would be awesome if his pilot was picked up. I'd love to see him on television again

I wonder if Kurtwood is more like Red or less like Red? Did that make sense?

Ha ha - Red with a pink floral lei (sp?) who would have thought it. It's so cute that Kurtwood supports Mila. I wonder if he sat next to Danny?

Oh great pictures How old is Kurtwood? He's starting to look very old and I say that in the nicest possible way.

I'm glad he supports his fellow cast
