Bob Newhart Talks About Finding the Perfect Cast
For the second time in less than two months, we saw one of our TV heroes, Bob Newhart, live in person. We were thrilled to see Bob present the Impact Award to the cast of Everybody Loves Raymond at the TV Land Awards this past Saturday.
During the presentation, he talked about the luck of finding the perfect chemistry in a cast. He spoke of Darryl and his other brother Darryl like they were (real) old friends, and recalled the first time he met them.
We recently edited an interview with Bob that he did with the Archive of American Television. During the piece he talked about admiring and respecting all the actors he worked with on his two network TV shows — The Bob Newhart Show and Newhart.
In this clip, he talks about casting The Bob Newhart Show with Suzanne Pleshette, Bill Daly, Marcia Wallace, and the gang. Truly a cast that the folks from Everybody Loves Raymond owes a debt of gratitude.
And be sure to watch Bob on the TV land Awards this Sunday at 9:00 PM.
