Current Dallas guest star, and two time Tony and Daytime Emmy winner, Judith Light has just signed on for another primetime television project!

According to TVLine.com today, Judith has been cast as Henry Winkler’s wife, Tita in the ABC comedy pilot, The Winklers!

Deadline.com revealed that The Winklers is from Everybody Loves Raymond creator Phil Rosenthal; Winkler’s son, director Max Winkler; and son-in-law, actor Rob Reinis.  The project, which had a pilot production commitment, was conceived as a starring vehicle for Henry Winkler and is based on his relationship with his son-in-law.  Josh Sussman of Glee will play Jonah, the son of Henry and Tita.   And as to the story:  “Though he has his own apartment, Jonah frequently stops by his parents’ home to take baths, hang out and receive praise from his parents or anyone else willing to hand out a compliment.”

This would mark a return for Judith to the TV sitcom comedy realm, after her turns on Ugly Betty and of course, Who’s The Boss?  What do you think of Judith’s new role?  Do you hope it goes to series? Let us know!

OMG, sounds wonderful, the “Raymond team” meets Winkler and then Ms. Light adding her “light!” I love this woman and frankly, as “dramatically superb” as she is, Judith is just delightful and sassy with comedy. Already a must see, I bet it’s a hit.

Y&R and Dallas Alum, Oscar Winner George Kennedy Has Died

George Kennedy,  the Oscar-winning star of 1967’s Cool Hand Luke, which also starred Paul Newman has died at age 91, his grandson, Cory Schenkel confirmed.

Kennedy died in his sleep at his Boise, Idaho home early Sunday morning, the day of the Academy Awards.  He had been in failing health ever since his wife Joan died a little over a year ago. George had been under hospice care for the past month.

In the soaps, Kennedy is most remembered for his guest stints on The Young and the Restless playing Victor Newman’s despicable father, Albert Miller.  Kennedy first played the role in 2003 and then reprised it again in 2010.   Victor’s relationship with his father gave Eric Braeden some of the finest material of his career as the complex Victor.  Albert had abandoned his family, causing his son to be raised in an orphanage.

CBS original primetime soap Dallas also featured Kennedy as Carter McKay, one of the Ewing families bitter enemies from 1988 to 1991.  Geroge also played the role in two follow-up TV movies, 1996’s Dallas: J.R. Returns and 1998’s Dallas: War of the Ewings.  In addition, Kennedy appeared in several of the 70’s major disaster films including the original Airport and several sequels, as well as in Earthquake.  In the 80’s, he would appear in The Naked Gun franchise of films along with Leslie Nielsen.

After the jump, watch George Kennedy as Albert on The Young and the Restless in scenes with Eric Braeden and Joshua Morrow (Nick).  Then share your thoughts on the passing of this talented actor in the comment section below! (more…)
