    Ep 25: Why the Most Emmy-Awarded Actor in Television History Still Lusts for the Theater

    Ep 25: Why the Most Emmy-Awarded Actor in Television History Still Lusts for the Theater

    In his final (and perhaps most personal) interview he ever gave, the most Emmy-Awarded Actor Television History shares his insatiable lust the Theater, the invigorating effect Checkov has had on his instrument, and how he will never, ever forget the time Martin Sheen took out full page ads in both Variety and The Hollywood Reporter — standing up for him at a time when no one else in Tinseltown would.

    From his humble beginnings as the son of a junkman in the West Bottoms of Kanas City, to winning more Emmy awards than any other actor (before or since), to becoming a pariah in Hollywood almost overnight for voicing his political beliefs, Ed Asner lived to tell the tale. Never being one to compromise his Integrity (artistically, or otherwise), it's clear that this was a man who lived his life with his head held high.

    And for that, we take the hat off of our head — and lay it across our heart…in loving Memory of Yitzhak Edward Asner (1929 - 2021)
