Hello fans,

We lost two legends in their respective area this past week.
Porter Wagoner and Robert Goulet. Both had long and successful
careers. RIP...

Now let's get to today's WATN... It's on Adrian Zmed who 
hails from around our area. I admit that when Grease or 
Grease 2 is on TV, I simply must watch it. 

When Grease 2 came out I thought it was so bad, but now I 
kind of love it.

Be Well,
Anisa

--DEAD OR ALIVE?

  See if you know if the following COMMERCIAL PERSONALITIES
  have had a visit from the "Grim Reaper":  

- Mr. Whipple (Dick Wilson): Charmin bathroom tissue commercials 
  where he uttered the famous line "Ladies, please don't squeeze 
  the Charmin!"

- Clara Peller: Older lady known for her signature delivery of 
  the line "Where's the beef?" in a series of Wendy's fast food 
  restaurant commercials

- Al Molinaro: Obviously most of us know him from Happy Days, but
  after the show he pitched Encore Dinners... Remember "What Time
  Is Dinner"

                      ADRIAN ZMED

BIRTH DATE: March 4, 1954, Chicago, Illinois


CLAIM TO FAME: Adrian is best known for his roles as 
"Johnny Nogerelli" in Grease 2, and as "Officer Vince 
Romano" in the T.J. Hooker television series


FAMILY LIFE: Susan Wood (1980's - present) 2 sons, Zach and Dylan.

INFO: Adrian's role in Grease 2 led to a short period playing 
other teenagers on film, including 1983's The Final Terror, in 
which he played "Gerone". While this film bombed at the box 
office, his next movie (while not necessarily a hit by Hollywood 
economical standards), fared better: Zmed played "Jay O'Neill" in 
1984's Bachelor Party, alongside Tom Hanks.

TRIVIA: Adrian took on the role of Danny Zuko in Grease 
twice: first during the original Broadway run in the 
1970s, and again during the show's revival in 1995.

Adrian made his television debut as "Socks Palermo" in 
the 1979 series Flatbush. In 1980, he appeared on another 
television series, The Goodtime Girls, playing "Frankie 
Millardo". This was followed by a guest appearance in 
1982's An Evening at the Improv.

Was the host of Dance Fever. 

T.J. Hooker, was based on the life of a real Los Angeles 
cop of the same name. Adrian appeared on the show until 1985. 

Adrian Zmed returned to stage work in the 1990s. He headlined 
the musical Children of Eden at the Paper Mill Playhouse, and 
starred in three shows on Broadway: Falsettos, Blood Brothers, 
and Grease. He most recently appeared as Noah in the musical 
The Ark, in New York City, and in the 2006 Stan Harrington film, 
The Craving Heart.

Often mistaken as "the kid in One Day At A Time" who was 
actually Glenn Scarpelli. See a comparison picture of them both 
by visiting: http://www.celebritynooz.com/watn/adrian_zmed.html


WHERE IS HE NOW: As mentioned above, in the 90's Adrian 
really threw himself into the theater. 

Even with all his theater work, he still stayed somewhat busy
with some roles for TV both in movies and TV series.

In 2006 filmed a 30 second PSA on chained dogs for humane non-
profit Dogs Deserve Better.

If you watch the soap opera 'Passions' then you may have recognized
Adrian as the "floating head". I really have no idea about this
but it's listed as a credit!

Next up for Adrian is an appearance in the Holiday special for 
TV, 'Larry the Cable Guy's Christmas Spectacular'.
