Hal Landon, Jr., or Lanny as we all knew him at CHS, was the highlight of the evening at the celebratory dinner of our 50th reunion. His Bob Newhart skits were hilarious.
Of course, that's what you would you expect from a professional performer who has appeared on the stage, screen, and television for many years.
Lanny has been in the movies, most notably as the father, Captain Logan, in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure among many other roles.
On the small screen, you've seen him on Frasier, Newhart, HIghway to Heaven, and Dallas to name just a few.
Most recently, he appeared in the critically acclaimed series Mad Men as the character Achilles. Click below to watch
He also has been a Southern California favorite by appearing as Scrooge in Dickens' A Christmas Carol every holiday season for 29 years at the South Coast Repertory Theatre.
Lanny currently is an instructor in the Drama Dept. at Long Beach City College.
Thanks, Lanny, for entertaining at our reunion. Congratulations on your success!
It was great seeing you again.
