Trivia and Quotes

  • Keep on Truckin'

    Adored Harvey, of course -- the thinking woman's dream guy. The hat, the arm band, the funky clothes -- the whole gestalt was perfect. Wonder if he would have liked Mickey Hart's "Planet Drum" CD as much as vintage Jerry? Too bad Carlton Cuse didn't think about a spin-off. . . The sleazy investigator the other night on "Saving Grace" was like looking at the reverse side of the coin. The mark of a great performer, being able to make you forget who you're watching by getting completely inside the character. Although, of course, those of us who appreciate "middle-aged-hot" wouldn't have minded a different sort of on-screen relationship between Jeff and Holly. Hoping to see a lot more of Jeff on big or little screen in the near future. Maybe even on stage again? . . .moreless
  • A personal favorite, he falls into many of the categories in the menu above. His acting talent rates a ten on his worst day. He shines above others

    Jeff Perry has been a favorite actor of mine for a long time. I like his gentle, but firm, nature in Nash Bridges, which I race to the television each day to watch back to back episodes. My day isn't complete without him. Although I like the rest of the cast too, and each does a great job portraying their characters, there's just something about Jeff that I find very appealing. I like looking at him, which makes watching each show he's associated with, a must for me. I'm a huge Grey's Anatomy fan and was so tickled to see Jeff on there. It's just one more opportunity to watch the man at work. His body of work is impressive and he makes each character his own while still allowing us to see that genuine person he is. I would really like to see him in more starring roles. After all, putting him in a co-starring role only makes the lead actors look dim. Love you Jeff, well, your work, and hope one day to meet you in person.moreless
