  • Paul Michael Glaser, actor, writer, producer, director... humanitarian!

    I first saw him in Fiddler on the Roof as Perchik, a wonderful "rebel" for change! Loved him, saw it many times at our cinema and then larger than life at the drive-in theatre! Since then, he has gone on to do fabulous work in the entertainment industry both in front of and behind the camera lens! A great eye for directing, I love his use of angles, shadows and framing! From his repertory experiences to Off-Broadway, Broadway, film and television, to his personal experiences with HIV/AIDS, Mr. Glaser's journey has been incredibly inspiring and uplifting! An empowering speaker, one has only got to hear him once to feel his compassion for others and the importance for people to realize the significance of their existence and how one can do more,... always do more for others.moreless
  • A great actor and director.

    I have just started to get into "Starsky and Hutch".(Thank to my mom.) That is were I first saw Paul Michael Glaser. I just thought he was the cutest little thing. He always had on tight blue jeans that looked really good on him. *smiles big*

    To me he seems that he would be a really sweet person to meet. He looks like he has a kind heart, and cares about others.

    He is a great actor. I just love to watch him.

    He is also a great director. He really know what he wants when he is behind the camera. In "Starsky and Hutch" my favorite episode that he directed was "Sweet Revenge".moreless
