William Conrad: (on whether his size effects his work on Cannon) There's nothing wrong with the word 'fat,' If you're fat, you're fat. I'm as healthy as I can be; I haven't felt so good in 20 years. We had a stuntman do the long shots in the pilot film, but then I had to go in and do the same things in close-up. So I said to myself, if this show is going to run, I'll have to get into condition. I started going to a gym — and I despise working out — and even lost a little weight. Now I feel terrific.
