Q: In the original “12 Angry Men” TV play, who played Henry Fonda in the movie? How many actors from the TV play were also in the movie?
Reply: Reginald Rose’s drama about jurors debating a verdict starred Robert Cummings as Juror No.8 when it was first broadcast on the anthology series “Studio One” in 1954. (Also, the title televised was “Twelve Angry Men,” the movie “12 Angry Men.”) Fonda played juror # 8 in the 1957 film. Although the cast in both productions are impressive, only two actors – George Voscovec as Juror # 11 and Joseph Sweeney as Juror # 9 – are in both the TV play and the movie.You may also be aware of a 1997 TV presentation, with Jack Lemmon as the juror # 8, as well as another strong supporting cast.
Q: I just watched the new season of “The Talk”. Do you know what happened to Elaine and Carrie Ann?
Reply: About a month ago, I mentioned that Carrie Ann Inaba had taken a hiatus from the CBS show and her return was not certain. Shortly after this response aired, Inaba announced that she was leaving “The Talk”. (She will still be on “Dancing with the Stars,” which begins a new season on September 20.) Inaba called this a friendly separation in an Instagram post.
