Gerald McRaney Simon And Simon

Gerald McRaney: Rick Simon


Rick Simon : [to nurse at Mental Hospital where he and AJ are being held by the villian] Take me to my brother or I’ll do something Alfred Hitchcock never dreamed of.

Rick Simon: Alright, let’s put this thing into perspective. Now, correct if I’m wrong, OK? but this is how I got this thing figured. What we have here is a whole bunch of people with no money who go out and buy brand new cars just after they die. Is that pretty much the way you got it figured?

A.J.Simon: That’s pretty much the way I’ve got it figured, yeah. And what, I ask myself, has Terry Hudson got to do with all of this?

Rick Simon: If he’s dead, he probably just bought a new car.

[Rick & A.J. seek a restraining order against an ex-con they helped put in jail]

A.J.Simon: Town, the guy is clearly here to make trouble, and he’s carrying a grudge the size of the U.S.S. Enterprise.

Rick Simon: Tell him about the cantaloupe.

A.J.Simon: Oh, yes! Somebody broke into my house yesterday and sliced up a cantaloupe that I had in my refrigerator.

Lt. M.P. ‘Downtown’ Brown: This *is* serious.

A.J.Simon: Town, we can take care of ourselves, but when it comes to threatening our mother, yes it is serious.

Lt. M.P. ‘Downtown’Brown: OK look, let’s go over the evidence here. Now your mother invited this man into her house for a party and Rick jumped him, right?

Rick Simon: That’s right.

Lt. M.P. ‘Downtown’ Brown: Ah-ha. And you found some cut-up fruit in your refrigerator. Oh, I’ll think of something.

[Rick & A.J. are trying to talk Town into letting them look at a car in the police impound]

Rick Simon: Town, now this assignment you got, it’s probably gonna be very tiring, right? And you could use a rest… well we’re gonna be doing a big celebration when this is all over, y ‘know, we’re gonna do a kind of a blow-out weekend over in Vegas… why don’t you kinda tag along with us, y ‘know, we’ll comp you to the Robert Goulet show… it’ll be great.

Lt. M.P. ‘Downtown’ Brown: Robert Goulet? If you’re gonna bribe me, at least make it interesting. I’ll give you half an hour.

Rick Simon: Barry Manilow.

Lt. M.P. ‘Downtown’ Brown: 20 minutes.

A.J.Simon: Uh… Wayne Newton!

Lt. M.P. ‘Downtown’ Brown: 10 minutes.

Gerald McRaney Deadwood

Gerald McRaney on potential ‘Deadwood’ movie: I will ‘drop whatever’ to work with David Milch again [EXCLUSIVE VIDEO]

The American actor played George Hearst on the final season of “Deadwood,” a cutthroat villain to viral even Ian McShane‘s Al Swearengen. Hearst traveled to the lawless town in his never-ending quest to control its gold but hit a snag when Alma Garrett Ellsworth (Molly Parker) refused to sell her land. “He regarded human beings as just other pieces of mining equipment,” recalls the actor about Hearst.

The “Deadwood” cast is immense which prompts him to wonder whether a revival will ever happen. “I don’t know how that’s gonna work because all the people are off doing other things. So it’s gonna be a hard thing to get them all available at the same moment in time to do it.”

“I’ve done a lot of things where you have to sort of strain to make the material better than it is so you find yourself acting your left foot off,” he adds about his long career. “And with guys like David you don’t have to. It’s such a pleasure to just be the actor and not have to fix anything, not make any suggestions, not any of that stuff.”

Also in the interview, he said “This Is Us” scene-stealer fondly remembers his “Deadwood” co-star the late Powers Boothe. McRaney talks about his classic TV roles from “Simon and Simon” to “Major Dad” to “Designing Women,” and shares what it’s like playing Dolly Parton‘s grandfather in NBC’s “Coat of Many Colors” telefilms.

‘House of Cards’ Interview on Good Day LA

Gerald McRaney On Longmire

‘Gerald McRaney on Longmire, Simon & Simon, and The Neverending Story

Welcome to Random Roles, wherein we talk to actors about the characters who defined their careers. The catch: They don’t know beforehand what roles we’ll ask them to talk about.

Longmire (2012-2015)—“Barlow Connally”

Gerald McRaney: He’s scary. [Laughs.] I didn’t quite know what was going to be required of the role when I got it, but Barlow took some twists and turns that I wasn’t expecting. At all. When I got the last scene of last season—not this season, but the one before—it was, like, “Oh boy, this is bizarre…” But it was an interesting role, which I’d much rather play than something that’s bland and ordinary and easy to figure out. But it was a challenge as well. It’s good as an actor to have something that scares you a little from time to time. It reminds you of the fact that you’re an actor and not a C.P.A.

The A.V. Club: How did you find your way into the series in the first place? Did they come looking for you specifically, or was it an audition?

GM: No, they came looking for me specifically. I had worked with [executive producer] Greer Shephard’s father back when he was with CBS, and I’ve been sort of in her orbit for some time, and I think that Greer more than anybody wanted me. And their line producer, Pat McKee, is a guy who started out as a trainee on Simon & Simon in the old days, so there’s an association with a couple of people on that show.

AVC: When you first started on Longmire, was Barlow intended to be a recurring character even then, or was he originally a one-off?

GM: No, there was a story arc in that first season. But I don’t know what their intention was beyond that.

AVC: Was there a particular point when you realized that it had grown into something beyond just that arc?

GM: When they asked me back. [Laughs.] When they asked me to do more than the original storyline.

AVC: And when did you find out that this was going to be your last season on Longmire?

GM: When I read the script! [Laughs.]

AVC: Fair enough. I just didn’t know if you’d gotten any sort of advance warning.

GM: None. I read the script, and I was, like, “Whoa, what did I do to piss somebody off?”

AVC: There are probably a lot of answers to that question when it comes to Barlow Connally.

GM: Oh, yes. I’m sure! With Barlow, it’d be a lot easier to figure out the people he didn’t piss off. [Laughs.] But I just thought they wrote me some fascinating and wonderful stuff to play, and I had a ball doing it. I loved working with those people. Robert [Taylor] is just a joy to work with, and everybody on that show gets along with everybody else, which was another great part of the experience.

But I have had the most fascinating career, particularly this latter part of it. I’m back to doing what I started out doing. I started out in a rep company, where you’re carrying a spear one night and being the king the next. I tell people all the time, if you could make a good living at it, I’d still be doing the rep because that’s where all the fun is. And I’ve been having fun the last 10 to 15 years, where it’s been like that. I’m playing all manner of different roles.

AVC: It would appear that your first on-camera appearance, excluding any commercials that might’ve preceded it, was playing Wesley Stuart in Night Of Bloody Horror.

GM: Good God! You are going back. I think the most important thing all of us learned from that was how not to make a movie. [Laughs.]

AVC: And yet it was obviously not the only movie that you made with Joy N. Houck Jr. How did you fall into his orbit in the first place?

GM: Actually, it was through the aunt of one of the producers on the film, Al Salzer. His aunt Wilma was a sometimes casting agent in New Orleans for films. When they came in, she would do local casting and stuff, and she actually lived in my neighborhood and I got to know her. And then through her, I got introduced to her nephew, and this guy, he was going to be making this little low-budget film, and we all sort of hitting it off, and we wound up making a movie. It was like one of those Mickey Rooney/Judy Garland “my uncle has a barn we could use” scenarios. And they had had a little bit of experience in the movie business, but not enough so it showed. But just about all of those people have wound up with careers in the movie business… to my mind in spite of Night Of Bloody Horror rather than because of it! [Laughs.] We were just sort of stumbling our way into doing what we do, and there’s a certain aspect of that sort of guerrilla filmmaking that appeals to me because I think a lot of good creative stuff winds up being done. Again, sometimes in spite of yourself, but it gets done.

AVC: In the case of the other two films you did with him, was that a case where you felt like you owed it to Houck for getting you started?

GM: Yeah, as much as anything else. That, and an opportunity to work in front of the camera again. In those days, that was as beneficial as anything else I was doing, so I went ahead and did those things.

AVC: Prior to your acting career, word has it that you got your hands dirty in the oil fields of Louisiana, but how did you find your way into acting in the first place?

GM: Well, it’s interesting: That really sort of helping me. The first inclination I had about acting was in junior high school and, you know, like any other kid who grew up with the cowboys and stuff like that, I was sort of interested in the movies on that level. And then in ninth grade, I messed up a knee about halfway through football season and was out the rest of the season, and somebody suggested that I go over to the drama club and help them build sets because my father had built houses and I had worked as a carpenter. So I did. And one of the teachers put me in a play. And I thought, “Hey, this is kind of fun! I think I could do this!”
