I found this on IMDB: (Dec.17th)
[quote]Does anyone know how David S. is, and what made him feel so bad they had to bring down the curtain and replace him in the middle of a scene in yesterday's performance of the THE HEIRESS on Broadway? Reportedly, it happened during a scene where his character was feeling ill, but David the actor truly was sidelined by illness. Hope he's better soon!
Anyone have the scoop?
great actor! Loved him in "Delores Clairborne"
I love David!!! I hope it was just a bug and he is better.
There has been both flu and flu-related stomach bugs going around NYC over the last month, so that could be it.
Or he just couldn't take Chastain's lousy performance any longer.
Why, exactly, is there a Jessica Chastain?
What a useless hair box.
I'll nurse his hot ass back to health. I'll start with a tongue bath and then...
In the first season of "Alphas" he was styled quite needlessly to look like an old man. They stopped that in the second season.
I love him, but his character on "Alphas" is unbearable. All the characters are, and the writing is horrible. I only watch it for the camp value.
I remember him "The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd." Anyone else a fan of that propgram?
I love Alphas.
It could use some improvement- and I agree Strathairn's character needed to be less doddering, but if they invest in it- it could be a great show.
I hope it comes back.
R7 yes, oh yes. I watched that all the time in high school.
(Despite it obviously being aimed at an older audience.)
I thought he was megasexy then, and still do now.
"I didn't ask for the ANAL probe."
I love PASSION FISH, but to see him in all his near-naked glory, watch A MAP OF THE WORLD sometime, which also has terrific performances by Sigourney Weaver and Julianne Moore (even though the film weakens in the 2nd half due to bad directing).
Loved him in "Good Night and Good Luck" and "Eight Men Out."
So has anybody else heard of his being ill?
I thought the DL broadway queens would be all over it.
He's over 60 and not a diva, so the DL Broadway queens can't be bothered.
I heard he shit his pants on stage.
Jesus r21, that's not funny. Go away.
He's got eyelashes women would kill for- always looks like he has on eyeliner.
LOVE Good Night and Good Luck. I've always been of fan, but he was never handsome to me until seeing that film.
He was featured in a Vogue spread in the January 2012 issue:
That is such a bizarre spread, r24. But he's smoking hot in it.
He will turn 64 on 1/26/2013. He is still smoking hot.
R7/R15, we should.
OH! That was YOU that was the OTHER viewer of Molly Dodd! LOL
I seriously CRIED a little when I found out they were posted on YouTube.
Plays Lincoln's Secretary of State Seward opposite Daniel Day Lewis.
Will he get a Supporting Actor nomination?
I hope David is not ill. I checked his IMDB page and he has nothing listed for 2013. I know The Heiress ends in February, and he probably Alphas. It's strange he has nothing else.
R27 -- back when the show was running as first run episodes I used to send videocassettes to a penpal in Europe who was absolutely smitten with the series! Molly Dodd's mom was a hoot! The show defined quirkiness!
No, R28. The Supporting Actor nomination for LINCOLN will definitely go to Tommy Lee Jones.
How is it that we're not discussing his sexuality? Did the DL have a collective stroke?
We've discussed his sexuality in the past. Definitely straight.
R31 is right - Jones had the more showboating role in LINCOLN, along with James Spader. But it never hurts to have a hit Speilberg film on your resume.
His last name conjures the sensation of having a hair stuck in your teeth that keeps grazing your tongue and making you gag.
I think he looks ill in that Vogue spread. He's smaller and thinner than the woman!
He's one of my favorite actors. I wish they'd release The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd on dvd.
Well, the TV show "Alphas" has been officially cancelled. David has plenty of time to do theatre this year.
