Max Gail

Beefy actor best known as Stan "Wojo" Wojciehowicz on "Barney Miiier". Here's a clip of him in short-shorts from the 1980 TV movie "The Aliens are Coming". Woof!

Matthew Laborteaux (Albert from LITTLE HOUSE ON THE PRAIRIE) is the little boy in the OP's link. I think he grew up to be gay. I bet Max's hot muscle ass gave him mastorbation fodder all through adolescence and beyond.

If he's gay, R4, I'm sure he did dream of that big, furry body. Here's a close-up of that muscle butt.

He had a rare lead role as a studly contemporary artist in HEARTBREAKERS with Nick Mancuso.

He's Native American, and he went to Williams College.

He's in that Mike Rowe vein of beefy, hairy, studly and hot. I'd take those guys over the waxed, shaved and carved out of stone types anyday.

What a beautiful absence of body shame.

Last night my partner and I went to a Retro Disco fundraiser, and I was again struck by how sexy the clothing in the '70s was. Fabrics aside, it was a major turn on to see men's chests, butts and bulges front and center again. And it felt great! Not sexualized, really (OK, maybe a little bit) but more than that it was just...freeing.

What the hell happened to that?

It was really a sexual time, the 70s. And Max Gail looked fucking hot in those threads. YUM.

He is constantly bending over, ass to the camera in that clip. Who directed that thing?

I once had a dream that Max and his "Barney Miller" co-star Ron Glass (at right in the linked photo) had been lovers for a brief time in the 70s and both longed for each other in the present day. I made like Emma Woodhouse and manipulated them into rekindling their romance. Even though it was all a figment of my twisted subconscious, I still get really happy when I think of either of them.

by Anonymousreply 2004/15/2012

Yes, I think that's Caroline as the wife. Max totally has that late 70s/early 80s gay trucker bareback porn stud look going on in the clip. Even the cinematography has that old gay porn look.

There are a couple of great episodes of Barney Miller where Wojo interacts with gay men.

First we have Marty (small-time criminal) and his "friend" Mr. Driscoll. Mr. Driscoll is having problems with custody issues with his son. Watching Wojo trying to wrap his mind around the idea that a gay man could have a son is quite wonderful. Very 70's.

And then there is Vitelli, the gay cop who is outed by Wojo. Turns out Vitelli has friends in high places and ends up getting promoted instead of getting kicked off the force.

by Anonymousreply 3604/16/2012

Thanks for posting this, OP. I had done searches for "The Aliens are Coming" miniseries on Youtube before to no avail. The barechested Max scene I believe is only in the miniseries version and not the edited 2-hour TV movie version. Although I could have sworn he had been washing a car in a pair of cut-offs in that scene. Youthful wishful thinking I guess...

Even as a kid, I've always been attracted to middle-aged guys.

I used to watch every ep of Barney Miller, just because I was in love with Wojo. When I was alone, I'd kiss the tv screen lol.

And same for Hogan's Heroes, that Hogan was a damn fine piece of man-meat.

Not wanting to sidetrack the conversation, but speaking of the Barney Miller TV show, is Ron Glass gay? He always plays refined characters, somewhat effete, and the man has never been married.

I always found him very attractive.

R51, there's one episode where Wojo is at home. We see him wearing a robe but it's open and we get a good view of his hairy chest.

The episode dealt with one of Wojo's girlfriends. I'm not sure it's the girlfriend who is a former hooker.

Max was cute with his hair cropped short, but when he grew it out long (while still thin on top) it was an epic fail and he looked ridiculous. I saw him in a movie the other day - "Where Are the Children?, with Jill Clayburgh - and he was quite awful in it and looked preposterous throughout.

I like all these posts about Max Gail as I thought I was the only one who wanted to screw him--I had little idea he was so "appreciated" and I wonder if he's seen all these posts. Well, in hopes he does read them here's one more: my fantasy is to take a sturdy fraternity paddle and have at that ass of his until he moans owwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww--this would work best with him in a cowboy outfit with the wide open shirt (significant of the wide open guy) or maybe a cop uniform in keeping with the Barney Miller idea. Then after his ample cheeks had been ravaged sufficiently with the lickin stick he'd get greased up and plowed--those asscheeks would provide alot of cushion to the pushin and I'd do my best to squash them flat.....

I was a set extra on Barney Miller back in the 70s. The pay wasn’t much, but it was great exposure. I also took classes at the Lois Nettleton acting school. On Barney, I usually played a juvenile delinquent being brought in by one of the cops. I even got to say a line once on the episode where Wojo dates the ex-hooker. The cast was relatively friendly, if a little too into themselves. Sometimes I’d walk across the soundstage and pretend I was the various characters on the show. I knew that if I stayed positive and made myself available, I’d achieve my dream of becoming one of the Ernie Flatt dancers on Carol Burnett’s show, or maybe even a guest spot on the Love Boat!! One night I was alone on the soundstage after everyone had left, contemplating my future as an actor. I pulled out my flask of vodka and began to drink from it, getting a bit tipsy. I was thinking that I was all alone when suddenly I thought I heard a noise from behind one of the set walls. A rat, perhaps? “Who’s THERE?” I asked, several times. Thinking it was a rat, I went back to my faux soliloquy when suddenly I heard pounding footsteps behind me. Before I could turn around, I was tackled and thrown to the floor. As I struggled in the dark, I tried to see who it was when I felt a furry object fall onto my face. It was a toupee – that is when I realized it was MAX!! “L-l-let go of me, you b-b-b-bastard!” I yelled. But he was too strong for me and his massive hands began to rip my t-shirt into shreds. I pushed his face away when he tried to kiss me, and he slapped me hard across my cheek – several times! I went limp from shock and simply gave up as his meaty, naked body covered mine, and he squeezed me in bear hug as his tongue roughly probed me ear. “Yeah, you make me hot – been noticing you on my set. Tonight you’re auditioning for ME – YOU GOT IT?”. He sounded insane. All this time he had been STALKING me!!! I remember the strong scent of mansweat and Old Spice. My Fruit of the Looms were like cheap pieces of paper in his hands as he ripped them from my firm, but quivering loins. “S-s-s-stop! Please! I don’t want to DO THIS!!” I protested. “SHUT UP, you big queen!” he snarled, punching me in my ribs as he used his knees to roughly force my thighs apart. He violently lifted my legs up over his shoulders. I pushed against his massive hairy chest, but that only seemed to arouse him and make him laugh. Then without warning, I felt his brutal thrust into my mangarden – he-he-he RAPED me!!! Right on the soundstage of Barney Miller!! On and on it went for about five minutes. Drool began to drip from the sides of his mouth into my EYES!! He relentlessly humped me – I thought it would NEVER end. He was so large and heavy, I lost my breath several times, almost passing out. I felt his body quiver, and he moaned loudly as he released his seed INTO ME!! He fell on top of me in a sweaty, hairy heap of manflesh. He lay on top of me for what seemed hours. I only wanted to shower to wash off his scent from my body. Finally, he got up, pulled his pants back on, put his toupee on his head, snickered at my violated body and left.

The next day I went to NBC. ANIMAL!!

Max Gail, when he played Wojo, should have had his butt paddled, spanked, fucked and generally flattened. I loved that friendly, dumb act combined with an ass that desperately screamed "spank me". Now Max Gail looks like somebody's worst nightmare of their old Aunt Mabel gone awry.
