NOTES

Hackett serves as one of the Proctors (along with Billy Crystal) of the Friars Club

"He's a legend. Where other guys were just buying jokes, he was telling stories about things that really happened to him. He was off-color [in the early '60s] when people weren't really doing that. He wasn't up there saying, 'Take my wife, please'; he just went up there and told the truth. He was a torchbearer." --Jay Mohr on co-star Hackett, quoted in TV GUIDE, October 23, 1999

On his working in the series "Action": "I'm not here for the money. I'm here because I need to have somewhere to go." --Hackett quoted in TV GUIDE, October 23, 1999
