George Gaynes

Season 1, Episode 4,  Jul 12, 2021, 01:40 PM

In this episode, host Charlie Connelly explores the life of Finnish-born American singer, actor and voice artist George Gaynes. He may have been best known for his performances in Tootsie, Cheers and Policy Academy, but this late break-through into the limelight left him fighting a career-long battle between not being well-known enough and being too well-known. Still, this remains one of the least interesting things about him. Before launching a career that took on opera, film and broadway, he endured some of Europe’s stormiest times. Enjoyed this episode?
