A chat with Hal Linden

Hal Linden, of 'Barney Miller' TV fame is a Tony Award-winning actor and will star in Mitch Albom and Jeffrey Hatcher's stage adaptation of the best-selling memoir Tuesdays with Morrie in Toronto.

Ted Dykstra will direct the limited engagement that will play Toronto's Winter Garden Theatre May 8-30. Tuesdays with Morrie, which officially opens May 12, is presented by the Harold Green Jewish Theatre Company.

Linden has long been thought to have done the English voice of Tomas Milian in several of his Spaghetti Westerns including "The Big Gundown."

My friend Biltmore was able to chat with him for a moment and sent me the following e-mail, "Got to speak briefly with actor Hal Linden over the weekend. I asked him about his dubbing days. He did voice work between 1961 and 1966. He's very proud of working on 'Godzilla Vs Mothra'. He thought he may have voiced a western, but was'nt sure. He thought they all were done in Rome. He couldn't recall working on any Lee Van Cleef films of any sort. Didn't recognize the name Tomas Milian. So its unlikely he voiced any spaghetti westerns. Feel free to post this on your blog."
