TVC 512.4: Ed, Tony, and Donna welcome back Ed Asner, the eight-time Emmy Award-winning actor known around the world as Lou Grant both on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and his own hour-long spinoff series, Lou Grant. The 2020-2021 television marks the fiftieth anniversary of the premiere of the Moore show and, by extension, the Lou Grant character.

Ed Asner’s memoir, Son of a Junkman: My Life from the West Bottoms of Kansas City to the Bright Lights of Hollywood, not only pays tribute to each of his cast members on The Mary Tyler Moore Show, but reveals the persons on whom he based his portrayal of Lou Grant.

TVC 512.5: Actor and author Ed Asner (The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Lou Grant, Son of a Junkman) talks to Ed, Tony, and Donna about “Chuckles Bites the Dust,” arguably the most famous episode of the Moore show; how Lou Grant brought many viewers into the world of print journalism; and who Ed would like to see cast as himself, if a movie were made about his life. Son of a Junkman includes many stories about Ed’s sixty-year career, including the challenges that he faced as president of the Screen Actors Guild; the backlash he faced from the El Salvador controversy in 1982, and the effect that had not only on Lou Grant, but his acting career in general; and the influence that Ed’s father continues to have on his life.
