One of the few actors who made the transition from successful child star to successful grown-up actor, Moosie Drier was the youngest member of the cast of Rowan & Martin’s Laugh-In, hosting the “Kids News for Kids” segment during the last two seasons of that show, while also appearing in major motion pictures, popular TV shows, and countless commercials. Likewise known for playing Bill Daily’s son on The Bob Newhart Show and John Denver’s son in Oh, God, Moosie also worked with such screen and TV legends as Jack Lemmon, Barbra Streisand, John Wayne, Jason Robards, Tim Conway, Barbara Eden, Efrem Zimbalist Jr., and James Garner—all before he was ten years old.
Over the past two decades, Moosie has worked steadily as a voice actor in movies and television, plus he is an accomplished director for film and the stage. In fact, Moosie’s interest in directing began when he was a young kid. We’ll talk about that, and more, when Moosie Drier joins us in our second hour.
This week’s program will also include a return visit from Marc Cushman, the award-winning screenwriter, director, producer, documentary maker, and author who is also the definitive chronicler of all things Star Trek and Gene Roddenberry.
Marc’s latest book, These Are the Voyages: Gene Roddenberry and Star Trek in the 1970s, is a three-volume history of Star Trek/biography of Gene Roddenberry that covers the ten years spanning the cancellation of the original series in 1969 and the release of Star Trek: The Motion Picture in 1979—a period in which Roddenberry experienced many personal and professional ups and downs, while Star Trek itself became a worldwide phenomenon. Volume 2 of the trilogy, which we’ll discuss this week, takes you behind the scenes of the making of Roddenberry’s pilot Spectre, the aborted Star Trek: Phase II television series, and the various battles between The Great Bird and studio executives at Paramount over what Star Trek was—and what it wasn’t. Marc Cushman will join us in our first hour.
