Coming soon to TV CONFIDENTIAL: Actor and author James Rosin on playing basketball with Peter Falk; the life-changing six months he spent living and working on a kibbutz in Israel; and the advice Tony Randall gave before Jim flew out to L.A. to work with Jack Klugman on Quincy. Jim’s new book, PEOPLE, PLACES & ME, is a memoir of Jim’s life and career as a working actor and a working writer, both in New York and L.A.—a career that includes many great stories of his encounters, on and off camera, with the likes of Paul Newman, Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor, Bruce Willis, Mike Connors, Michael Douglas, Albert Finney, Steve McQueen, Ivan Goff, and Peter Finch.

Rest in peace, Joseph Campanella. Met him briefly on two occasions, once at a David Janssen convention in 1993, and again at an autograph show in 2010. He was kind enough to appear on my radio show once and it was a pleasure to chat with him. Class act.
