Ed Asner is an icon of American Television as well as a star of stage, television, film and voiceover. His career launched in the 1970s in the Mary Tyler Moore Show. He is the only actor to have won an Emmy for the same role in both a comedy and a drama (five total as Lou Grant). He went on to win two more Emmy Awards for complex roles in the mega-hit miniseries “Roots” and “Rich Man, Poor Man”. In addition to more than 100 television show credits, he’s starred on Broadway as well as the big screen – with appearances that include unforgettable performances in films such as “JFK”, “Elf”, and “Pacific Edge.” Based on a true-life experience, a man discovers his inner self in more ways than one. A near tragedy is masterfully transformed into a one-man comedy, perfectly portrayed by Ed Asner in his hilarious visit to the hospital in preparation for surgery he doesn’t want.
