St. Elsewhere fans know how funny Norman Lloyd can be from his role as Dr. Daniel Auschlander, the liver specialist and Chief of Services who was originally slated to die of cancer after four episodes, but experienced "the longest remission in television history" and survived six seasons until he succumbed from a stroke in the series finale.
Now, at age 100, the press is celebrating that a) this centenarian is still working, and b) there's someone making movies in Hollywood who worked with Orson Welles, Alfred Hitchcock, and Charlie Chaplin, and who still turns in a great interview. Lloyd has a well-deserved reputation as one of Hollywood's greatest storytellers, and as evidenced by this clip from an interview with DP/30, he's as sharp as ever. And he still plays tennis twice a week.
Accordingly, the story of Lloyd has made its way around the Internet. Check out this selection of features about the St. Elsewhere star and his role in Trainwreck:
