      He has played cops before in movies.

      Didn't he play Popeye Doyle in one of the sequels?

        From the promo's I've seen, I think he'll be able to do. I'm really looking forward to watching it.

        I can remember watching the orginal runs of Dragnet when it was in black and white. I never figured out how Sgt Friday always walked like he had a steel rod running down his back.

            Yeah... he ran like that too.I remember seeing him run around the car on several occasions, he looked like he never got off balance.

            And his simple but effective lines, "Just the facts mam", were great.

              Any o' ya'll remember Disorganized Crime????

               -

              I loved that part he played in that movie, although the movie overall was lame.

              My favorite part was when they were transporting the fugitive and told them that it wasn't hard to find him, that his MOMA told them where to find him.

              THEN when they stopped horselaughing, they said "No...she didn't give you up that easy...we had to BEAT it out of her!"

                      Classic Joe:

                      "Now you listen to me, you gutter-mouth punk. I've dealt with you before, and every time I did, it took me a month to wash off the filth. I'll tell you what you did to that four-year old girl out in Westlake Park: you staked out a bench like you've always done. You bought a sack of penny candy; you waited until the right little girl came along... You got her in your car. She started to cry; you hit her across the mouth twice. You cut her lip with your ring. Knocked out three of her teeth. And then you know what you did to her... Now, I didn't say that, Rockwell, you did. That's exactly what you told those officers who arrested you. They advised you of your constitutional rights before you opened your mouth. Now you're trying to tell us you didn't understand. Well, you're a liar... Like every hoodlum since Cain up through Capone, you've learned to hide behind some quirk in the law. And mister, you are a two-bit hoodlum. You've fallen twice for A.D.W. Burglary, three times. Twice for forcible rape; I tagged you for those. And now you've graduated: you've moved to the sewer. You're a child molester."

                      "There are over five thousand men in this city who know that being a policeman is an endless, glamorless, thankless job that's gotta be done. I know it, too. And I'm damned glad to be one of them."

                      My favorite was one of the "lost" episodes (how is it lost if I seen it?? ) when he comes through the door with an Ithaca (?) shotgun and racks it and points it at a BG and says something to the effect of "Don't move unless you want your head to be rolling down (some LA name) street!"

                      Anyone else recall that one?

                        Yeah but unlike those other characters, he's stepping into some pretty big shoes. The fact that he played a total LOSER on TV for several years is going to make it harder for him to live up to Jack Webb's portrayal.

                              From the previews it looks good.

                              BTW - Ed O'Neill in a Y-Town native like myself. Heard he was in town visiting X-mas time, but I've never ran into him even though we know some of the same people.

                              frogman -- i ran into him years ago when we were playing at the Park Inn. seemed like a nice guy. too bad he didn't have christina applegate with him

                              actually i've liked him in dramatic roles more that i did the al bundy character.
