While searching for latest pictures of Jameson Parker,
– – HAPPY BIRTHDAY MR. PARKER – –
I stumbled across this article about Gerald McRaney mentioning Jameson Parker in this interview for the AV Club: [link]
Gerald McRaney on Longmire, Simon & Simon, and The Neverending Story „Mackie“ talking about meeting his wife Delta Burke during „Designing Women (1987-1988)—“Dash Goff”“:
AVC: And then she (Delta) did an episode of Simon & Simon not long after that, right?
GM: Yeah, later that same year, I think, she came over and did an episode of Simon & Simon.
AVC: Was that a “turnabout is fair play” situation?
GM: Yes, it was. Absolutely it was. And the writers in that episode stole a line from me, because there’s a scene where the brothers are driving to meet this lady, and A.J.—Jameson Parker’s role—has never even heard about this woman, and there’s this big effect that the mention of her name has on me, and he wants to know about her, and I’m being rather closed-mouthed, and he says, “All right, just… what does she look like?” And there’s a little back and forth, and finally I said to him, “All right, well, one thing: She’s got those kind of gin-clear blue eyes that a man knows, once he’s lost in them, he’s never going to find his way out.” [Laughs.] Yeah, that was my description of Delta. They stole that and put it in the episode.
