George Wendt had to drop out of the Chicago production of The Odd Couple after being admitted to the hospital for chest pains. George, who most of you remember from playing Norm on Cheers, and me for starring as Fat Sam in Fletch which I saw 463 times has been busy lately. He has a new beer drinking guide out and has been everywhere promoting it. He really should be careful. he is way older than he was when he starred on Cheers, but appears to be the same weight and the body just can't handle it. He is 64 years old now and was set to star alongside Tim Kazurinsky in the production. That is an old 80's SNL name. He was one of the very few guys that could make Eddie Murphy lose it during the show.
