Nicholas Hammond and Joan Benedict Steiger: Next on TV CONFIDENTIAL

Sunday, June 27th, 2010

Actors Nicholas Hammond and Joan Benedict Steiger will be our special guests on the next edition of TV CONFIDENTIAL, Friday at 7pm ET and PT on Share-a-Vision Radio, KSAV.org.

After making his screen debut in 1963 at age ten, playing one of the schoolboy castaways in the original film adaptation of William Golding’s novel Lord of the Flies, Nicholas Hammond was later cast as Friedrich von Trapp, the eldest of the von Trapp children in the 1965 Oscar-winning film The Sound of Music. The first actor to play Spider-Man and Peter Parker on film and television, he is also remembered among Baby Boomers for playing Doug Simpson, the big man on campus in “The Subject Was Noses,” the famous “Oh, my nose!” episode of The Brady Bunch that also introduced the phrase “Something suddenly came up” into the pop culture lexicon. Nicholas Hammond is scheduled to join us in our second hour.

Scheduled to join us in our first hour is Joan Benedict Steiger, whose show business career dates back to the early days of television, when she made notable appearances on such shows as The Steve Allen Show and the original Candid Camera. The widow of Oscar-winning actor Rod Steiger, Joan has also appeared in dozens of films and television series, including the long-running daytime series General Hospital and Days of Our Lives, as well as numerous stage productions, ranging from the classics to modern comedies to her acclaimed solo shows Leona (about Leona Helmsley) and the autobiographical The Loves of My Life.
