Watching "Muppets Take Manhattan" with the kids. Dabney Coleman is smoking a cigarette as he talks to the muppets in an opening scene (after hanging up his rotary phone.) Also, Miss Piggy is rocking a rather tight perm. God bless the '80's!

I couldn’t let the month go by without giving a big Happy Birthday to all the January birthdays! A lot of celebrities had birthdays this month! Cuba Gooding Junior (“Show me the money”) turned 46 at the beginning of January. Victoria Principal from Dallas turned 64, Danica McKellar (Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years) turned 39 (she will always be 12 years old in my mind). Robert Loggia turned 84, Dabney Coleman turned 82, Jodie Sweetin (the middle daughter on Full House) turned 32. Dolly Parton turned 68 and Married With Children’s Katey Sagal turned 60. There are several celebrities who are having birthdays in the next few days. Tomorrow Oprah will turn 59 and Tom Selleck will turn 68. Okay, wait a minute. Magnum PI is turning 68? Ah, where did the time go? Wasn’t it just yesterday when he was crusiing around Hawaii in his red Ferrari? Heather Graham – who was just in Hangover III – is turning 43. An who could forget Elaine – Mrs. Robinson’s daughter - from the Graduate? Kathryn Ros ...

People ask me why I like old movies? Picking out good ones used to be simple . . . If it had Dabney Coleman in it, it was funny. And . . . he probably played an *** Take that Mr. McKittrick!
Thinking on the death of Russell Johnson, I remembered some of the people who were being considered for roles on Giligan's Island. The professor was almost played by Dabney Coleman. Ginger was very close to being played by Jayne Mansfield. And Maryann (who could only ever have been played by Dawn Wells) was possibly going to be Raquel Welch. I think having Mansfield and Welch on the same island would have radically changed the nature of the show. For one thing, the Navy would have sent entire fleets to rescue them. On the other hand, it would have explained the repeated failures of the professor and the crew of the Minnow to get off of an island that was only a three hour tour's length from Hawaii (although I would say that explanation probably would hold up with cast they did have.).
9 to 5 is a 1980 American comedy film written by Patricia Resnick and Colin Higgins, starring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton, and Dabney Coleman. The film concerns three working women living out their fantasies of getting even with, and their successful overthrow of, the company's autocratic, "sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot" boss. 9 to 5 was a hit, grossing over $3.9 million in its opening weekend in the U.S. and is the 20th highest-grossing comedy film. As a star vehicle for singer Parton, it launched her permanently into mainstream popular culture. Although a television series based on the film was less successful, a musical version of the film (also titled 9 to 5), with new songs written by Parton, opened on Broadway on April 30, 2009. 9 to 5 is number 74 on the American Film Institute's "100 Funniest Movies"
John Thaw who played Inspector Morse in the British Television Police drama "Inspector Morse" would sadly have been 72 today but Robert Loggia who starred in "Revenge Of The Pink Panther" with the late Peter Sellers, "Scarface" with Al Pacino, "Over The Top" with Sylvester Stallone, "The Believers" with Martin Sheen and "Big" with Tom Hanks is 84 today, Dabney Coleman who starred in "WarGames", "Dragnet" and "Short Time" is 82 today, former WWE commentator Jim Ross is 64 today, Hollywood tough guy Mel Gibson best know for his work of tough heroic Los Angeles Police Detective Martin Riggs in "Lethal Weapon" is 58 today, former MacGyver girl Joan Chen is 54 today, race car driver Joel Schumacher is 45 today and former Baywatch lifeguard Nicole Eggert is 42 today. Let's give them all a round of applause and 3 cheers for all their birthdays today. And that's not all. Pat Hingle who played Commissioner James Gordon in the first 4 Batman movies is 5 years gone today.
Happy birthday Gino Marchetti, Dabney Coleman, Jack Hanna, Tia Carrere and Cuba Gooding Jr. Also, on this date in 2012 we lost Larry "Rhino" Reinhardt of Iron Butterfly. In honor, today's song of the day is "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida"
I'd forgotten how much WarGames is just full of a who's who of 80s awesome character actors. Dabney Coleman, Barry Corbin, John Spencer (!)
I had a real fondness for this one when I was younger. Great film. Not revisited it for far too long. BITE THE BULLET (1975), starring Gene Hackman, James Coburn, Candice Bergen, Ben Johnson, Ian Bannen, Jan Michael Vincent, Dabney Coleman and Sally Kirkland. Directed by Richard Brooks.
Oh no, Millennials don't remember 227 or the golden age of Dabney Coleman! Rolling Stone you are weird, man.
My 8 for Christmas is still to come, but here's another number I was given: Here's 12 more things you may not know about me: 1. I've always dreamed of being a writer and actor. I plan to audition someday for a part in a movie/tv show. I don't care if I get the part, I just want to audition. 2. Although I've enjoyed premium cigars for 20 years, I have always hated the smell of cigarette smoke. Still do. 3. I once had a date with Dabney Coleman's niece. 4. My father is one of 8 siblings and I am one of 16 cousins. I am the only cousin with the last name Brooks. 5. I have always been a Christian and a regular church attender. I've never walked away from either one. 6. My favorite author is C.S. Lewis. Although I'm a HUGE fan of the Narnia series and his space trilogy, I've read the book "The Abolition of Man" more times than any other work he has written. 7. I can go indefinitely without cigars or chocolate, but one week without cheese and I go dark side. Emperor Palpatine himself would be ove ...
RIP Dabney Coleman. An angel has left too soon.
I hope everyone knows November is Dabney Coleman Awareness Month. Looking at you

US New movies for November 01, 2013 Broadcast News (1987) Three ambitious workaholics -- a handsome but weak-minded anchorman, his driven producer and a neurotic reporter -- are set loose in a network TV newsroom, where their professional and personal lives become hopelessly cross-wired. Brighton Beach Memoirs (1986) Gene Saks directs this film adaptation of Neil Simon's hit play, starring Jonathan Silverman as Eugene, a Jewish teenager sharing very cramped quarters with his loud, nosy and loving family in Depression-era Brooklyn. Both touching and laugh-out-loud funny, the film co-stars Blythe Danner and Bob Dishy as Eugene's parents, with Lisa Waltz as cousin Nora, the source of many of Eugene's adolescent fantasies and frustrations. Caligula (1979) Malcolm McDowell portrays the infamous emperor who wielded godlike power over ancient Rome while at the same time sleeping with his sister (Teresa Ann Savoy).

Modern Problems with Chevy Chase, Dabney Coleman, and Mary Kay Place is on Movie Ch. I must have watched this 100x time.
WARGAMES: 30 year old movie. Dabney Coleman: 81. Jim Leyland: 67. Matthew Broderick: 51. Broderick's more likely to be cast.
Watched "War Games'' at hotel last night. I vote for Dabney Coleman to play the lead in "The Jim Leyland Story.''

If you don't know who Dabney Coleman is we have nothing else to discuss.
DO NOT MISS the creepy, pervy goodness of BAD RONALD, perhaps the greatest made-for-TV movie ever. Blandly professional visuals spiked with chuckleheaded plot turns and wacky neighbors seem harmless enough at first, only to become something like a YA novel gone hideously, skin-crawlingly wrong. A true nightmare. Plus Dabney Coleman.
A partial list of my favorite things (as spoken by Dabney Coleman)
I watched it with the kids recently. It holds up surprisingly well. Remember when Dabney Coleman was everywhere?

Back in the early 80’s, a producer friend asked if I’d like to work on a Muppets movie. Well, I wasn’t a big Muppets fan and I had just finished writing for a hit show (“Mork and Mindy”) so I wasn’t anxious to do it. Oh, and I was an *** But my friend said it’d be easy; the movie was already written, they just needed someone to write bits for the guest stars. And who would those be, I asked. And he said: Dustin Hoffman, Steve Martin, Laurence Olivier, Richard Pryor, Lily Tomlin and Micheal Jackson. Seriously. I picked my chin off the floor and said yes. Hoffman was going to play a Broadway producer and planned to do his impression of legendary movie producer Bob Evans. But as the shoot approached he became concerned Evans would take offense, and he dropped out. (He later did the impression for an entire movie: “Wag The Dog”.) When Hoffman left, so did everyone else. We ended up with Art Carney, Linda Lavin, Dabney Coleman, Gregory Hines, James Coco, Brooke Shields and Joan ...
Have you guys seen "The Guardian" casting Simon Baker, Dabney Coleman, Alan Rosenberg?? If you're anxious to acquire a good knowledge of Americans' living situation or to study law and psychology, I strongly recommend it. "You are my son doesn't mean you will receive special treatment among my other employees in my firm" said Burton Fallin to his son Nick Fallin." Is he a good father or a bad father? Find it out and watch it! Enjoy, guys!!
Winding down with some cinematic comfort food—9 to 5 (What a way to make a living!). Great ensemble, fun film, and every time Dabney Coleman is on screen, I remember when he got out of my father's car without putting it in park and put a ding in the bumper, which caused my father to say "that *** rectum put a ding in the bumper!" He's not just an evil boss—he's a bumper-dinging *** rectum. My late father had a way with the mother tongue.
This stinks. As the numbness goes away, the more pills I want to take.

Next to "The Towering Inferno" (1974), "WarGames" (1983) and the way underappreciated, forgotten & entertaining "Short Time" (1990), this is my favorite Dabney Coleman (excellent as Jack Flack/Hal Osborne) film and still lots of fun, even for fantasy gamer fans!

American boss held hostage in China. Female workers lock him up due to workplace grievances. Could be a movie script! Sorta reminds me of that movie "9 to 5" where the office workers (led by Dolly Parton) kidnap their evil boss (played by Dabney Coleman).
Profoundly enjoying some 5am "Stop or My Mom Will Shoot" magnificence. The only thing that could possibly make this movie any better would be Burt Reynolds and an eight year old wit a badge, or Dabney Coleman with a deathwish on a timeline. or possibly Queen Latifa if we're blending decades of bad movies together.
Every time I see Joel Quenneville, I think Dabney Coleman (see pic). Cool customer and horse guy to boot!

In 1980s cinema Dabney Coleman was shorthand for misogynist.
Pretty soon the main stream or lame stream media is gonna be dead . Then some incendiary firebrand like Glenn Beck or Alex Jones is gonna lead a bunch of lemmings off a cliff . Then we will start over and probably a good thing.
"Heroes don't just shoot bad guys. They put supper on the table. They fix bicycles. They do boring things. Real things. Not make believe." --Dabney Coleman as Captain Osborne and Jack Flack in CLOAK AND DAGGER. Happy Father's Day, Dad. You'll always be my hero.
I'm starting to feel like Lily Tomlin in the first 38 minutes of "9 to 5".
I felt so bad, last night I saw Dabney Coleman and had to ask who he was. He wasn't even recognizable.
A fact that is fun: the voice of Principal Prickly from "Recess" is the same guy who played the President in "My Date with the President's Daughter." His name is Dabney Coleman, and he appears to be an upstanding gentleman. He also looks in real life how I always imagined Principal Prickly would look in his later years.

Ha, I just saw this for the first time a bit over a year ago! It was interesting after first watching an online review of how bad it is (Nostalgia Critic probably). As a kid, I always wanted to see it because I had a crush on the girl, just from seeing her in trailers and movie posters I guess, and maybe in another movie or two, but no idea what. I think I'm the same age as the kids in the film.
You are so right Dabney! I am doing well, heading later this evening to LA. What about you?

Fun Fact: Fictional residents of the town were portrayed in a 1986 comedic mini series titled "Fresno", featuring Carol Burnett, Dabney Coleman, Teri Garr and Charles Grodin, along with numerous other celebrities.

What's up, baby Dabney Coleman on being kind of a ***
My favorite 80's movie is the one where Dabney Coleman plays a misogynist.
So...Meet the Applegates is even funnier than I remembered. I think all you guys should watch it. And while everyone is great in this movie, Dabney Coleman is a genuine comedy genius.

Can't sleep, so I'm up watching my favorite WWII war movie. I know for most guys my age, it's Saving Private Ryan, and I even know a few fellas that put Enemy at the Gates at the top of their list (that one is actually second on my list). No, for me it's the 1976 classic Midway, staring Henry Fonda and Charlton Heston. Not only was it a pretty accurate tactical recounting of one of the War's most pivotal battles at sea, but had a cast with as many powerful stars of the time as Private Ryan. Along with Heston and Fonda, we had Hal Holbrook, James Coburn, Robert Mitchum, Cliff Robertson, Pat Morita, Robert Wagner, Toshiro Mifune, Robert Ito, and Dabney Coleman just to name a few.

This movie was so worth buying. Great acting by the recently departed Dabney Coleman. Not to mention The Tubes song "Gonna Get It Next Time"
I was watching a movie recently and this question came up during a scene and got me thinking. Please share your thoughts and feelings. Question: Dating a single woman with a kid is a disadvantage because you will never be her priority. True of False?

My favorite Dabney Coleman movie is Short Time. Forgotten classic. Pretty sure it's out of print.
classic film, dabney Coleman. Pour myself a cup of ambition. One does not have to be *** to enjoy such a classic!
Turns out a few of Dabney Coleman's roles didn't make it into the final edit of the piece, so here they are on my blog:
I haven’t done one of these posts in awhile, mostly because my Random Roles interviews have, for the last several months, managed to make it onto the AV Club more or less as I submitted them.
Look, I know you're busy, but you need to take 15 minutes and read Random Roles with Dabney Coleman.
If you've ever wondered how awesome Dabney Coleman is or his thoughts on Telly Savalas, here u go Great job,
The AV Club talks to Dabney Coleman whom I adore as an actor. As a bookshelf, he needs work.

"Wreck It Ralph" versus "Cloak & Dagger," Because Dabney Coleman is the video game character every kid aspires to be...
With that little mustache and the face he just made, could play Dabney Coleman
If there was ever a movie made about my life, I wish Dabney Coleman could play me. It would be funny seeing him in my teen years.
I bet Dabney Coleman still mourns the passing of his son Gary.
he's a tired, overweight Danney Coleman. No offense to Dabney Coleman.
And a lot more fun to watch. Dabney Coleman would make a better president. Joshua, what are you doing?
I added a video to a playlist Decode the Scene GAME - Dabney Coleman Michael Murphy Henry Thomas
If you live in Lathrop, CA, you might consider not voting for the incumbent Mayor Santos who has a habit of chasing the ladies around the desk. He makes Dabney Coleman in "9 to 5" look like a rookie.
I read Dabney Coleman. Wine just got away from me tonite:).I hope,"it happens to the best of us" isn't just a figure of speech.
Romney's going as Dabney Coleman from Cloak & Dagger for Halloween
Workin' 9 to 5, whatta way to make a livin' -- Dabney Coleman.
Romney advocating a flex-schedule like Lily Tomlin's plan in 9 to 5...Dabney Coleman would not be happy...
Omg Romney is the reformed Dabney Coleman character at the end of the old 9 to 5 movie. Is this insane or what?
Romney talking about women in the workplace reminds me of Dabney Coleman in 9 to 5.
Kind of thinks Romney sounds a little like Dabney Coleman in 9 to 5 right about now. It's amusing. And sad.
Mitt's going to play the Dabney Coleman role in a 9 to 5 remake.
Update your maps at Navteq
Romney sounds like Dabney Coleman from 9 to 5
"if you're going to have women in the workforce..." I think that Romney is Dabney Coleman in 9-to-5 tonight.

Sorry, guys. I wish there was a GW or a Dean Wormer or a Dabney Coleman character to be mad at. Don't think that's the case here.
Hah! For some reason, I'm now curious about Dabney Coleman.
My bf asked what happened to Gene Hackman last night. I described the plot of 9 to 5. Oops that was Dabney Coleman.
Debate I'd pay to see: Dabney Coleman as the Commodore vs Gerald McRaney as George Hearst. In Character.
Tonight at the Brattle Theatre! Our comics panel discussion at 6, followed by the Brattle's presentation of a classic 80s spy thriller at 8:30.
Everybody has one friend whose dad looks like Dabney Coleman.
The second season of "Boardwalk Empire" was propelled by a plot against Nucky Thompson led by The Commodore and Jimmy Darmody, but the coup storyline had to be re-written on the fly when actor Dabney Coleman was diagnosed with throat cancer. The A.V. Club interviewed Coleman and "Boardwalk" creator ...
Dabney Coleman's real-life cancer affected Boardwalk Empire (also, Dabney Coleman had cancer)
My fault? I blame Gene Hackman. // Dabney Coleman has been diagnosed with throat cancer.
I know - a bit behind in my must-see tv watching - just watched the first season's first episode of Boardwalk Empire - not bad - good to see Dabney Coleman working again! LOL And of course - Steve Buscemi would be great reading the phone book sitting on a crate!

James Caan and Dabney Coleman have been added to list of stars who will receive Lifetime Achievement Awards during the 27th annual Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival , running Oct. 19-Nov. 11.
Directed by Colin Higgins. With Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton, Dabney Coleman. Three female employees of a sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot find a way to turn the tables on him.
So I pushed back the interview w/ Dabney Coleman by an hour - with his blessing (because I told him I'd stick with the original time if it wasn't workable for him) in order to have dinner with my mother-in-law on her birthday. Unfortunately, Ruby Tuesday's service was so slow that I had to leave before my food was ready in order to make sure I made it home in time for the interview. Naturally, when I got home, I had a message saying that Mr. Coleman had to postpone the conversation 'til tomorrow.
i have removed from my DVR. From number 3 to zip. How dare they kill Michael Pitt, Dabney Coleman and now William Forsythe
One of the Random Roles interviews I've been trying to secure for months is coming to fruition on Tuesday: Dabney Coleman. Any suggestions?
A nice bit of good news in the wake of earlier annoyance: I've confirmed that I'm doing a Random Roles interview with Dabney Coleman on Tuesday.
My friend Jeff just watched a MCMILLAN & WIFE w/ Richard Dawson, Julie Newmar, Dabney Coleman, Robert Loggia you have him beat
Ive been compiling a list of my top 100 brutally honest favourite movies of all time. But first, here's some facts I've noticed... Tom Cruise is not in any of them but if he were, it would have been "Coctail". However, Dabney Coleman shows up more often than one would expect. Speilberg has the most spots as director but John Landis has the second most spots. If the list were 200, John Landis would win. No Johnny Depp or Tim Burton movies. However, if I were to pick a Burton, it would be Pee-Wee's big adventure. Come to think of it, I may go backhand see if there is a spot for Pee-Wee.
Why do you have to look like Dabney Coleman so much?
that movie is epic. Dabney Coleman had such a great run as that guy-- Tootsie, War Games, Cloak +Dagger...
"..think Dolly Parton hog-tying serial groper Dabney Coleman and dragging him across the office floor."
go downstairs dressed like Dabney Coleman and see where that takes you
"Mr. Berman requests a case of Old Crow, a floor keyboard, and Dabney Coleman."
Bryan Cranston is good, but he's no Dabney Coleman.

I used to watch that movie all the time as a kid. Dabney Coleman suspension should never follow Sat morning cartoons :(
I... I think Expendables 3 should be an all Dabney Coleman movie
Yo I heard Dabney Coleman reprises his role as Jack Flak from Cloak & Dagger!
My Achievement of the Week (so far...) FINALLY got my copy of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, taped from the ABC Thursday Night Movie on 2/11/88, dubbed from my Betamax tape onto DVD. Those who are familiar with this version know that it contains footage that was not included in the theatrical release. Most of it was later incorporated into the "Director's Cut" that was released a few years ago, but this version still has the different take of the Kirk/Saavik conversation in the elevator that has never been released in any format. Next project... getting the never-released mini-series "Fresno", starring Carol Burnett and Dabney Coleman, dubbed from Betamax onto DVD.
Nice end to a weekend. Watched "and the Murder of a Rock Star" with Dabney Coleman and a Little Richard cameo.
David Axelrod looks more and more like Dabney Coleman in Tootsie. Is this going to hurt Obama with women (who have seen Tootsie)?
Does anyone else miss Dabney Coleman as much as I do?
On this date in 1966: "That Girl" debuts on ABC. The show starred Marlo Thomas as a young, modern single actress trying to make it in New York City. It ran for 136 episodes over five seasons. It also featured (in regular or recurring roles): Ted Bessell (as Ann's boyfriend Donald), Bernie Kopell, Ruth Buzzi, Dabney Coleman and George Carlin.

Finally watched " Rolling Thunder" I can't believe I have not seen it before and it's easy to see why Quinton Tarantino liked it enough to name his company after it. Great 70's revenge film with William Devane and Tommy Lee Jones and Dabney Coleman.
Getting ready to bare my a** (literally) as the Dabney Coleman Boss from *** in Musical 9 to 5 at Oguquit Playhous ...

Cloak and Dagger with Dabney Coleman! I don't know why, but I was thinking about that movie today.
"you missed me again!" -- Dabney coleman, in a hilarious scene where he's trying to get shot.
Cloak and Dagger another underrated movie. Seems like Dabney Coleman movies are like that. 9 to 5, Wargames, Dragnet, etc.
Random Cloak and Dagger showing late night was a sweet way to end a Friday. Dabney Coleman underrated in my book.
If you're around my age and you don't love Dabney Coleman, then I don't love you. Period. h/t
if you agree that should induct Austin-born legend Dabney Coleman into the Texas Film Hall of Fame. The man is 80 years old!
