The Young and the Restless : MTM and Eric Braden

MTM and Eric Braden

Watching an old episode of Mary Tyler Moore on Sundance. There is a very young Victor having dinner with Mary being a pompous a$$. He got a pie in the face from Ted! It looked like he was laughing at the end of the scene.
She was a gift!

Re: MTM and Eric Braden

I'm watching it now. He was hilarious. Sundance is doing a marathon -- her entire last season.

Re: MTM and Eric Braden

While watching a rerun of "Kolchak: the Night Stalker" many years ago,mLo and behold,there was "Victor" (Eric) as the werewolf on a cruise ship!! It was great.

Here it is :

That episode just played on Sundance here on West Coast about 10 minutes ago. So fun seeing EB portraying a "Victor-like" PITA character, and clearly he was enjoying the role.

Re: MTM and Eric Braden

I'm glad others saw the MTM episode. Of course Titanic is on too.
I would have a heart attack if I met Leonardo. But EB didnt show an ounce of fangirling. lol!

Re: MTM and Eric Braden

He was also on "Gunsmoke" back in the early 70's playing an evil cowboy/train robber and shot Matt Dillion.

Re: MTM and Eric Braden

Kind of funny that he also played Robin's father on How I Met Your Mother, because her father was played by two different actors, the second being Ray Wise (AKA Ian Ward).

Re: MTM and Eric Braden

EB has said he hates that he accepted that role in Titanic !

Re: MTM and Eric Braden

I wonder why, other than the fact that he was only in but maybe 4 scenes.

Re: MTM and Eric Braden

Maybe because he was with his 3rd wife and she was in a delicate condition?
I have no clue how many wives he has really has. His role wasn't that big. But I remember seeing it at the movies and gasping when I saw him. 20 years ago! I'm sure he appreciates the royalties if he gets them. I can never resist watching when it airs.

If you look at his "filmography" , he has been in so many things. I love him.

Re: MTM and Eric Braden

Me, too. Since the Rat Patrol, LOL!

Re: MTM and Eric Braden

As a kid, I remember hissing at him in "Escape From the Planet of the Apes". I didn't recognize him on "Y&R" when I first started watching. He's also very mean on an episode of "The Nanny" as a theater critic. Ironically, when Fran ended up on the "Y&R" set, there were shots of many of the regulars, but not him.
