This show was amongst the most memorable of all of my stints in Hollywood. It was taped on a CBS soundstage that was especially dedicated to doing 'Diagnosis Murder' -- in, of all places, a bad neighborhood in Van Nuys, California.
In this episode; 'Slam Dunk Dead' -- I portrayed a professional basketball player that was a witness to a murder on a practice court.
I actually got to play ball with the O'bannon brothers, Rick Berry, Manute Bolles -- and Hip-Hop star - L.L. Cool Jay.
The highlight of this gig was when, during a break -- I accidentally stumbled upon Dick Van Dyke out back of the studio -- while he was relaxing and doing a crossword puzzle that was in the L.A. times.
The man gleefully talked to me alone -- for some 20 minutes -- mostly about his 50+ years in show business. The man truly loves what he is doing... and in his words; has more money than God!! : )
