Forget producer and writer and all that for a moment. The actor: Gerald McRaney started his acting career in the late ’60s and kept so busy throughout the ’70s that it seemed like he was in every hour … I’m still in touch all the time with Jim Beaver, and working with Timothy [Olyphant] is terrific.

GM: Yes, but I think he was tempted from time to time. My favorite book is “Light in August” by William Faulkner, and the book I’m reading right now is “The Churchill Factor: How One Man Made History” by Boris Johnson.

Gerald was born on August 19, 1947. GM: Well, I’m glad. AVC: Simon & Simon was your first time as a series regular, but you’d certainly done a ton of guest roles by that point. It was just one of the best experiences I’ve had in my life. We were just sort of stumbling our way into doing what we do, and there’s a certain aspect of that sort of guerrilla filmmaking that appeals to me, because I think a lot of good creative stuff winds up being done. Rich people… It’s not a fashion show for them. AVC: And you were on some of them multiple times. Not so much creatively on that one, although it was a wonderful creative experience, and Shanna Reed was just a joy.

I don’t really even remember if it wound up in the movie at all. We start shooting it in about a week or ten days, thereabouts. Welcome aboard.” Well, shit! AVC: There are probably a lot of answers to that question when it comes to Barlow Connally. AVC: This is an absolute on-the-fly question based on what you just said, but when you did your episode of Cannon, did you mention to William Conrad that you used to listen to him on Gunsmoke? Jameson and I did – for eight years. When they came in, she would do local casting and stuff, and she actually lived in my neighborhood and I got to know her. Gerald McRaney, Actor: Die unendliche Geschichte. Pretty much what you see is what you get with Wilford. Barlow aligns himself by bringing up examples of Nighthorse’s unscrupulous practices.

GM: That’s the most beneficial role of my life, easily. That thing of living fairly modestly and not really caring about the money all that much, I think all of that is sort of Warren Buffett. Some actors would complain that he would change dialogue on them at the last moment, but I loved it, because it was always being refined, always being perfected. Back then, every day must’ve brought you another new experience. So we had a wonderful time on that show because we very rarely did anything! You can say to your wife, “I’ll be home at 8 p.m. this evening, let’s have dinner together,” which you can’t do with a movie or an hour-long TV show. AVC: This next one is the most obscure thing on my list—there’s not even so much as a clip from it on YouTube—but the credits alone are fascinating enough that it’s a must-ask. GM: No, it didn’t. Club: How did you find your way into the series in the first place? I was very excited about Jericho in the beginning of it because it was going to be dealing with the after-effects of a nuclear war. You’ve been acting for several decades. But apart from that, no, not really. And playing the role was fascinating. I’m doing a scene with him, and I’m just watching this guy do what he does, and it’s so simple and it’s so powerful and it’s just so damned good… I just got caught up watching him and totally forgot I was in a scene with him, which was a little embarrassing.

Our paths crossed, but we never got a chance to work together. [Laughs.] [Laughs.] I was a two-time loser when Delta and I met. It’s a very civilized way of being an actor. And then through her I got introduced to her nephew, and this guy, he was going to be making this little low-budget film, and we all sort of hit it off, and we wound up making a movie. Most people know Gerald McRaney from the long-running series “Simon & Simon” and “Major Dad” and, more recently, “House of Cards” and “ Longmire ,” in which he plays the wealthy and powerful real estate magnate Barlow Connally. It was going to be post-apocalyptic. I play a chief of security for a very wealthy man who Will Smith is trying to con in a very big way. And since he had an apartment in Paris, it was decided, “Let’s go shoot there!” So he wrote—or had written—a two-hour episode of Simon & Simon, and we went to Paris for a month and shot. And I asked to be let out of it. And you rehearse for four-and-a-half days, and then they bring an audience in, and you shoot it. That’s basically the premise of the show – the adventures that are had by the vice president and her secret agent. And instead of me, they hired some guy named Selleck. Well, I’ve had three cups of coffee today and I had five cups of tea yesterday. I read the script, and I was, like, “Whoa, what did I do to piss somebody off?”.

And at the same time, I was doing those little low-budget films and a little piecemeal work in various and sundry other projects. One of my favorites also!

But we had guys like Vincent McEveety and Burt Kennedy and several other people, but there were a handful that I really admired what they were doing, and I basically just sort of copied what they were doing, at least to begin with. “Longmire” will be available in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand. We’re trying to work out dates right now so that I can go back and do “Longmire” and this new series at the same time. I think Jake Lassiter was on NBC. I think I could do this!”.

McRaney is American television and movie actor and is best known as one of the stars of the television shows Simon and Simon, Major Dad, and Promised Land. I really liked it. We had lunch together the first day, and we had our first date just after we finished doing that episode, and basically we’ve been together every day ever since.

McRaney is best known as one of the stars of the television shows Simon & Simon, Major Dad, Promised Land and House of Cards. And then, again, he wrote a three-story arc for this guy that he had been building up to for a season and then just kept asking me to come back. Again, a beautifully written part, but of course the most important thing is that it’s what really introduced me to my wife [Delta Burke]. But the producer of it and the guy who had written it, Phil DeGuere, when he had a show called Pirate’s Key [the TV movie that served as the pilot Simon & Simon] he remembered me. One is Big Daddy in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” and the other is Claudius in “Hamlet.”. [Laughs.] And they had had a little bit of experience in the movie business, but not enough so it showed. GM: A little bit, a little bit. In those days, that was as beneficial as anything else I was doing, so I went ahead and did those things.

AVC: In the case of the other two films you did with him, was that a case where you felt like you owed it to Houck for getting you started? I called my wife after the whole fitting was over, which took hours and hours and hours, and I told her, “I think they just spent more money on the wardrobe than they’re ever going to pay me on this thing.” I mean, they must’ve spent over $100K on my wardrobe… and do you really have to spend that kind of money on a skinny bald guy? When Longmire tells Barlow Connolly (Gerald McRaney) that he’s convinced Branch was murdered, he feels he’s found a kindred spirit. Very rarely did he go to his trailer, unless he was tired or there was an interview or something like that going on. AVC: You and your wife have also worked together a few other times, but it seems like there’s a decent shot that you might have a story to tell about working with Willie Nelson on Where The Hell’s That Gold?!!? AVC: That’s great that, at least to some extent, you can still find yourself in awe of other actors. I feel very, very fortunate to be doing the things I’m doing right now.

We had such wonderful directors on that show and some wonderful writers, and what I’d do was just get in their hip pocket and follow them around like a puppy dog, watching them do what they did.

And the writers in that episode stole a line from me, because there’s a scene where the brothers are driving to meet this lady, and A.J.—Jameson Parker’s role—has never even heard about this woman, and there’s this big effect that the mention of her name has on me, and he wants to know about her, and I’m being rather closed-mouthed, and he says, “All right, just… what does she look like?” And there’s a little back and forth, and finally I said to him, “All right, well, one thing: She’s got those kind of gin-clear blue eyes that a man knows, once he’s lost in them, he’s never going to find his way out.” [Laughs.] It was a fluke, my getting to play leading-man roles for a while, but I’m really a character guy.

That, and an opportunity to work in front of the camera again.
