Clooney
and friends
have paid
their dues
Los Angeles Times
HOLLYWOOD -George Clooney
is one of the biggest names on TV
thanks to "ER," but it took him nearly
eight years and almost as many series to
achieve superstar status.
Producerssand network executives
kept putting tam in shows cau they
onw he had something spcial. "Be
was always great," says Peter Golde
senior vice president of tlent ad cast-
ing at CBS, "whether it be in 'Baby
Talk' or 'Roseanne.'"
Several regulars on new fall series find
hope in that story. Wendell Pierce, Leah
Remini, Marc F'euerstein, Debra Messing
and Jeffrey I. Sams all appeared in series
last season thai were canceled but are get-
ting another shot at stardom.
Pierce, best known from "Waiting to
Exhale," is actually appearing in his
third CBS series in a row. "I went from
a one-hour drama, 'Maloney,' with
Peter Strauss, and then I did 'The
Gregory lines Show,"' he says.
This season, Pierce is playing a for-
mer baseball player turned sportscaster
on the CBS comedy "The Brian
Benben Show."
"I guess I'm kind of like the kid who
moves a lot," Pierce says, laughing.
"The one who makes friends at new
schools all the time. Ina way, it's a chal-
lenge because it's something ideal for
an actor. You try to do different things
and be as diverse as possible.
Unfortunately, you know you don't
have time to continue to develop a char-
acter that you start one year. It forces
you to begin to develop a new charac-
ter."
Still, Pierce. who realizes many
stars of failed series disappear, feels
"very blessed" that he keeps work-
ing.
CBS, Golden says, loves Pierce
because he's a "wonderful" actor
and "great" with comedy.
"It's great to have a good actor

George Clooney has traveled a rough road to stardom, but he is now reaping the
benefits of his hard work.

who can do comedy in a drama, and
that's what he did in 'Maloney,'
which was essentially a light drama.
He brought so much energy to what
he did in 'Maloney' that we knew it
would translate (in a comedy). He
was great in 'Gregory Hines."'
When the role came up on "Benben,"
says Golden, "we had talked about a
few people, and a couple of people
came in and read. Everybody kept
going back to the thought of Wendell. I
think he will once again bring a great
layered performance.
He can have moments where you
really feel for him, and in other
moments he's really funny. There's
something that makes you want to
watch this person"
Golden feels the same about Remini,
who stars with comic Kevin James in
the CBS comedy, "The King of
Queens." She appeared last year on
NBC's "Fired Up" with Sharon
Lawrence .
"You just want to watch her" Golden
says. "Her chemistry with Kevin James
is so great"
Remini, who also appeared in 1989 on
NBC's Saturday morning series, "Saved
By the Bell,' says it was weird to report

to work on a new show this fall.
"It's, like, all new writers, a new
dressing room" she says, laughing. "It's
like when you go to seventh grade.
You're in the same school from first to
sixth grade and then you go to a totally
new school and you see your friends
once in a while"
The actress shot the pilot for
"King of Queens" while she was still
working on "Fired Up." "It's this
thing called second position," she
explains. "You can do another show,
but only in second position, meaning
if 'Fired Up' got picked up, they
would have to have recast (the role
on 'King')."
Initially, Remini didn't want to do
"King of Queens;' in which she plays
the wife of a delivery man. "Originally,
it was written just for the 'wife.' They
wanted me for it, but they knew I didn't
want to be a woman who is cooking and
cleaning. bThat'snot what women do all
the time.
So she met with the staff, and with
James. "We did i little riff in the room
and the writers werelike,'What can we
do? We want to put your voice in
there!" she says. "You don't come
across that a lot."
