    James Garner is by far the best actor ever! I would love to meet this guy and have him autograph my firebird.

    One of the coolest guys on the planet. Smooth, classy, and sharp as a tack! Rockford Files was one of a kind, as is James Garner.

    I know he played God in God, the Devil, and Bob (thanks right wing christians for killing that show), anyway, why does everyone love this guy?

    Greed affected him then, greed affects us all now

    Jimmy Rockford FOREVER!…Yet another iteration of freakin’ “Law & Order” NEVER! Hey Dick Wolf, here’s an idea: “Law & Order (insert goofy sound effect HERE) Animal Control”

    Jim Rockford was/is the best character on television…from his crappy trailer to his bad credit to his choice of friends, most of us can relate to Rockford. Jim always said “I’m not looking for any trouble” but he always found it…and generally his friends had only one redeeming quality in them – Angel was a good con-man apprentice, Gandolph was good with his hands…what a cast of characters. And Becker seemed to always weasel Jim’s Laker tickets…usually as a condition for helping Jim.

    James Garner + Family Guy = Crappy Movie On TNT

    good interview. Costas is usallu good.

  20. SuperBagshot says:

    He was well paid for it was’nt he? Stop sticking up for ppl who don’t need it.

  21. roquefortfiles says:

    @SuperBagshot I work in film. He is not lying. It is BRUTAL. And Universal are a bunch of scammers. The creative bean counters could find a way to show no profits at all from shows. That he stood up to them and said.. “Not so fast” Good on him. I respect him.

  22. LeGrandeBanane says:

    @SuperBagshot Give the bloke a break for being honest because he certainly wasn’t “whining” as you call it. There were many scenes that show him hobbling/limping rather than running throughout most of the series. These days they would have a multiple of stunt actors just to walk across the road at pedestrian lights.

  23. janice94304 says:

    I don’t think it was whinning. It just stated what caused his health problems.

  24. briandp22269 says:

    @SuperBagshot I think we would all like to see him come off as THE Jim Rockford we know from the series, but that is unreasonable. He’s a human, and it sounds like he had some gripes. I saw one where he went off even worse on his relationship between him and NBC toward the end, the whole thing about him owing them 4 more episodes or something – thus the reason we got those reDux in the 90s.

    I must say though, the Rockford files are my all-time favorite TV Program — Go Jimbo!


  25. SuperBagshot says:

    he comes across as a bit of whiner. standing on a pavement is hard, knee operation, universal done me wrong etc
