Jerry Orbach, known mainly for his role on the hit television drama Law & Order was born into a family already familiar with the biz? His father was a former vaudevillan and his mother was a radio singer! Jerry was also a chauffeur to none other than Hollywood sex pot Mae West!
D-did'ya also know what half of the Andore staff were members of the Seattle Seven? A-and that two of us are addicted to heroin? A-a-a-and one member has six toes on one foot? And that all seven of us have made love to Marianne Faithful when she was still dating Mick Jagger? And Deepthroat, yeah, that was us.
WELL NOW YOU DO!

QUESTION FOR 10/03/04:
In the heart-tearing Episode 4 (prod. #104), we finally discover that the real-life model for arch-villain The Jackel is in fact Gus' father. Gus has programmed into this video game character a desire to attack family-associated areas, including parks and maternity wards; only through an autographed baseball (symbolizing family togetherness) can Gus, the "Cold-Steel Kid," be victorious and put The Jackal back into the computer world where he belongs (Gus also encounters his real-life father, which may be Christopher Lloyd's finest moment as an actor).
How does Gus' anger at his father, and subsequent projection of the worst parts of him into his video game as The Jackel, relate to your relationship with your OWN parents? What lesson do you think we can gain from Gus' mistakes and eventual redemption?
