Happy Birthday Robert Loggia

 

Don't forget this fine fellow.  He's 84 today.

Wow.... that commercial is frickin brilliant.

I want Robert Loggia to walk into my kitchen unannounced... and tell me to drink anything.  That would be so great.  I wish that happened more.

Lovely coincidence as I've just seen Innocent Blood again for the first time in a long time (it's still bad) and got to thinking about how it's like a gathering of ersatz DeNiro / Pacino guys (back when they weren't yet parodies of themselves): When you can't get Bobby or Al, you get__________. That said, I still on occasion have fantasies of expressing road rage the Robert Loggia way.

Independence Day is all kinds of crap, but when he steps up to Bill Pullman and says 'I'd like to know what you think you're doing, Mr President." it's pretty great.

 

AND how awesome is it that Loggia, Sbarge and Adam Baldwin are running the war room?!  Take that Aliens!

"Officer and a Gentleman" needs a scene at the end where Loggia salutes Gere. Otherwise the opening is just a setup that never gets paid off.

Love Loggia in Jagged Edge. "Fuck him, he was trash." That's another character I wish would have gotten his own spin-off film.

 

And this is the highlight of an otherwise by-the-numbers sports film:

IMDB:  At the graduation ceremony when Zack says he's going to get his "first salute", he is referring to his father. A scene was shot at the graduation where Zack's father salutes him. This goes back to a point in the beginning when Zack's Dad said he'd never salute him. Robert Loggia protested that being cut out of the movie. The footage is considered lost.

 

ROBERT LOGGIA PROTESTED...... is the best start to any sentence.  

 

Come on Criterion, dig that shit up.

Why'd they cut that out?!

He starred in a show call  T.H.E Cat.  (1966-67)

"T. Hewitt Edward Cat is a retired acrobat (also a retired thief) who has become a bodyguard. He works out of his friend's cafe, El Casa del Gato, where he uses his skills to protect his clients. Many of his adventures involve using his cat burglar's skills."

 

This sounds awesome.

Holy shit. Until I saw that picture I just assumed that Robert Loggia was born an ornery, middle-aged, Italian-American man. Also, the synopsis and character background for that show is absurdly convoluted.

WTF? That's one of the great underrated sports comedies. Dozens of sneaky funny lines, doesn't always go for the easy laugh.

Loggia does a terrific interview in this quarter's Shock Cinema. Dude is still going strong.

FYI

 

Apparently, there was a small chance that Robert Loggia would have played 'Frank' in Blue Velvet. It didn't work out although, that's how he ended up in Lost Highway.

Robert Loggia defied Lincoln Hawk.

Loggia voice work as Admiral Petrarch in Freespace 2 is a big part of what made that game so damn fantastic.

They should have gone with Loggia's voice for Siri.
