Craigy and Brimley late night comedy gold
"I like produce, but I don't like Hollywood." Wilford Brimley made his debut last night on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Playing an ornery cuss seems to come naturally to the 77-year-old actor, who, as he tells Ferguson, rarely ventures outside of his Wyoming home these days.
Brimley revealed he has Scottish roots, which, as Ferguson dryly notes, makes sense. Ferguson is terrific at allowing his guests to shine while still working sharp, spontaneous comedy into his interviews. Brimley shows he still has that killer timing; these two could tour. Stick around for the mouth organ recital at the end.
