Mixed Notes - June 28

By Rich Heldenfels Published: June 28, 2012

R.I.P., Don Grady, the affable actor best known as Robbie Douglas on "My Three Sons." Some obits here and here. Local folks may particularly remember an episode where Robbie tried to build a Soap Box Derby racer, with a dream of competing in Akron.

Former local resident Holly Durst (of "Bachelor/Bachelor Pad" fame) and Blake Julian have wed (she's now Holly Julian)  and you can find a wedding video here.

The latest movie to be shot in Northeast Ohio was announced Wednesday in North Canton. Story here. One side note: D.W. Moffett, cast in the football-themed film, was also a recurring character in the classic, football-related series "Friday Night Lights." He played J.D. McCoy's vile father Joe, called by one writer the biggest Texas villain since J.R. Ewing.

Today's mailbag, including a discussion of Mr. Noodle, is here.

My review of "Magic Mike," which I keep thinking of as the "Saturday Night Fever" of male strippers, is here.

 Ann Curry has ended her hosting tenure on "Today." She gave an interview yesterday to USA Today -- apt name, considering -- which you can read here. A description of her on-air farewell is here.
