James Brolin and TV Shows
In the popular TV series, “Roseanne,” James Brolin played the role of Edgar Wellman Jr., the son of the founder of the Wellman Plastics company. Brolin also starred in the season nine episode “Dear Mom and Dad.” Brolin has been acting for over six decades and has played a variety of roles. He appeared on NBC’s “The West Wing” as Republican Presidential Candidate Robert Ritchie, and also appeared in movies such as Marcus Welby, M.D.
In the 1990s, Brolin starred in “Extreme” and “Angel Falls.” He also appeared in several made-for-television films, including “The Steps.” After the cancellation of “Roseanne,” Brolin remained good friends with Sellecca, attending her wedding to John Tesh. The two went on to star in a series for ABC called “Extreme” and “Angela: Wings of Gold” respectively. Afterward, they appeared on ABC’s “The West Wing,” which earned Brolin two Emmy Award nominations.
After graduating from high school, Brolin decided to pursue acting. His parents encouraged him to study theater and the performing arts. After college, he was invited to audition for several commercials and TV shows. After he got the part, Brolin was signed to a deal with 20th Century Fox. He later went on to appear on three episodes of the hit television series Batman. Brolin worked with Burt Ward and Adam West.
The Amityville Horror
A family moves into a mansion in New York State that was the site of a recent mass killing and was once inhabited by an 18th century satanist. They soon discover that they have been plagued by evil spirits. Strange flies start appearing out of nowhere, and the walls and pipes start oozing blood and slime. They seek help from a local priest to exorcise the evil spirits.
The Amityville Horror was a major commercial success for American International Pictures, grossing $80 million in the United States. It became one of the highest-grossing independent films of all time, despite mostly negative reviews from critics. Lalo Schifrin’s score earned the film an Academy Award nomination, and Margot Kidder won the Saturn Award for Best Actress.
While Brolin had not initially signed on to play the role, the character eventually won him over. Although he was a big name in Hollywood (including roles in “Traffic,” “Westworld”, and “Skyjacked”), Brolin was skeptical about taking the role. But a heart-pounding incident at two in the morning convinced him to reconsider.
A 2003 American made-for-television biographical drama film about U.S. President Ronald Reagan and his family, The Reagans stars James Brolin as a former president who struggles to cope with his legacy. The film’s story follows the family’s ups and downs through the Reagan years, as they struggle to keep their home and family together despite their differences.
The Reagans and James Brolin have a complicated relationship. The film has received both positive and negative criticism from conservatives. The movie was originally canceled by CBS just twelve days before its air date. The series then found a home on Showtime. It received seven Emmy nominations, including one for Judy Davis.
A recent poll shows that many viewers are displeased with the film’s portrayal of the Reagan family. The movie’s political agenda has also been the source of some controversy. Director Matt Tyrnauer has revealed that his original script for the film included the phrase “they that live in sin shall die in sin.” The film depicts President Reagan’s reactions to the AIDS epidemic, and even shows Nancy Reagan beseeching him to do more to fight it.
The Golden Globe Award-winning actor, known for his role in the ABC drama “Hotel,” has a diverse list of acting credits across many genres, including drama and comedy. Though he has appeared in numerous films, his most notable roles have been in TV dramas.

The hotel TV series, which aired on ABC from September 21, 1983, centered on the Saint Gregory Hotel in San Francisco. Connie Sellecca starred in the series, which was later followed by Flying High and The Greatest American Hero. James Brolin was also cast in the pilot episode.
