Ed Asner to Star in FDR at San Jose Rep
Based upon Dore Schary's Broadway hit Sunrise at Campobello, the piece explores the life of one of America's best-loved presidents and the events and decisions that shaped a nation. The play follows Franklin Delano Roosevelt as he reflects on his years in office, from inauguration to the trials of World War II.
Asner is the recipient of seven Emmy Awards, and received another 16 Emmy nominations, as well as five Golden Globe Awards. His New York City theater credits include Ivanov, The Tempest, Face of a Hero, King Henry V, and Born Yesterday. He is perhaps best known for his work on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
