Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Last week, Oscar-nominated producer/director/actor/writer, Rob Reiner, shared funny and personal stories of his career at Syracuse University's annual Comedy Tonight event at Los Angeles' Writer's Guild Theatre. Moderator Jeff Garlin's relaxed, hilarious rapport with Reiner set a familial tone for the packed house of Syracuse students studying in L.A.
Long before landing the starmaking role of Michael 'Meathead' Stivic on All In The Family (for which he won two Emmy Awards), Reiner acted on a who's who of classic 60s television including 77 Sunset Strip, Batman, That Girl, The Andy Griffith Show, and The Beverly Hillbillies.
Reiner established himself as a director with 1984's revolutionary mockumentary, This Is Spinal Tap. His reputation as an A List Director was cemented with Stand By Me (1986), The Princess Bride (1987), When Harry Met Sally (1989), Misery (1990), A Few Good Men (1992), The American President (1995), and Ghosts of Mississippi (1996).
