The original cast of “Hill Street Blues


When Johnny killed Anthony (which didn’t happen until after this issue), it was a great storyline; but man did GH lose a good actor. I loved Bruce. He was so hilarious and creepy. I always wonder, and if anyone knows please tell me, was Anthony’s character made before Bruce or for Bruce. Did writers say, “Hey, lets make Anthony Zacchara a crazy, old loon.”? Or did the casting people chose Bruce, and then manipulate the writing to allow Bruce to provide his own personal flair? I’m guessing it was the latter. Either way it was great.
