TCM Remembers James Garner With An all-Day Marathon, July 28th!

Americanization-of-Emily-med

Without Bret Maverick, there’s a decent chance we would never have had Han Solo. James Garner’s reluctant hero/antihero changed the game forever – but Garner was no mere television star. In an era when moving between film and television was unheard of, he did it with seeming impunity – always playing characters that more than the usual going on behind their eyes.

He could woo Doris Day, fight Bruce Lee or duck behind the bar with the same ease – though his characters never quite seemed to be as at ease as he was. He co-starred with some greats – Marlon Brando, William Holden, Randolph Scott, Julie Andrews and Lee Remick to name a few.

Besides Maverick and The Rockford Files, he starred in movies like The Great Escape, Mister Buddwing, The Children’s Hour and Victor/Victoria – the last three of which will be included in the TCM Remembers James Garner marathon scheduled for Monday, July 28th.

He’ll voice Bud Buckwald, married father of three and a Border Patrol agent who’s a step behind the times and feels threatened by the changes in his neighborhood. The series is ‘a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America, centered on two very different families living in a fictional Southwest desert town on the U.S.-Mexico border.’

EMMY AWARD WINNER HANK AZARIA PUTS DOWN ROOTS IN “BORDERTOWN” ON FOX

Azaria to Voice Lead Character, Joining Additional Featured Voices Alex Borstein, Missi Pyle, Judah Friedlander, Nicholas Gonzalez and Efren Ramirez

Multiple Emmy Award winner Hank Azaria (THE SIMPSONS) has been cast as BUD BUCKWALD, the lead voice role on BORDERTOWN, the new animated comedy from FAMILY GUY’s Mark Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane. Azaria joins the previously announced voice cast of Alex Borstein (FAMILY GUY, “Getting On”), Missi Pyle (“Jennifer Falls,” “Gone Girl”), Judah Friedlander (“30 Rock”), Nicholas Gonzalez (SLEEPY HOLLOW) and guest voice Efren Ramirez (“Napoleon Dynamite”).

BORDERTOWN takes a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring in America. Exploring family, politics and everything in between with a cross-cultural wink, the series centers on two very different families living in a fictional Southwest desert town on the U.S. – Mexico border. Azaria’s BUD BUCKWALD is a married father of three and a Border Patrol agent who is just a tad behind the times and feels slightly threatened by the cultural changes transforming his neighborhood. He lives next door to ERNESTO GONZALEZ (Gonzalez), an ambitious immigrant and family man, who has been in the country less than 10 years, but is already doing better than Bud – which, it turns out, is a bit of an issue for the less-industrious native.

Bud is married to JANICE BUCKWALD (Borstein), both the wisest and most oblivious member of the family. The Buckwald kids include BECKY (Borstein), a socially awkward, big-boned geek; SANFORD (Friedlander), a loser who thinks he’s a player; and GERT (Pyle), a beauty pageant-obsessed five-year-old with a pet pig. Meanwhile, living the American Dream next door are the Gonzalezes, including MARIA, Ernesto’s wife; their son, RUIZ (Ramirez); and their 21-year-old nephew, J.C. (Gonzalez), a recent college graduate.

Azaria provides multiple voices on THE SIMPSONS, including “Moe,” “Apu” and “Chief Wiggum.” He will next be seen on the critically acclaimed drama “Ray Donovan.” His film credits include “Night at the Museum 2: Battle of the Smithsonian,” “Run, Fatboy, Run,” “The Simpsons Movie,” “America’s Sweethearts,” Tim Robbins’ “Cradle Will Rock,” David E. Kelley’s “Mystery, Alaska,” “Mystery Men,” “Godzilla,” “Homegrown,” “Great Expectations,” Woody Allen’s “Celebrity” and “The Smurfs.” He also starred in the cable series “Huff” and the World War II miniseries “Uprising.” He appeared as “Professor Groteschele” in the live television broadcast “Fail Safe.” Azaria won an Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for his work in the 1999 telefilm “Tuesdays with Morrie.” He won three other Emmy Awards for his work on THE SIMPSONS. He was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award for his memorable role as “Agador Spartacus” in Mike Nichols’ “The Birdcage,” and garnered critical praise for his portrayal of television producer Al Freedman in the Academy Award-nominated “Quiz Show.” Other feature credits include “Heat,” “Grosse Point Blank,” “Now and Then” and “Pretty Woman.”

BORDERTOWN is produced by 20th Century Fox Television. The series is created and written by Mark Hentemann. Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane (FAMILY GUY) are executive producers. Alex Carter (FAMILY GUY) and Dan Vebber (AMERICAN DAD, “Futurama”) are co-executive producers. Lalo Alcaraz (“La Cucaracha”) and Gustavo Arellano (“¡Ask a Mexican!”) are consulting producers. Valentina L. Garza (THE SIMPSONS) is a supervising producer.
