He played John Wayne‘s adversary Bart Jason in the 1966 Western El Dorado. He is the most honored male performer in the history of the Primetime Emmy Awards, having won seven.

He has played Santa Claus in several films, notably in 2003’s Elf.[3] In 2009, he starred as the voice of Carl Fredricksen in Pixar‘s animated film Up, and made a guest appearance on CSI: NY in the episode “Yahrzeit”. In early 2011, Asner returned to television as butcher Hank Greziak in Working Class, the first original sitcom on cable channel CMT. He starred in the Canadian television series Michael, Tuesdays and Thursdays, on CBC Television and has appeared in the 2013 television series The Glades. Asner guest-starred as Guy Redmayne, a homophobic billionaire who supports Alicia Florrick’s campaign, in the sixth season of The Good Wife.

Anyone who knows me are aware that I am a bit of a movie buff. Over the past few years I have been collecting signed photographs of my favourite actors.
